It's been more than 20 years since the Committee of Sponsoring Organizations of the Treadway Commission (COSO) released its Internal Control—Integrated Framework (the original framework). The original framework is widely accepted as a leading framework for designing, implementing, and conducting internal control and assessing the effectiveness of internal control. Since then, technology has drastically changed the business operating environment and the associated risks. In May 2013, the COSO foundation released an update to the framework.  The framework was updated due to global economic changes, enhanced information technology and increased shareholder expectations. Professionals must obtain a basic understanding of the concepts, principles and potential impact, including changes from the 1992 framework and the key COSO components and 17 principles.  This course provides an overview of the important concepts of COSO 2013. You'll learn about the important changes in the COSO framework and explore opportunities for management to place a renewed focus on internal control and enhance and solidify their Sarbanes-Oxley attestation.

Excellent course which explained the differences between COSO 1992 and COSO 2013. Nicely laid out reference materials. I like the way that Lynn listed the steps needed for the transition plan in an easy to understand manner.

Excellent introduction to COSO 2013. I really enjoyed this course, as it provided solid overview of Internal Control and COSO 1992, contrasted with the new concepts and requirements of COSO 2013.

This is an excellent overview of the COS framework and establishing a framework for internal controls. It's useful even if you already have robust internal control policies and procedures.

It was a bit more difficult course, than it was before organized by the same author. Probably for the next time it would be good, if there will provided more slides of the topic.

Not sure why a good class that lasts 1:26 minutes doesn't warrant 1.5 CPE hours. A CPE hour is 50 minutes. Clearly there are 1.5 hours here. Good class otherwise.
