More data is stored electronically than ever before in history. For businesses, this can be financial data, operational data, marketing data, customer data, vendor listings, sales transactions, email correspondence. As a result, we are seeing an increased number of auditors and accountants turning to data analytics to investigate trends and outliers in the data, to help them detect fraud and quantify damages.
Spreadsheet tools are no longer good enough to tackle this type of task. We are equipped with the capability of handling large data sets and analyzing them, by using tools such as SQL, C#, Python, and VBA, as well as having the technical ability to construct and conduct valid and defensible statistical tests, perform analysis, and interpret other’s analyses.
This event provided cutting-edge information on new technology, and quality networking with other forensic accounting and valuation professionals, and an optimized strategy for the future.
