|Method of Delivery:
Intended Audience: Accounting Educators
Learning Objectives: Students quickly learn internal auditors provide one of two services: Assurance or Consulting. The IIA's IPPF Attribute Standards under Proficiency and Due Professional Care states: "Internal auditors must have sufficient knowledge of key information technology risks and controls and available technology-based audit techniques to perform their assigned work." Don will demonstrate typical assurance and consulting work assignments using CaseWare IDEA data analysis software. The focus will be on key financial accounts and a couple of recent fraud cases from the local newspaper. The workshop is hands-on optional, so you have the opportunity to follow along with your own windows based laptop and learn through active participation, or simply listen and gain a better understanding of how data analytics can be applied in your work. Either way, you will leave with valuable examples of how data analytics can enhance your skills as an auditor or accountant.
