Data Mining Found WorldCom Mess

Auditors should perform all of the analytics themselves, and they must be educated in fraud detection and introduced to data mining techniques. When the concept of data mining is brought up, audit managers cringe and argue that they cannot afford to employ statisticians.

However, while there is data mining software that requires a statistician’s level of expertise (such as IBM’s Intelligent Miner), there also are products, such as WizSoft Inc., that can be employed by most auditors who are acquainted with the fundamentals of Microsoft Office and who are curious as to why they obtained their audit results.
