      Continuous Auditing & Monitoring Training Seminar
      About this Event
      Continuous monitoring and auditing involves performing control and risk assessments on a frequent basis, if not virtually in real-time. As technology has improved there has been an increased adoption of continuous auditing as a vital monitoring tool. This seminar walks through the process of continuous auditing from start to finish and prepares you to create your own customized continuous audit program.

      This comprehensive seminar provides unique training on how to design, implement and improve a continuous auditing and monitoring approach for auditors. We present examples from our clients and specific controls to establish for monitoring on a regular basis. This continuous approach provides more timely assessment of the operation of internal controls.

      Continuous auditing has changed the internal auditing paradigm from periodic reviews of a small sample of transactions to ongoing audit testing of volumes of transactions. This CPE seminar focuses on identifying what must be done to make effective use of information technology in support of continuous auditing.

      This timely, one-day CPE seminar is designed for internal audit management, compliance managers, controllers, CFO's and others who have to create value within the internal audit function.
