World Class Enterprise Risk Management Seminar

A Practical Approach to ERM

"Effective risk management allows an organization to have the confidence to take risks."

View latest COSO annoucements.

The Committee of Sponsoring Organizations of the Treadway Commission (COSO) has unveiled an update to its Enterprise Risk Management - Integrated Framework and is seeking public comment of the proposal, from June 15 through Sept. 30. The update, Enterprise Risk Management - Aligning Risk with Strategy and Performance, is designed to address the needs of all organizations to improve their approach to managing new and existing risks as a way to help create, preserve, sustain, and realize value.

Corporate Compliance Seminars' professionals have been involved in the design, implementation and assessment of risks for over 20 years. We have conducted assessments, audits and trained thousands of auditors, compliance professionals, IT personnel, executives and Audit Committees in the "textbook" and real-world approaches to managing risk. Our CPE seminars are instructed by auditors and business directors who understand the daily challenges of ERM.

Our CPE seminars are as entertaining as they are informative. Sit back and enjoy; be engaged and educated in a casual atmosphere of information exchange. We will not bore you!

This eight-hour CPE course provides you with a more in-depth look at how to implement an ERM program. We will look at the draft of the COSO ERM update.

This CPE seminar is for experienced business professionals. Attendees are required to have a detailed knowledge of the organizaiton's business objectives.
