Description :

As our stagnant economy lingers, auditors, accountants and managers are experiencing more pressure (and opportunities) to improve net income by reducing costs. However, fraud, waste, and abuse can have a negative impact on net income. This seminar will take a fresh look at how to evaluate existing financial and operating data to identify and eliminate unnecessary and inappropriate expenses and reduce the risk of fraud. Participants will examine accounting information on a disaggregated (below the surface) basis to perform the necessary analytics. The primary focus of this seminar is to reduce the incidents of fraud, waste, and abuse and detect the breakdowns within the internal control system.
