Auditing Bits in Bytes Session 4: Assessing and Responding to Risk

Description

Auditing Bits in Bytes™ – A Practical Break-Down of “Real World” Best Practices Applied in Highly Successful Audits is a series of eight individual sessions that guide professionals through the complete audit process from “A to Z” – starting with Pre-Engagement Planning Activities, and going all the way through Wrap-up and Quality Control.
Attempting to perform an effective and efficient audit can be intimidating and confusing, for new and experienced auditors alike. This series will provide valuable tips and techniques from an experienced auditor that are needed to successfully design and perform financial statement audits in “real-life” circumstances. Extensive illustrative examples will be used to reinforce a practical understanding of the most critical principles and standards that support a high-quality, insightful, and profitable engagement.
This 2-hour session focuses on how to appropriately identify, evaluate, document and respond to risks of material misstatement due to either fraud or error in order to effectively and efficiently design the nature, timing and extent of further audit procedures (tests of controls for operating effectiveness and substantive audit procedures).
