Why Should You Attend:
The new COSO framework was released in May 2013. Original compliance date was is set as December 2014. Many companies are still working towards compliance. This will turn up the focus on how its guidance should be used by companies and auditors when evaluating processes for Sarbanes-Oxley and other control requirements. Key aspects have been added to mandate knowledge of business and regulatory changes as well as an increased focus on information technology and its controls. It is imperative that management, compliance professionals, legal professionals and audit professionals all understand the roles and responsibilities incumbent upon them when it relates to internal control. It is also imperative that management learn and accept their critical role as it relates to the management and monitoring of internal controls.
The impending release of the new COSO Framework clearly outlines the importance of understanding all aspects of internal control and ensuring those elements are properly working together in an effective manner. All individuals involved in oversight, management, monitoring and auditing processes within an organization will need to heighten their awareness of basic controls and their linkage to corporate strategies and regulatory and business requirements.

In today’s business world, the term, internal control, is assumed to be a well-known and understood concept. Yet, with all the regulations, attention and focus on the issue, control gaps continue to pervade processes and result in a wide array of business failures and issues. The issue has come to the forefront as the COSO Board is about to release the revised version of the COSO 1992 internal control framework. Companies who indicate they utilize the COSO framework for their evaluation processes will be expected to employ the concepts imbedded in the current draft. Prior to executing on that task, management must re-evaluate their position on internal controls and how they employ the roles and responsibilities related to internal control within their environments. This may be a significant task for many companies and will include re-evaluation of their current compliance and internal audit programs as well as the organizational alignment of these functions.
