Course description and objectives:

In every audit, the auditor is required to specifically assess the risk of material misstatement of the financial statements due to fraud. Fraud auditing is a course that examines the types of fraud considered by auditors when auditing financial statements: fraudulent financial reporting and misappropriations of assets. This course describes the way auditors gather information to assess fraud risk in every audit and develop appropriate responses to identified fraud risks, after considering the effectiveness of management's antifraud programs and controls. This course focuses on the typical fraud techniques and highlights areas that are subject to greater risk of fraud. Once the auditor suspects fraud, it is their responsibility to gather additional evidence, often through inquiry. This course also describes the auditor’s responsible for making certain communications about suspected or detected fraud to senior
management and the audit committee.
