Auditing in the Time of COVID-19

As the COVID-19 virus spreads, responsible organizations recognize that their employees need to work remotely. But, how do you ensure your audit staff follow auditing standards while auditing remotely?

Attend this webcast as experts Bob Dohrer, AICPA Chief Auditor; Bob Durak, Director, Audit & Accounting Technical Services at the CPEA; and Dan Knoll, Senior Director - Accounting Standards at the AICPA, detail out what to consider if your audit client asks you and your staff to remote audit. We will address best practices to ensure your audit follows the standards, especially as it relates to accounting areas that need extra attention, fraud interviews, internal control and risk assessment, and documentation. We will also cover items related to peer review.

Auditing practitioners will be moderating the webcast to answer your questions throughout the event! Join us as we navigate auditing in this new world of COVID-19.
