 CIA Exam


As The IIA’s premier designation for more than 40 years, the CIA sets the standard for excellence within the profession. The CIA journey begins with a focus on The IIA’s International Standards for the Professional Practice of Internal Auditing (Standards) and aspects of mandatory guidance under the IPPF. The journey continues with a focus on managing an internal audit project and culminates with concepts related to internal control, risk, governance, and technology. The CIA is a 3-part process for establishing your foundational core and starting point for career growth to:

  • Distinguish you from your peers.
  • Demonstrate your proficiency with internal staff and external clients.
  • Develop your knowledge of best practices in the industry.
  • Demonstrate your proficiency and professionalism.
  • Lay a foundation for continued improvement and advancement.

December CPE Event: Managing Fraud Risks Using Root Cause Analysis and Other Tools

When: Monday, December 4, 2017; 9:00 - 5:00 PM 
Where: Capital One Towers, Vienna VA
Difficulty level: Beginner - Intermediate
Lunch will be provided

​​​​​​​Fraud is a risk for every organization from the church to big corporations. Fraud has historically been a risk that most everyone knows is there, and most don't want to acknowledge.
The impact of large frauds includes the ruin of organizations, financial losses to stakeholders, damaged careers and reputations, and negative impacts to the economy.
In response to major frauds, the government has implemented regulations and legislations aimed at increasing accountability and responsibility for fraud prevention and detection. This puts pressure on organizations to develop and maintain controls to minimize incidents and impacts of fraudulent behaviors. It has also had a major impact on the roles and responsibilities of accountants and auditors.
The IIA's Interactional Professional Practices Framework (IPPF) requires internal auditors to consider the probability of significant errors, fraud, noncompliance, and other exposures when developing the engagement objectives. Our internal audit role includes not only taking steps to detect these exposures, but we also have the responsibility to communicate these risks to our audit clients and educate management on fraud awareness.
In this seminar, we will focus on:
  • How fraud is defined
  • The different types of fraud
  • The historical development of the auditor's fraud finding responsibilities
  • What fraud statistics say and what they indicate
  • Why fraud happens
  • The causes of fraud and ways to prevent and detect fraud, including:
    • Root cause analysis tools (the five whys, fishbone diagrams, failure mode and effects analysis, inputs-processes-outputs, and flowcharting of the process)
    • Internal control frameworks developed by COSO and their components
    • COSO's fraud risks and control components
    • Linking the Fraud Triangle to Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs
  • What we need to see, to see fraud and fraud risks
  • Tools we can use to help find fraud and operational risks
  • The BIG Frauds and what we can learn from them
  • Ways we can help educate the audit client and raise fraud awareness.
Cost for Members: $240
Cost for Non-Members: $250
