This webinar on Creating Risk and Control Matrices that are Effective for Compliance, Internal Audit and SOX404 will provide you with a set of sound principles and a set of guidelines that will assist you in developing Risk and Control Matrices.
The 21st century business organization requires active and engaged risk management activities. Today's risk and compliance process is rather complex and dynamic; therefore it requires the governance, risk and compliance professionals to possess certain skills in order to effectively complete their duties and responsibilities. The days of using staid audit programs are over. Therefore risk and compliance professionals must be able to evaluate each business process using a risk-based approach and to prepare risk and compliance documentation for each engagement.
Objectives of the Presentation
Whether you are planning a SOX engagement or an internal audit, regulatory compliance requirements, or other separate evaluations, just where do you start with planning for the engagement? How do you complete the necessary risk and control documentation that you will need to successfully complete the engagement? This webinar was created to give young risk and compliance professionals with the skills necessary to prepare a Risk and Controls Matrix, including the following:
- Discover the objectives, components and requirements of effective internal controls
- Leveraging internal control framework to create a risk and controls matrix
- Developing risk identification and management strategies to implement for proper monitoring
- Learn about the types of internal controls and how to design them
- Discuss how internal controls are evaluated for their design and operating effectiveness
Why Should you Attend
Practitioners, whether new or experienced, will benefit from this webinar as we discuss and identify risks companies should be aware of and assess controls that should be implemented to mitigate those risks.
Process risk analysis can be used for SOX Compliance or internal audit projects. However, it is also very useful in ensuring that risks are properly mitigated and in determining the key controls in your business process to allow active board and senior management oversight. If not planned in advance, the whole process can grind to a halt while forward thinking companies have already taken those eventualities into account. This session will consider the steps that need to be taken in developing an effective risk and control matrix that can be used within a business either as a SOX compliance or audit tool or more widely as a valuable management oversight assist.
This webinar will provide you with insight to create Risk and Control Matrices that will allow for the identification of areas where risks are significant and would require additional controls that would be applicable to work performed for Compliance, Internal Audit and SOX404.
