What the issue is about

This issue will embrace the broad areas of fraud and forensics from corporate and internal audit perspectives. The growth of ERP usage in business information management, e-commerce (all facets), cloud storage and internet-as-service technologies have made current and future fraudulent reporting and corporate fraud by various entities and personnel more complex than before. Anti-money laundering (AML) is another important aspect of financial crimes where perpetrators make abundant use of information technology to hide the proceeds of crime. Although these topics are broad potential authors might have some cognate research directly relevant to the broadly defined community of auditors, researchers and professionals in the field. All research paradigms and methodologies including specific case studies are welcome as are short research notes on related developing issues of future research interest.

The special issue is aimed at the following topics:

  • Digital financial forensics
  • Various forensic tools and applications in fraud related matters
  • Fraudulent financial reporting and role of Enterprise Systems
  • Internal controls in Cloud processing and storage of financial/non-financial data
  • DSS used in fraud auditing of corporate malfeasance
  • Corporate espionage and role of information technology
  • Competitive intelligence and cloud computing
  • Organisational vulnerabilities, risk, and cyber crime
  • Use of various emerging technologies in fraud and forensic examinations
  • Artificial intelligence, neural networks, and fuzzy logic based applications to assist external/internal auditors
  • Corporate Corruption and Bribery in developing and developed nations
  • Use of Shell companies to launder proceeds of crime
  • Corporate Corruption vis a vis Tax Evasion
  • Financial Crimes in the Corporate and Public sectors

More about the special issue
