Historically, the realm of controls monitoring has been the domain of the audit team or external auditors. However, recently, many finance organizations and more specifically CFOs, have been tasked with not just managing and reporting the company's financial position but also imposing systems and procedures to mitigate risk. Join us in reviewing this changing landscape and providing some insight on how organizations are addressing these requirements with a Continuous Controls Monitoring solution.

In this webinar, we will explore the following topics:

  • COSO 2013 definition and interpretations by the industry
  • Benefits of adopting COSO 2013
  • Relation to industry guidance and standards (COBIT, FFIEC, PCAOB, SEC, SSAE 16)
  • Implementation approach – proven practices and pitfalls
