We will cut through complicated jargon of professional standards to reveal plan-English insights. We will first tackle the topic of ethics and explore practical new insights from the AICPA's Code of Professional Conduct. We will then focus on tools to enhance your audit and review engagements using analytical procedure applications and data analysis tools.
