Whitman Also Points The Finger At Deloitte
In an interview with CNBC, Whitman also pointed the finger at accounting giant Deloitte, Autonomy's accounting firm that has "categorically" denied it had any knowledge of accounting improprieties at Autonomy. "Well obviously with 20/20 hindsight we are disappointed by this news," she said. "What I will tell you is our due diligence was thorough. We relied on audited financials by Deloitte, not exactly Brand X accounting firm, and that is what you do when you are on a board; you rely on the recommendations of management and the financials audited by a legitimate financial accounting firm."
