Introduction

Audits inspect internal control systems, ensuring they are sufficiently strong and working properly. An effective audit helps organizations achieve goals and objectives by measuring overall performance and productivity based on transactions and business records. Further, audits reduce risk and protect against fraud. Audits provide investors and shareholders with trusted information concerning financial statements and how well an organization is run.

Audits depend on the collection and analysis of data.  Many companies have plenty of data but little information. The ability to analyse data and interpret the findings is a critical skill. It enables us to make correct assertions, based on facts, and helps companies make the right decisions in complex situations. It also provides an audit trail and mitigates risk.

This GLOMACS Analytical and Auditing Skills training course equips trainees with the skills to extract secrets from data against tight deadlines and provides clear and consistent standards for analytical work.
