Are You Sure Your Organization has the Most Efficient Scope for SOX Assessment that Considers the New COSO Principles?
With the updated COSO Internal Control Framework in our hands, organizations should strive towards ensuring a consistent SOX program in their pocket. This should essentially consider the framework’s definition of an effective internal control. According to COSO, internal control exists with the meeting of two tests: (a) when risks to achieve objectives are at acceptable levels, and (b) when all the COSO components and principles are present and functioning.
However, it is seen that regulators have still not changed their requirements in a way that ensures assessment of internal control over financial reporting is made using a top-down and risk-based approach.
