An organizationâ€™s internal environment is responsible for generating reliable financial reporting and complying with laws and regulations. Internal business process improvement methods establish best practices and strengthen corporate governance and risk management. Consider the COSO framework using the PowerPoint presentation and the ERM Framework graphic in this week’s Resources. Write a 1-2 page paper using an internal environment that you are familiar with and complete the COSO framework for this environment as outlined below. For example, an internal environment might be the development of an organizationâ€™s incentive systems.
- State the control objectives
- Identify the risk sources
- Perform a risk assessment
- Develop a risk response
- Determine the control activities
- Provide a method of informing and communicating the results
- Discuss the process that is used for monitoring the information
Your 1- to 2-page paper should reflect the application of the Resources presented this week, as well as knowledge gained from previous weeksâ€™ Required or Optional Readings.
Be sure to support your work with specific citations from this weekâ€™s Learning Resources and any additional resources.
