According to Mr. Handoko Tomo, Senior Partner of Moores Rowland Indonesia, although the current world is moving towards block chains, the role of an auditor will not be replaced. He said that in the auditing process, an auditor would be possibly facilitated by the assistance of computerized systems. However, the decisions, recommendations, as well as sensitivity from an auditor remain a high necessity.
In addition, the participants received guidance on steps to become a successful auditor in the future. Willingness to learn new things and resilience is one of the necessary abilities that an auditor should have.
