IIA Memphis Chapter Annual Students/Professional Development Day


Professional Track Training will cover:

Fraud Seminar – Raise The Red Flag

The topic of fraud — whether it relates to awareness and prevention techniques, fraud auditing, recent frauds in corporate America, or the criminal mind — continue to be on the radar of investors, shareholders, and regulators. Although a recent fraud survey by Kroll Advisory found that the proportion of companies that suffered an incident declined from 75% last year to 61% in the current survey, it is acknowledged that fraud is anything but defeated.  In addition, with ongoing technological advances in IT infrastructure, new and emerging fraud methods are continually being identified.

Auditors are not expected to have the specialty expertise of forensic investigators, but they should have adequate knowledge of the aspects of fraud and maintain a skeptical mind when it comes to reviewing potential violations. Like internal controls, the economy, and business strategy, fraud continues to evolve and auditors must stay abreast of its root causes and suggested mitigation and investigation techniques. Whether you are part of a large internal audit group or a small internal audit group, it is important for all audit professionals to understand processes that could involve fraud.

This seminar will review concepts that will be outlined within “Raise The Red Flag” sponsored by the Institute of Internal Auditors Research Foundation.   The book is being authored by Lynn Fountain CGMA, CRMA and CPA certificate holder. Lynn has worked as a CAE for two international companies and has significant experience in evaluating and investigating fraud including a $13M vendor fraud that involved working with the FBI and resulted in ultimate indictments of the vendors and charges levied against 20 internal employees

One Day Seminar Outline

This course will cover many important aspects that internal auditors should ensure are well understood and in place prior to embarking on any type of fraud work. We will evaluate elements that relate to the psychology of fraud and how that impacts the control consciousness of the corporate culture.  We will also discuss the role of management as the “moral compass” for the organization and the importance of their role in fraud prevention programs. We will utilize a Fraud IQ test to examine participant’s fraud awareness knowledge and the sufficiency of their anti-fraud program.  This session will also involve role play.  Other learning objectives include:

  • Evaluating the effectiveness of your organization’s anti-fraud program
  • Examine the psychology of white collar fraud and its connection to the fraud triangle and fraud diamond.
  • Evaluate the IPPF Framework and executing the Auditor’s responsibility for fraud processes.
  • Employing COSO 2013 towards fraud prevention, detection and evaluation
  • Interviewing and investigation techniques for auditors when evaluating potential fraudulent situations.
  • Considerations for reporting procedures when fraud is identified.
