Description

Never have the benefits, and related risks, of utilizing new technology been greater for those in the accounting profession. From Artificial Intelligence (AI), Robotic Process Automation(RPA), and Audit Data Analytics (ADA) to cloud-based software solutions, our clients’ technology landscape is rapidly changing. Accordingly, we, as accounting professionals, need to be on the forefront of these changes, including having a firm understanding of the risks associated with the use of these tools. In this course, we’ll review these trends, highlight new and emerging products, and focus on cyber-security risks and best practices that will allow accounting professionals to help our clients navigate these exciting but challenging times. Plus, we’ll review the newly issued guidance on audit evidence found in SAS 142, which guides our use of technology on our professional engagements.

Highlights

  • Data-driven decision making processes
  • Top technology trends and related risks, including cloud computing, AI, RPA, and blockchain applications
  • Common IT security risks and controls
  • Requirements of SAS 142
  • Use of analytical procedures on professional engagements
