COSO Compliance Training Academy- St Louis Park, MN

Friday, October 2, 2020, 4:00 PM - 10:00 PM

COSO Compliance Training Academy
About this Event
Focuses on the skills need by professionals working on COSO 2013 compliance programs

Our academy approach contains the relevant information which professionals will need to fulfill the "Internal Control Life Cycle" using the "top-down, risk-based" approach.

We teach the background knowledge sources, provide advice on how to conduct risk assessments, discuss scoping, and review how to plan the assessment of an internal control framework. Risk management activities are the key process to determine the requirement of the ICFR assessment program. The program deliverables should lead to management's opining on the status of the internal control framework in reference to the SEC reporting requirements.

We have created detailed workshop materials based on our experiences with the creation and validation of internal controls over financial reporting (ICFR).
