Description

All successful entities, regardless of nature, size, and complexity, must have a well-designed and effectively operating system of internal controls over reliable financial reporting, in addition to managing other risks. This course will provide practical guidance on exactly what a sound system of internal controls “looks like” and the resulting impact on the reliability of financial statements, particularly for smaller entities. In addition, we will explore COSO’s 2013 Internal Control - Integrated Framework that is used to better manage the unique and challenging risks of today’s entities.

Highlights

  • Explain the evolution of internal control concepts, culminating in the 2013 version of COSO’s Internal Control-Integrated Framework
  • Describe important internal control concepts related to evaluating the design, implementation, and operating effectiveness of internal control over reliable financial reporting
  • Be familiar with a more extensive enterprise-wide risk management approach guided by COSO’s Enterprise Risk Management
  • Be familiar with practical implementation tips and examples
