Course Description

Many organizations have gone through extensive efforts to comply with Sarbanes-Oxley and other internal control regulations to ensure accuracy in their financial statements. But financial statement controls cover only a small area of risk and often ignore the far greater risks resulting from weak operational and other financial controls. Accountants believe that COSO represents a means for developing internal controls to prevent and detect errors and fraudulent activities.  As described in its definition, however, it is a much more dynamic system used to achieve management’s goals of reliable financial reporting, effective and efficient operations, and compliance with applicable laws and regulations.

The COSO model can be applied to projects as broad as developing a plan for a new business to objectives as specific as reducing the cost of maintaining a business asset.  It can be applied to an entire entity, a department within the entity, a process performed by a department, or a specific transaction that is part of the process.

Major Topics Covered : 

  • Overview of COSO framework
  • 5 components of COSO framework : Control environment, Control activities, Information & Communication, Risk assessment and Monitoring
  • 17 principles supporting the components of COSO framework
