In the wake of the recent financial crisis, increasing the effectiveness of auditing has weighed heavily on the minds of those responsible for governance. When a business is profitable and paying healthy dividends to its stockholders, fraudulent activities and accounting irregularities can go unnoticed. However, when revenue and cash flow decline, internal costs and operations may be scrutinized more diligently, and discrepancies can emerge as a result.
Effective Auditing for Corporates provides you with proactive advice-to help you safeguard core value within a corporation and to ensure that auditing processes and key personnel meet the expectations of management, compliance, and stockholders alike.
Aimed primarily at auditors (both external and internal), risk managers, accountants, CFOs, and consultants, Effective Auditing for Corporates covers:
* Compliance and the corporate audit
* Fraud detection
* Risk-based auditing
* The development of Sarbanes-Oxley
* Cultural changes in external auditing
* Auditing management information systems
