Don’t Break the ICE (Internal Control Environment)*

Beware of thin ICE (Internal Control Environment)! In this session, we will discuss the structure of a well-designed internal control structure. This includes not only operations, but also reporting and compliance. We will touch on the Committee of Sponsoring Organizations (COSO) report and its five integrated components. The session will conclude with some real examples and some common areas of “thin ICE,” and how you can navigate around them.
