In this economic context, information has become the key resource for being competitive. It represents a value for the entities and for the society in general. It highly contributes to achieving their goals. In this article we aim to provide a synthesis of the literature on the risks encountered during the financial audit activity. The research presents a general and documented approach to the risk assessment issued by the financial auditors. Starting from the method of the audit risk assessment provided by the International Auditing Standards, the main risk factors were analyzed.
