Internal controls. Set them up well and nobody seems to notice. Set them up poorly and bad things usually follow…often financial losses. Make them too tight, it slows down member service. Make them too loose, employees may be tempted to do bad things. The key is to find the right balance.
This webinar will provide fundamental audit steps to ensure that internal controls are appropriately strong in key areas. These are controls every credit union should be aware of and monitor – but in the busy financial services world, these controls may be overlooked, not be set up properly, or not carried out adequately. This session will look at internal controls designed to protect the credit union both from internal fraud or error and external fraud via electronic means, including controls in teller operations, the accounting office, lending and collections, member services, and other areas.
