Internal Control System (ICS)
"The biggest advantage of the software is its incredible flexibility. Once you have understood the functionality and structure of the application, you can use the software to support many different types of requirements."
An effective internal control system is an important component of GRC and provides appropriate security for achieving goals in the following categories:
- Robustness of business processes
- Reliability of financial reporting
- Regulations and standards compliance
Important: Preventive risk management is one of the prime functions of the executive board or managing directors. In the event of culpable breaches, the respective individual is personally liable and must replace the resulting damages.
Internal control systems have the capabilities to effectively prevent improper or malicious actions in companies. They also offer great potential in improving the efficiency and effectiveness of processes by providing the necessary transparency for effective monitoring and creating strong risk awareness among management and employees. risk2value delivers a structured environment to monitor the risks that are inherently hidden in your business processes and assign them to organizational areas or processes.
