The goals of the Mystery Fraud Training are to teach auditors through a simulated audit experience. Starting with the Planning phase, you will be supplied with basic client background and it will be up to the audience to participate and develop the audit from there. Activities will include:
- Interviewing key personnel in the process being audited throughout the event
- Determining informa$on needs and discussing next steps
- Examining evidence and drawing conclusions
- Adapting audit programs to meet audit requirements despite time constraints and information availability
- Finally, doing something that many auditors don’t get a chance to do—perform a confrontational admission seeking interview!
Along the way, Timothy will provided some of his real life keys to a
successful audit such as “My Red Flags,” the four things that help
identify fraud, data mining advice and ensuring evidence is admissible.
Timothy will also share past experiences and cases throughout
the event to emphasize learning points.
