Internal Controls

Internal Controls – a process for assuring achievement of an organization’s objectives. It includes operational effectiveness and efficiency, reliable financial reporting, and compliance with laws, regulations, and policies. A broad concept, internal controls involve everything that controls risks to an organization.

Cougar Mountain has discussed Internal Controls in blog posts as well as every webinar in Denise McClure’s three-part series on fraud prevention.
