New Webinar: What Is Your Role? When Accounting Policy Meets ICFR
Sign up for the latest complimentary Anti-Fraud Collaboration webinar, What Is Your Role? When Accounting Policy Meets ICFR to improve internal controls and implement effective accounting policies to combat fraud and reduce the number of financial restatements.
This webcast, hosted by the Anti-Fraud Collaboration, highlights leading-practice recommendations from top company executives, corporate directors, and auditors. The webcast also outlines the importance of creating accounting policies and controls, crafted through risk-based evaluations, that can be easily understood by nonaccountants. Expanding on insights contained in a 2017 Anti-Fraud Collaboration report, Addressing Challenges for Highly Subjective and Complex Accounting Areas, the webcast's panelists include experts from across the financial reporting supply chain.
Join your peers on Tuesday, July 11, from 1:00–2:30 p.m. ET as this expert panel, moderated by the Center for Audit Quality’s Executive Director Cindy Fornelli, discusses how successful companies utilize strong accounting policies to deter and detect fraud while providing actionable recommendations that each supply chain member can bring to their organizations. Hear directly from Brian T. Croteau, partner at PricewaterhouseCoopers; MetLife’s chief auditor R. Karl Erhardt; President and CEO of The Hopgood Group, Suzanne Hopgood; and American Express corporate controller Linda Zukauckas.
Webinar participants will explore expanded concepts based on the findings in the Anti-Fraud Collaboration recently released report which compiles leading-practice recommendations from dozens of company executives, corporate directors, and auditors who attended two 2016 workshops to discuss ways to help deter fraud and enhance financial reporting. Taken together, these insights illuminate and underscore how improved accounting policies and internal controls related to highly subjective and complex accounting areas are crucial for halting financial reporting fraud and reducing the amount of restatements.
