Fraud Detection in Auditing

December 2, 2019

Disguising corporate crime is becoming increasingly difficult for companies. Due to increasing digitalization and the increased use of mass data analyses, auditors can collect and analyze all relevant data from accounting and inventory management. On the one hand, this full survey makes it possible to uncover errors that would not be found in a sample and, on the other hand, to link data in order to better question the findings and check its plausibility.

This exciting and up-to-date topic was presented by employees from LeitnerLeitner as part of a guest lecture. Students of the Bachelors’ program in Financial Management were given the opportunity to familiarize themselves with the latest analysis tools and to ask questions about current topics and challenges in auditing. The guest lecture was completed with an outlook on the possible future, where the daily business of companies and its auditing will go hand in hand.
