Topic Background:

Much has changed since 1992 when the COSO framework was originally issued; market globalization has become the norm. Expectations for governance and risk management have soared in the wake of corporate scandals such as Enron and WorldCom. And in addition, laws, regulations and standards for conducting business have increased exponentially.

While the 2013 COSO framework retains the core components you are familiar with there is an increased focus on non-financial controls and reporting objectives. No longer is it acceptable to ignore operations in regards to the COSO framework. Today, the concepts and principals of COSO 2013 must be applied across the entire organization. However, applying these concepts across operations and compliance has proven to be very challenging for many organizations.
