Event Description

Computer Assisted Audit Techniques (CAATs) allow you as an auditor to process great volumes of data. This may lead to the discovery of indications of fraud and other irregularities hidden in the jungle of numbers and spreadsheets or even help to identify benchmarks in value for money audits.
