Auditing Using COSO

The Dallas Chapter of the IIA has not recently offered seminars on interviewing and/or interrogation techniques. As a service to our members, we have negotiated with Reid & Associates to offer a discounted fee for their 3-day and 4-day courses in Dallas during the week of January 27, 2004.
John E. Reid & Associates has been conducting training seminars on The Reid Technique of Interviewing and Interrogation since 1974, and have trained over 300,000 investigators in the art of interviewing and interrogation. In the world of fraud investigation professionals, the Reid Technique is considered the cream of the crop and is now the most widely used approach to question subjects in the world.
The 3-day training seminar features a discussion of three primary topics: Behavior Symptom Analysis (the verbal and nonverbal behavioral characteristics which can be used to distinguish a truthful person from a deceptive individual); the Behavior Analysis Interview (a non-accusatory interview process utilizing both investigative and behavior provoking questions); and, The Reid Nine Steps of Interrogation. The 4-day seminar consists of our 3 day regular seminar followed by our 1 day advanced seminar. The advanced program focuses on developing interrogation strategies, including how to psychologically profile subjects for the interrogation; how to handle defiant suspects; how to effectively use bonding statements; and, how to address such situations as juvenile interrogations and interrogations which focus on guilty knowledge.
The 3-day training session is $395 per person (a savings of $155 per person).
More information and register at: http://www.reid.com.
To receive your reduced fee, you must register using the Dallas IIA Preferred Association Number A2036.
Last year, the “Almost Free” seminar was so good, you asked for a follow-up.
Day 1: "Enterprise Network Security for Secure Electronic
This course is designed for internal auditors who desire to review the company’s intranet, extranet and Internet security architecture.
Day 2: "Hands-On"
Option 1 is "Statistical Sampling Made Easy." The SOX Act reflects the resurgence of internal control testing. Dr. Dan can and does make ‘stat’ sampling funny and understandable.
You can select Option 2, which is "Advanced Features of Excel and Advanced Analytics." Excel is packed with an armada of audit optimizing techniques, which can reduce audit cycle time while increasing audit findings. Kim Kneer will demonstrate that you should be able to do more with Excel than just sum and average.
Space is limited for Day 2 since it is “hands-on.”

This first semester of the new EIAP program was a complete success with the concluding event of the December 9 Dallas Chapter IIA meeting. Our kickoff reception at the new School of Management in November was attended by more than 100 people. I would also like to thank all of the guest speakers for the Internal Audit class this past semester and look forward to this next semester as we continue to enhance the program.
Some of the next semester events include: a recruiting week in February for interns and full time auditors, a number of company visits to internal audit groups, additional audits with the UTD audit group, sponsored audit projects and planning for various audit seminars. If your company is interested in participating in any of these activities, please contact Mark Salamasick at 972-883-4729.
As we enter our second semester with a number of events and activities planned around the Student IIA Chapter, one activity that the student chapter will take on is the establishment of a comprehensive Internal Audit library that will be available for checkout to Chapter members. Most of the IIA Research Foundation publications will be available along with much of the material available through IIA Educational Products. The library will be housed in the Student Chapter office and more about the checkout process will be available in February’s newsletter.
The new EIAP is also designed to meet the needs of those employees
transferring from other areas of the company to an internal audit role. The
program also encourages audit practitioners who want to get current on audit
techniques and prepare for the CIA exam. If you have interest in such a
program please contact Mark Salamasick at 972-883-4729 or to learn more
about the program visit
http://citm.utdallas.edu/eiap. The Internal Audit class is offered this
spring semester on Thursday evenings.
The Research Foundation is currently conducting an E-Commerce Control and Risk Analysis Survey. This survey relates to a project that is being conducted for the Institute of Internal Auditors Research Foundation. The focus of the project is on identifying the key risk factors involved with B2B e-commerce and understanding the risks that an organization inherits via its relationships with a given business partner. Your feedback via this survey is extremely important to the project. It should take no longer than 15-20 minutes to complete this survey and your efforts will contribute to the success of this research project and to further the understanding of auditors internationally as to key e-commerce risk factors. The link to the survey is http://www.gain2.org/ecommerce.
It's time again for the survey to determine which IIA Dallas Chapter members have submitted articles or spoken in December or earlier if not previously reported. Each speaking engagement on internal auditing that a Dallas Chapter member completes will earn the Chapter 1 credit per CPD hour. Each full article, Roundtable article, Fraud Finding, etc. submitted that meets basic editorial guidelines will earn 5 credits. For each full article published 20 credits are earned. Each internal audit related article published in any other trade or professional journal that is authored by a chapter member is 5 credits.
To report your writing and speaking go to http://dallasiia.org/Speaking.htm and complete the provided form by January 15, 2004. Contact Magdalena Kovats (972-389-3344 or email@example.com) if you have any questions.
