Corporate Compliance Report Companies that are being established as well as companies struggling with compliance issues need some method of dealing with governance. The method of handling corporate governance and compliance issues is to implement an enterprise risk management system (ERM). The system should examine alternatives and incorporate the suitable processes that fit into the company's structure. Developing internal control and corporate governance procedures is the foundation for such a system. Developing these procedures include identifying and putting into practice compliance steps and processes.
COSO's ERM framework concentrates on the development of a strategy that includes the importance of a risk and internal control "consciousness" throughout an organization. COSO's framework introduces eight key principles for ERM: "internal environment; objective setting; event identification; risk assessment; risk response; control activities; information and communication; and monitoring" (Managing Risk, 2003, p. 2). COSO's framework also includes four objectives categories; these are: strategy; operations; financial reporting; and compliance. COSCO intended this framework to be an effective tool for keeping stakeholders and board directors informed about organizational procedures and processes. The framework could also be used to help an organization respond to uncertainties that will help directors to measure how well their organizations are managing its own risks.
This part of the process includes using systems and organizations for compliance techniques. Finally, the companies will use a problem solving approach to determine which solutions to implement into the compliance effort. The companies will begin to implement its enterprise risk management system by developing an appropriate internal control and corporate governance system. In the wake of high-profile corporate scandals and subsequent regulatory legislation, reporting internal controls has become a requirement. These requirements have led to organizations viewing risk management as an area of vital importance.
Importance for Risk Management to Business Leaders Business Leaders and managers are tasked with the responsibility of ensuring due diligence is performed while making decisions for the organization. Having a formal risk management program as part of the organization’s information security program provides the leaders a proper process and diligence before making important information security related decisions. The risk analysis helps managers to decide whether to go ahead with a new security program or not, while the risk assessment would help determine if the types of controls to be that needs to be implemented (Peltier, 2010). The risk assessment also helps identify the countermeasures to mitigate the risks, or help decide if it’s best to accept the risk rather than mitigate
Formulation and Implementation of Corporate Strategy Corporate strategy is concerned with broad decisions about an organization's scope and direction.
