Session Topic

Fraud and NOCLAR risks – a clear and present

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.
