NEW! Are You COSO Ready? A presentation of the Updated COSO Framework discusses key changes to the Framework and how they will impact your organization:
  • Why the change is occurring now and what factors influenced the update.
  • What has not changed from the original guidance.
  • The nine elements that have changed and which seven directly impact internal audit.
  • How to continue your education and understanding of the Framework.
This three-hour COSO Workshop provides a more comprehensive overview of the key changes to the Framework. In this workshop, participants will:
  • Hear a brief history of the updates, revisions, and enhancements.
  • Discuss the implications of the updated Framework on internal audit activities.
  • Gain insight into implementing the new Framework to increase the value of your assurance and consulting services.
This is a good starting point to assess how these changes will impact your current practices.
