The aim of this practical seminar is to provide participants with an understanding of the importance of the overall ‘control environment’ and what might be the warning signs to look out for when assessing organisations for the first time and during routine monitoring. There will be an opportunity to work through case studies and practical examples, and to build up a practical checklist that can be used when making assessments.
