IIA and Deloitte Team to Teach Fraud Control

The renewed focus on protecting stakeholder interests is the motivation for a new set fraud control seminars from the Institute of Internal Auditors and Deloitte.

IIA will roll out the nine-course program over the next two years. First up is a seminar on Fraud Awareness for Chief Audit Executive and Management offered in Palm Beach in August and Las Vegas in November.

Topics include fraud trends, using technology to detect fraud, maximizing benefits of internal fraud investigations, fraud risk management capabilities and defining a COSO-consistent approach for fraud risk management (COSO being the Committee of Sponsoring Organizations of the Treadway Commission).

Coming up in 2009, IIA will offer: Developing a Fraud Risk Management Program; Advanced Fraud Auditing Using Computer-Assisted Techniques; and Introduction to Fraud Auditing.

Webinars round out the entire series of educational offerings, with selected content also offered as half-day sessions for audit committees.
