Process Risk & Internal Control

An effective internal control system is vital to a healthy firm who is focused on achieving goals, mitigating risk and delivering high quality.

A complete, efficient and effective internal control system is vital...

Internal control is designed to provide reasonable assurance regarding the achievement of objectives related to operations, reporting and compliance. It reduces risks linked to the effectivity of operational activities, the trustworthiness of financial and managerial reports and the compliance with both internal procedures and external regulation and legal obligations.

With the implementation of the U.S. Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002, which requires CEOs and CFOs of SEC listed companies to make periodic certifications on whether financial statements are true, complete and fairly stated, internal control became an important part of the organizational agenda. To comply, CEOs and CFOs need a process to determine their confidence in the effectiveness of the company’s systems of control. The process also needs to be acceptable to the external auditors, who will be required to attest to management’s assessment of internal controls over financial reporting. Furthermore, the ever-changing and increasing regulatory pressure urges organizations to reassess the importance of their internal controls.
