Fraud Risk Assessment: Building a Fraud Audit Program
Fraud Risk Assessment: Building a Fraud Audit Program
Leonard W. Vona

Billions of dollars a year are lost to business fraud. Is your business next?

Times are changing. At one time, it was not directly an auditor's responsibility to detect fraud, and even professional standards avoided the word "fraud." Today, it is accepted that the auditor has an obligation to respond to the risk of fraud. In Fraud Risk Assessment: Building a Fraud Audit Program, author and industry expert Leonard Vona reveals a fraud audit approach that helps you answer the following questions within your own organization:

• Who may be committing fraud within my organization?
• What type of fraud should I be looking for?
• Should fraud be viewed as an inherent risk?
• How might fraud opportunity impact internal controls?
• How might fraud be concealed within our business systems?
• How can we incorporate the fraud theory into our audit approach?
• How should we use fraud auditing to detect fraud?

Fraud Risk Management Guide
Committee of Sponsoring Organizations of the Treadway Commission

Issued by the Committee of Sponsoring Organizations of the Treadway Commission (COSO), this Fraud Risk Management Guide recommends ways in which governing boards, senior management, staff at all levels, and internal auditors can deter fraud in their organization.

It also includes examples of key program components and resources that organizations can use as a starting place to develop a fraud risk management program effectively and efficiently. Each organization needs to assess the degree of emphasis to place on fraud risk management based on the organization’s size and circumstances.

 

The guide also contains valuable information for users who are implementing a fraud risk management process. For example, it addresses fraud risk management roles and responsibilities, fraud risk management considerations for smaller organizations, data analytics employed as a part of fraud risk management, and managing fraud risk in the government environment.

Honest, Competent Government: The Promise of Performance Auditing
By: Mark Funkhouser

Trust in government is vital to the success of any community/society. Performance auditing can help increase citizens’ trust by promoting honest, competent government.

Honest, Competent Government: The Promise of Performance Auditing considers the key concepts underlying the various standards, tools, strategies, and practices of effective government. The report was sponsored by the Internal Audit Foundation as part of its commitment to strengthen government auditing globally.

Comprehensive research identified the following real-world challenges most frequently mentioned by government auditors:
- Achieving the desired level of audit impact
- Recruiting and retaining adequate numbers of skilled staff
- Managing the perceived tension between accountability and performance improvement
- Selecting audit topics that matter and writing timely and clear audit reports
- Developing better audit approaches and methods

The new profession of government performance auditing should be based on the idea that the point of the work is to serve the citizens. The problems we face are daunting-global warming, terrorism, providing adequate clean water, and controlling the spread of infectious disease.

All of us—elected officials, public administrators, newspaper editors, radio talk show hosts, business people, and civic leaders—need to care about building stronger, more effective governments and government audit agencies.

Internal Audit Quality - Developing A Quality Assurance and Improvement Program
Internal Audit Quality - Developing A Quality Assurance and Improvement Program
Sally-Anne Pitt

Internal Audit Quality is an essential resource because organizations increasingly see the value that high-quality internal audit can offer. Organizations across sectors are beginning to recognize how crucial it is to have an excellent internal audit function. Demonstrating that professional standards are met and improving the value that internal audit delivers is now more important than ever.

Internal Audit Quality comprehensively addresses the Institute of Internal Auditors' (IIA) International Standards for the Professional Practice of Internal Auditing. With all eyes on internal audit, you need to understand stakeholder expectations and communicate success measures that demonstrate quality.

The goal of Internal Audit Quality is to assist chief audit executives and internal auditors with embedding quality into all elements of internal audit, from strategic and operational planning down to day-to-day tasks. It provides a framework for developing a Quality Assurance and Improvement Program (QAIP) that simplifies and strengthens the internal assessment process. You will learn how to design internal audit processes to best meet the needs of your organization and to embed performance assessment into daily activities. By creating a system of ongoing quality assurance, you will be able to apply maturity models, balanced scorecards, and other techniques to meet your organization's need for a high-quality internal audit function.

Written by a global expert in audit quality, Internal Audit Quality contains resources for progressively enhancing the quality of internal audit:
• Techniques for understanding stakeholder expectations of quality and value
• Better practices and advice from global internal audit leaders
• Key performance indicators for measuring internal audit's success
• Processes for conforming with professional standards
• QAIP hints for embedding quality

Lessons Learned on the Audit Trail
Richard F. Chambers, CIA, QIAL, CGAP, CCSA, CRMA

Looking back on his nearly 40-year career, Richard Chambers shares many of the key events and insights gained during his impressive career. In Lessons Learned on the Audit Trail, his first book release, Chambers candidly shares:

  • Personal experiences that illustrate critical lessons every internal auditor will learn from.
  • Insights gleaned from his professional journey, which spans the government and corporate sectors and, since 2009, as president and CEO of The IIA.
  • Significant events and people encountered along the way, as well as valuable lessons learned.

“The paradox of what you pick up later in life is you have less time to apply those lessons,” Chambers says. “But if I can help just one internal auditor become better prepared for the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead in this profession, then my efforts writing this book will be well worth it.”

Chambers imparts life-based lessons on such vital topics as the importance of:

  • Building and sustaining relationships with internal audit stakeholders.
  • Demonstrating value.
  • Deploying risk-based audit planning and the dynamic nature of risk.
  • Achieving and sustaining a “seat at the table.”
Managing Risk in Uncertain Times: Leveraging COSO’S New ERM Framework
Paul J. Sobel, CIA, QIAL, CRMA

Successful organizations figure out ways to effectively manage their risks to thrive in an uncertain and rapidly changing world. Some rely on the experience and business savvy of their leaders; many others leverage a more disciplined approach, commonly referred to as enterprise risk management (ERM).

 

In 2014, the Committee of Sponsoring Organizations of the Treadway Commission (COSO) announced commencement of an update to its 2004 ERM framework Enterprise Risk Management – Integrated Framework. The new framework, published in September 2017, is titled Enterprise Risk Management – Integrating with Strategy and Performance. Designed to help organizations better pursue opportunities and manage threats, the update:

  • Recognizes the importance of strategy and entity performance as the central consideration for risk management.
  • Better distinguishes between internal controls and ERM.
  • Positions ERM as an integral part of decision making.

 

Throughout this book, author Paul Sobel provides implications for internal auditors or risk managers, and sometimes both. These implications will help them understand the new framework and provide examples of how they can be an integral part of helping their organizations successfully manage risk in uncertain times.
