Assessing the Risk When Auditing Journal Entries can be Challenging
This topic lends itself well to data analytics.
In this webinar, we examined multiple metrics that contribute to the risk assessment of the individual postings as well as the accounts and employees concerned.
We also reviewed methods for combining the individual elements to arrive at risk scores for the purposes of ranking and detailed review. Risks based on dates, amounts, keywords, and top-line accounts was presented.
