Financial institutions face intense regulatory scrutiny of their risk management practices and having a homogenized and standardized framework for managing the risk inherent in modern-day payments is no longer an option.

 COSO, the Committee of Sponsoring Organizations, offers a framework for establishing internal controls that are effective and operationally rationale. In this session, participants will learn how the COSO framework can be leveraged to create internal controls to mitigate payments risk.

Learning Objectives:

  • Define and understand the basic tenets of the COSO Framework
  • Describe its five key components
  • How to assess the effectiveness of a system of internal control
  • How to identify deficiencies in internal controls of payments
  • Risk mitigation for third party vendors
  • A project plan for implementing the COSO Framework

Why Should You Attend:

Individuals who are responsible for or participate in the development of internal controls for all payment types that affect customers should attend this training in order to understand the basic concepts and structure of a COSO Framework.

This training is also relevant to staff members that manage third party vendors as well as those that are responsible for or participate in internal audit and compliance functions.
