Special Investigations and Fraud Audits

Event: Special Investigations and Fraud Audits Workshop

Date: March 16-18, 2022

Venue: Hilton Hotel, Nairobi

Most Internal Auditors are involved in fraud audits and investigations. Their audit work involving fraud audits and investigations could be a rare occurrence and may require providing occasional support to professionals with primary responsibility to undertake investigations. Where the Internal Auditor is responsible for fraud-related work, it is important to have a good working knowledge of fraud-related investigations in order to lead or participate in their organization’s professional response. This workshop will explore what organizations need to undertake successful investigative responses and give insights on practical methods for mobilizing management, such as getting buy-in from the Executive and Board.

The workshop will focus on getting participants to understand the investigative process and provide specific guidance to assure investigations are effective. Participants will be exposed to investigative tools and techniques and appreciate how to avoid dangers associated with mishandling investigations.

The workshop will cover the following areas:

  • Appreciate the fundamental facts on fraud.
  • Identify red flags that indicate fraud may have been committed.
  • Understand the characteristics of fraud.
  • Appreciate fraud investigative process, those responsible for carrying out fraud investigations.
  • Understand the techniques used to commit fraud, and the various fraud schemes and scenarios.
  • Evaluate the indicators of fraud to determine whether further action is necessary or whether an investigation should be recommended.
  • Evaluate the effectiveness of controls to prevent or detect fraud.
  • Understand how to develop fraud response plans including key policies and investigation methodologies.
  • Explore how internal audit can investigate to improve failed controls when fraud has occurred.

The workshop will be held from March 16-18, 2022 at the Hilton Hotel, Nairobi. Charges are KES 40,000 and KES 45,000 exclusive of VAT for Members and Non-Members respectively. Members in attendance will earn 20 CPE Hours.

OnRisk Report 2021

In the 18 months since the COVID-19 pandemic first shuttered the world, organizations have learned to embrace the unexpected. Board members, C-suite executives, and chief audit executives — the key players in risk management — now know that low likelihood/high impact risks must be given greater consideration. This realization has jolted boards into greater awareness of risk management weaknesses, energized senior management to build more nimble and resilient organizations, and positioned internal audit to deliver broader value.
