Fraud and non-compliance with laws and regulations are common business and audit risks that need to be managed. Many boards and management lack a basic understanding of prevention and detection controls that can significantly reduce risks. They often rely on external auditors to detect risks, a misplaced strategy. Let’s look at how to manage them.
This session will:
- Describe recent changes in the regulatory environment that strengthen asset protection, compliance, and whistleblowing
- Provide examples of recent frauds and NOCLAR, and discuss what can be learned
- Identify detection and prevention controls to mitigate fraud and NOCLAR risks, and
- Discuss how to apply ASA 250 Consideration of Laws and Regulations in an Audit of a Financial Report and ASA 240 The Auditor’s Responsibilities Relating to Fraud in Audit of Financial Report to minimise audit risk.
