Master the Remote Audit (March 23, 2021, 10:00 AM - 12:00 PM CST)

People all around the world are now working from home, including audit professionals. Despite the change in work environment, auditors are still expected to deliver the same level of services in an audit as they would if they were on-site and must continue to comply with audit standards.
