Mark Your Calendar: Lessons from SAS 99 Webinar
Almost as long as there has been business, there has been fraud. Today’s regulatory environment, especially in relation to Section 404, makes it even more critical that public companies of all sizes recognize and manage risk more effectively. On Thursday, January 19, 2006, at 2:00 p.m. Eastern, Dr. Timothy Hedley of KPMG Forensic joins The 404 Institute’s Lawrence Raff for an hour-long webinar covering the lessons learned from SAS 99 – Consideration of Fraud in a Financial Statement Audit.
The latest webinar from The 404 Institute,An Auditor's Perspective: A Look at Fraud Risk and Lessons from SAS 99, will include a 30 to 45 minute discussion followed by a brief question-and-answer session. Dr. Hedley will discuss fraud risk management and key issues relating to SAS 99 from an auditor’s point of view. Raff will describe findings from the latest Integrity Survey 2005-2006 from KPMG.
Voice of the Editor
Which isn’t completely true. I mean, occasionally I drop by when I manage to sneak out of the nonstop frat party over at Going Concern, but I’m mostly a wallflower over there. I’m happy to say that I’ve been given express permission (or explicit orders, if you like) to wander over here to AccountingWEB more often.
Why is that, you might ask? My job is to replace the irreplaceable Gail Perry as Editor-in-Chief. What does that mean? I don’t really know! I think it’ll be fun getting a feel for things, throwing in my own thoughts here and there, and listening to the discussions you’re having about the accounting profession.
