Managing your fraud risk as a preparer or auditor

Fraud is a common business and audit risk that needs to be managed. Many boards and management lack a basic understanding of prevention and detection controls that can significantly reduce it. Boards and management often rely on external auditors to detect risk, a misplaced strategy. Let’s look at how to manage the fraud risk. This session will:

  • Provide examples of recent frauds and discuss what can be learnt
  • Identify detection and prevention controls to mitigate fraud risk
  • Examine the external auditor’s role in fraud risk, and
  • Discuss how to effectively apply ASA 240 The Auditor’s Responsibilities Relating to Fraud in Audit of Financial Report to minimise audit risk.
