We are pleased to have Natasha DeKroon, Brian Karp and Joe Oringel presenting on Data Analytics. This session is primarily about methodology, not use of a specific tool. ACL and other audit software will be discussed; however, the session will focus on the activities of brainstorming, data acquisition, and interpreting results more than detailed programming or scripting techniques with these audit software tools.

Items covered during the session will also include:
  • Review the business case for audit data analytics and identify the skills that are needed for successful execution.
  • Explore IIA Guidance for Data Analytics, Anti-Fraud Programs, and for Continuous Auditing.
  • Understand the combination of business, auditing, and technology knowledge domains that are needed to work together to accomplish a successful data-driven audit project.
  • Review and discuss common barriers to success with data analytics. Identify available resources and discuss alternatives for overcoming these barriers.
