Innovation, the digital audit, and the future of audit regulation

November 2018

Many industries, including the audit profession, are being transformed by new and emerging technologies. At the same time, the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (PCAOB) has undergone its own transformation, with five new board members and a new strategic plan. On October 3–4, 2018, West Audit Committee Network (WACN) members met in San Jose, CA, to discuss innovation in both the trucking industry and the audit profession, as well as new developments at the PCAOB and Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC).
