Presentation Title: “Examination of Electronic Documents”

Abstract: The days of examining documents by methods described by Osborn are gone. Well, maybe not completely gone. Yet as document examiners we receive documents in a form never conceived by Osborn, Harrison, Hilton, and others. We often receive documents in electronic form. These documents may have been created by a digital microscope, word processing software, a digital scanner, the photocopy machine, or other means.

As document examiners, we must keep up with technology to examine all types of documents. This presentation focuses on examination of electronic documents including e-mail, PDF, JPEG, TIFF, Microsoft Word®, digital camera images, and others. Methods of determining a whether document has been electronically altered are presented.

Join us for a wonderful presentation of “Examination of Electronic Documentson October 19th, 2017 at 6:00pm!!!

This eye-opening and invaluable discussion will give even seasoned auditors a new perspective, and will help improve the audit experience not only for clients, but also dramatically reduce problems with Certification Body internal review committees and Accreditation Bodies.
As a clinic participant, you will:
The “angle of perception” used by auditors, and how to expand it using the “missing senses” to soak up evidence like a sponge.
Learn how auditees hide nonconformities in plain view, based on predicted auditor behavior.
Never again have your audit findings challenged because of weak evidence.
