WB2768  |  Partner Virtual Events  |  Intermediate  |  Scheduled

Description

Numbers-and especially the digits within those numbers-can conceal a lot of information. Benford's Law is the key to unlocking that information. This session will explain what Benford's Law is, how it works, and how it can be used to reveal bogus information and made-up data. Accountants and auditors should understand how to use this valuable audit tool. But, if you attend this session, you must promise not to reveal the secret behind the technique to any fraud perpetrators.
