Internal Controls for SOX and COSO 2013 Compliance

The Committee of Sponsoring Organizations of the Treadway Commission (COSO) has finished updating the "Internal Control Integrated Framework (ICIF). It has released four volumes of new documentation. The new guidance is slated to go into effect for all year-ends after December 15, 2014.

You can purchase the COSO documents from the AICPA Book Store. To purchase click here.

This training seminar covers the best practices for establishing and sustaining internal control for any organization including public companies under Sarbanes-Oxley (SOX). This one-day seminar includes sustaining SOX compliance and the latest guidance from the SEC, PCAOB, COSO and COBIT.

This training seminar is one of several seminars and workshops we present concerning compliance with the Sarbanes-Oxley Act. This seminar provides a timely, one-day summary designed for controllers, C-level executives, finance managers, attorneys, IT professionals, CPAs, auditors and department heads. Learn how organizations can create and sustain internal control over financial reporting (ICFR). Your goal may be to comply with Sarbanes-Oxley Section 404 or to sustain your internal controls as a "Best Practice" without breaking your budget. Improve your situation by having a comprehensive set of internal controls!

Cost of this seminar is $695 per attendee. Each attendee will receive 8 hours of CPE credit. To reserve your space click on the Sign-up Now and fill out a registration form and use a Buy Now Button to pay the fees.

Benefits of Attending

The basic benefit from this seminar is coming away with an understanding how a sustainable internal control framework mitigates risks to the continued health of the organization.

Sustainable internal control frameworks deliver to an organization: accountable governance, increasingly effective operations, highly reliable financial reporting, and sector-leading compliance programs. The Internal Auditors' (IIA) Research Foundation details the significant benefits from internal control improvements brought about by Section 404 of Sarbanes-Oxley:

- It added structure in the year-end closing process and recording of journal entries, resulting in recognition of the additional complexity in these areas.

- It increased anti-fraud activities, including defined processes, which include responsibility for follow-up.

- It improved the documentation of controls and control processes evaluation.

- It improved the definition of controls across the organization, including the crucial relationship between these controls and risk.

- It spurred a return to the foundation of basic controls (e.g., segregation of duties, periodic reconciliation of accounts, and authorization processes) that had eroded as organizations downsized or consolidated operations in order to drive costs down and remain competitive.

This seminar provides a complete overview of a sustainable internal control framework. This knowledge can be used by organizations to derive additional value from the improvement of their internal control framework. The value is created by leveraging the knowledge base built during the assessment process, documentation development, controls testing and the relationships defined across governance processes and business operations to create measurable value.

Three areas of particular focus in the seminar are value enhancement of governance controls, top-down risk management and keeping business process and activity controls in their proper context.
