Webinar(CA): K2’s Small-Business Internal Control, Security and Fraud Prevention and Detection


Internal controls are more important than ever, and their importance increases daily. But internal controls present a challenge for many smaller organizations. Learn to evaluate, develop, and implement an effective internal control structure in a small business environment. Discover how to assess risk in smaller organizations, and how to implement preventive, detective, deterrent, and compensating controls to mitigate these risks, even in the absence of proper segregation of duties.
Additionally, learn technology-focused techniques for preventing and detecting fraud as well as securing information systems and sensitive data. As a participant, you will benefit from case studies where theoretical concepts are implemented and demonstrated in leading small business accounting software programs, such as QuickBooks and QuickBooks Online, Sage 50/Peachtree, Microsoft Dynamics GP, and Sage 100.
