The move to a largely remote environment throughout 2020 and 2021 has altered the way in which businesses conduct their accounting and auditing activities.  Changes were necessary to alter the way industry firms maintained their accounting, finance and risk functions while audit firms altered how they performed their assurance reviews of those activities.

Join experts from public accounting and industry peer firms as they share their insights, experiences and best practices as they navigated the virtual accounting and auditing landscape throughout the pandemic.

Topics will include:

  • Evolving audit process of virtual reviews and digital solutions
  • Industry best practices around maintaining a sound control structure in a remote setting
  • Experiences with PCAOB oversight of the audit industry to maintain quality control
