COSO 2013: The Sequel Training Seminar

A Practical Approach to COSO 2013

The COSO Committee's "Internal Control - Integrated Framework" (ICIF) is one of the accepted standards for implementing and assessing a system of internal controls for companies which are subject to SEC reporting. This framework has also proven to be a useful approach to internal controls in many different organizations that do not have a SEC compliance requirement.

This CPE seminar covers the principles-based COSO approach to a system of internal controls. COSO 2013 defines internal controls as being within five components, seventeen principles with eighty-seven points of focus. The education process covers the interrelationships presented within the COSO framework and how to approach the classification of controls within the framework.

Corporate Compliance Seminars has been involved in the design, implementation and assessment of internal controls for over 20 years. We have conducted 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 taught by auditors and business directors who understand the daily challenges of compliance.

Unlike other CPE seminars, ours takes the ICIF model and its principles "out of the clouds" and down to "ground zero". We "harden up" the "soft controls" by presenting tangible, auditable evidence of the COSO processes. You will able to apply the COSO updates to specific methods of improvement for your control and compliance program. You will increase your personal value and the value of your compliance processes. This seminar will start the process of positioning an organization to comply with Sarbanes-Oxley (SOX) Sections 302 and 404.

Our 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 controls that are consistent with the COSO 2013 Framework. It covers the Who - What - Why - Where - How to Control. We look at the principles-based approach presented by the COSO Components, Principles and Points of Focus.

This CPE seminar is for business professionals. Attendees are not required to have a detailed knowledge of operations, risks, controls, auditing, compliance or the COSO framework. However, by the end of the class, you will absorb an understanding of these areas, as well as how to apply the updated COSO controls and principles to your organization and your audits.
