Government Fraud & Abuse: How Reporters Find It Before Auditors

Description

*Qualifies for Yellow Book CPE credit*

"Newspaper Materiality"... It's not pretty when the media splashes a fraud on the front page that CPAs missed. Sallah is a Pulitzer Prize winning investigative reporter for the Miami Herald. He will provide a detailed analysis of major financial fraud and abuse cases and show you how and why something `immaterial' often leads to finding material fraud.

This event may be a rebroadcast of a live event and the instructor will be available to answer your questions either during or after the event.
