Preventing and Detecting Financial Fraud: Whose Job Is It? 

This May 2015 video interview transcription is from SmartPros Ltd.'s popular Financial Management Network (FMN)TM CPE Series.  The good news in recent years has been the economy's emergence from recession. The bad news, however, is that during such an economic upturn the pressure to achieve spectacular financial results increases. Here, Attorney Michael R. Young, a partner with Willkie Farr & Gallagher LLP, reminds you - as accountants and auditors - what you can and must do to prevent and detect financial fraud. In addition, he assesses the recent expansion of audit committee responsibility to include the oversight of risk management.
