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.
