“GRC” (Governance, Risk Management, Compliance) has become a hot topic in industry over the last several years. The high profile scandals of the late 1990s and early 2000s led to Congress enacting the Sarbanes-Oxley Act (SOX). Lapses in governance, risk management and compliance programs and controls were pointed to as major contributing factors to many of these scandals. SOX added various investor protections and enhanced governance related measures, which have had significant impact on entities of all types and sizes. Entity wide audit programs must be steeped in the fundamentals while balanced with strategic level focus to ensure effective and efficient coverage of GRC programs and controls. This course explores the vital balance and integration of audit fundamentals and strategic level focus in practical application terms as it applies to GRC.
