  1. Define and list three “rogue employees”. Also provide examples of why their actions made them rogue employees. In addition, briefly explain the meaning and use of the “chutzpah defense.”

  6. Briefly describe in your own words the key recommendations found in the COSO Framework.
  7. Review the auditor’s role in discovering fraud under SAS 82 (Statement on Auditing Standards) and its subsequent replacement by SAS 99. Briefly describe the steps an auditor would take in obtaining, identifying, and assessing fraud risks per SAS 99. Provide some details related to each step of the process. Then decide whether or not auditors view themselves as responsible for discovering all fraudulent activities within an organization. Please explain your answer. Here is a link to SAS 99.
  8. The NYSE and NASDAQ both require listed companies to have robust audit committees. Briefly explain the requirements of the audit committee and comment on what is meant by a “financial expert.”

Section 404 of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002 is considered by many to be the most costly and yet least understood section of the Act (see page 45 of the PDF in the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002 link). PCAOB’s Audit Standard No. 5 provides greater guidance on Section 404 of Sarbanes-Oxley.
