Internal Control Best Practices for Small and Medium-Sized Entities (123-16)
Tell a Friend About This EventTell a Friend
 

This course 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.

Description 
This course 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. This course will show you some best practices for designing, implementing, monitoring, evaluating, and auditing cost-effective internal controls for small and medium-sized entities. Specific topics include:

  • The components of the updated COSO Internal Control Framework and related principles
  • Adapting the updated COSO internal control framework principles for small and medium-sized entities
  • Cost-effective controls that can be implemented in very small entities
  • Cost-effective transaction processing systems controls
  • IT and manual controls that can be implemented in a variety of processing environments

Objectives

  • Identify a variety of specific internal controls that can be implemented in a cost-effective manner for each component of the updated COSO Integrated Framework in both small and medium-sized entities and larger entities with decentralized operations.
  • Recall why a “one-size fits all best practices” approach might not be appropriate for many entities.
  • Recognize the risks associated with the failure to implement internal controls and recall inexpensive compensating controls that could decrease these risks.
  • Identify different IT and manual controls that should be present in a variety of small and medium-sized entities.
  • Recall mitigating controls when primary controls are not available.
