COSO 2013: What's new, what's changed, and why does it matter? 


The world has sustained a lot of change since the COSO Framework was first published in 1992 and internal control practices need to keep pace. In January 2013, the updated version of the COSO Framework went into effect and those updates came at an opportune time, making it easier to achieve consistency in internal control practices and evaluate their effectiveness.  Please join the DC IIA and Protiviti for a roundtable discussion that will highlight what has changed, what has not changed, and what it means to companies in today's business environment.
