The ACL Services has slated a three-day conference inviting chief audit executives to discuss and share their thoughts on changes in how internal audit serves its purpose and on fighting fraudsters.

More than 700 top executives in the audit industry are expected to attend the 2011 Institute of Internal Auditors’ (IIA) General Audit Management (GAM) conference come March 14 in Las Vegas, with ACL’s customer solutions director Steve Biskie who will present case studies about how audit firms have evolved in using analytics.

Biskie, who has several experiences as a speaker tackling the most critical issues of audit, risks, controls and leveraging technology for businesses, will focus on the composition of people, process, and technology in auditing firms and how to avoid dangerous zones of internal audit.

Moreover, the conference will provide participants an insight into how a strong analytic strategy helps in complying with the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, managing risks, and detecting fraud.

The conference was set out 32 years ago by the IIA, and has since been offering presentations of key players in the industry to emphasize the importance of internal audit.

Biskie said the upcoming conference will provide chief audit executives with “lively discussions on the challenges and opportunities” available to the audit industry based on experiences of leading internal audit officers from different organizations.

Similarly, the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board sets a meeting on March 22 at its Washington office for the presentation of the Office of the Chief Auditor informing users of financial statements such as investors and other stakeholders about the possible changes in the model of internal audit report.
