Add and remove keywords

  1. Use the chevron icon ( Expand chevron.svg ) to the left of a given risk score to expand it and reveal the control points it uses.
  2. Find one of the following keyword-based control points, then use the chevron icon ( Expand chevron.svg ) to the left of a given control point to expand it. 
    • Suspicious Keyword
    • Manual Entry
    • Complex instrument
  3. Select Edit to go to the control point's settings.
  4. Add and/or remove keywords as described below.

Add keywords

  1. Select Add keywords (located at the end of the existing list of keywords) then enter a new keyword or key phrase.
  2. Press the comma key or enter/return on your keyboard to add the word.
  3. When you are satisfied, select Done. You will go back to the Risk scores section.

Select Cancel to discard your unsaved changes and go back to the Risk scores section.

Note: Keywords are not case sensitive.

There is no limit to the number of keywords you can add.

Tip: You can conduct partial word searches on the Suspicious Keyword and Complex Instrument control points by add an asterisk ( * ) to the end of the word. For example, adding the keyword "adjust*" would return "adjustment," "adjusted," "adjusting," etc. Any keywords added to the Manual Entry control point settings do not require an asterisk, as it automatically searches for partial and exact matches.

Remove keywords

  1. Use the X icon to the right of a given keyword to remove it from the list. When a keyword is removed, MindBridge will not search for it.
  2. When you are satisfied, select Done. You will go back to the Risk scores section.

Select Cancel to discard your unsaved changes and go back to the Risk scores section.


Scenario

During previous audits of Highland Wilds, a particular type of transaction was flagged as being at high risk for misstatement. Details related to this type of transaction are contained in the memo field (such as a particular vendor, or type of transaction).

As part of the current year’s audit, keywords unique to that transaction type are added to the Suspicious Keyword control point settings. Using this method, transactions containing the defined keywords will be flagged as high risk, increasing the likelihood that they will be sampled.
