Topic: Forensic Report Writing

A forensic report that is accurate, complete and professionally drafted is key to enable users to act on the report, whether it be management for addressing culture and control weaknesses, to institute actions against suspects, or to make informed decisions.  A properly drafted report is also crucial to withstand scrutiny and cross-examination in dispute resolution forums.
