Technology is constantly changing and with that change a need arises to reevaluate how we approach auditing. We are seeing more electronic transaction documentation and less paper. Clients want more data analysis and conclusions on the data. In order to stay ahead of this evolution, we need to understand and develop new techniques in auditing and learn how to gain, understand and interrogate data.
