Introduction

Regardless of whether (or when) professional standards change, a new specialization in forensic audit has grown, fuled in part by The Sarbanes-Oxley Act's focus on internal control, certification of financial statements and increased criminal penalities for securities fraud. Organizations are increasingly turning to forensic auditors to investigate identified or suspected fraud; provide evidence of how it was perpetrated and by whom, and assist in quantifying damages for insurance recovery or litigation. Organizations are also using forensic audit  services proactively, to supplement their primary auditor by providing a "fresh look".
