Duration: 100 Minutes
CPE Credits: 2

Don't miss your chance to watch one of the most popular webinars from 2021. While this presentation was previously recorded, the presenter, Steve Dawson, CFE, CPA, will be online answering your questions live during the rebroadcast.

The remote-employee work environment is among the many societal changes resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic and it appears this change is not temporary. This change requires us to review existing internal controls initially designed around a “presence in the office” environment. Additionally, the methods used to perform the necessary monitoring for control compliance must change. 

In this webinar, you will learn considerations for amending existing controls, as well as how to design new controls that address this operating environment. This webinar will also teach you how to modify the monitoring function to apply to an overall remote workforce. 

You Will Learn How To:  

  • Recognize the necessary control changes that apply to most types of organizations  
  • Assess and prioritize the various changes needed  
  • Consider how to redesign existing controls  
  • Consider how to design new controls
