We'll explore how auditors can be misguided or fooled by adversarial accounting records or adversarial financial transactions. Recent discoveries in deep learning research revealed that learned models are vulnerable to adversarial examples, or a sample of slightly modified input data that intends to cause a human and/or machine to misclassify it. Such examples exhibit the potential to be dangerous because they could be specifically designed to misguide auditors or an accountant. Securing accounting information systems against such attacks can be difficult.
