Course Developer

This seminar provides practical guidance for those involved with internal control responsibilities (auditing, monitoring, implementing, etc.) in adapting the updated COSO Internal Control Framework to small and medium-sized entities. Internal control concepts are applicable to every entity, regardless of size. However, there is no “one size fits all” set of rules that can be applied to all entities. Often times the internal control “best practices” that have evolved over time are based upon large entity environments and these “best practices” are not necessarily relevant to small and medium-sized entities. Learn some best practices for designing, implementing, monitoring, evaluating, and auditing cost-effective internal controls for small and medium-sized entities.

Designed For

Accountants, auditors, managers, and others who are responsible for implementing, monitoring, evaluating, auditing and designing cost-effective internal controls for small and medium-sized entities.

  • Recognize the risks associated with the failure to implement internal controls and recall inexpensive compensating controls that could decrease these risks
