Course overview
The use of technology to facilitate real-time, or synchronous, and ‘constantly ongoing’ audits and other assurance engagements, is mind-blowing, to say the least.

In this live CPD event, we look at how assurance-related technology has impacted the audit and assurance profession thus far, and whether this impact has actually led to improved audit accuracy and reliability.

Can artificial intelligence (AI) replace the auditor’s intuition and experience when it gets to the provision of audit opinions, and is it even meant to? How can auditors of large, medium, and smaller entities benefit from the use of technological advances in audit programmes and other related software, and more importantly, pass on the benefits of such to their clients? For all these, and more, why not join our live CPD event? In joining us, you will also develop the following professional competencies:
