Enterprise risk management initiatives continue to mature in many large public companies, as well as nonpublic enterprises. Still, most nonpublic firms do not have the time, financial resources or personnel to fully implement ERM—even though a partial ERM implementation can serve as a first line of defense against fraud and as a catalyst for more profitable operations. In this interactive course, learn how to apply COSO's ERM process in an SME environment, including how to identify whether a business is ready for ERM and 10 ERM-related action items you can implement when you return to the office.
