You were assigned to prepare a presentation on the auditor’s public responsibilities for the short seminar. Use the CTU library and the Internet to cover the following issues:
- Because auditors must act with integrity and prioritize their public responsibility, discuss the conflict between the auditor’s client confidentiality obligations and the auditor’s ethical standards to gain the public trust.
- Explain and discuss how the Dodd-Frank Act and the whistle-blower program can protect accountants and auditors.
- Discuss why it is important for auditors to show evidence that they followed the ethical and professional standards.
