Fundamentals of Forensic Auditing

Several large organizations, Government Departments, NGO’s, banks, and small businesses have become victims of the scourge of various types of business frauds. These frauds have resulted in the loss of funds from tens of thousands to multi-million dollar losses. With continual digitization of financial records and transactions, fraud prevention and detection is set to be more challenging. More than usual, auditors need to be alert for situations, control weaknesses, inadequacies in record keeping, errors and unusual transactions or results which could be indicative of fraud, improper or unlawful expenditure, unauthorized operations, waste, inefficiency or lack of probity. With this in mind, this workshop is planned to address alongside usual forensic audit issues, the challenges that have emerged as a reason of digitization trends.
