Program Description

Prevention of a fraud before it happens is a high priority for most businesses. However, most businesses have few, if any, internal controls that will deter fraudulent behavior. In this session the cutting-edge guidance on using internal controls for fraud prevention as outlined in COSO's publication for small businesses and the recently released AICPA white paper titled "Understanding Internal Control and Internal Control Services" are discussed. Participants receive recommendations for actual control systems and actual controls that can be implemented at their businesses or their client's businesses right away.
