Internal Control

Course Description

Essentially, there are few activities within an organization that are more important to its success than maintaining internal control. Internal auditing adds value to the organization, as it provides management with assurance that adequate controls are in place, that they working as intended, and that any failures are investigated and remedied in a timely manner. This course introduces learners to types of controls, and how to interpret internal control concepts and types of controls. It describes the impact of organizational culture on the overall control environment and identifies the impact of organizational culture on individual engagement risks and controls. Finally, learners will gain an understanding of how to use an internal control framework to examine the effectiveness and efficiency of internal controls, and to apply globally accepted internal control frameworks appropriate to the organization.
