About the course
How do you make sure bad things don’t happen? Controls! In this workshop, learn how to define risks and apply controls to mitigate the risks – without creating a burdensome bureaucracy.
The 2013 version of the COSO model will guide our work. We will work through a case study relevant to the participants.
At the conclusion of this course, participants will be able to:
- Define inherent risks of chosen activities;
- Mitigate risks with layers of controls;
- Identify and strengthen key controls;
- Document controls to satisfy regulators and auditors;
- Distinguish between preventative, corrective, and detective controls;
- Describe the COSO model and the Green Book and how to use them; and,
- Recognize excessive and unnecessary controls that consume resources and slow decision making.
