Financial Management Assessment

Financial management is one of the most critical aspects of an organization. Managing your finances, accounting and compliance during tax time with correct organizational filings for your enterprise and the personnel is critical.

C’S|3 financial assessment takes you through a series of questions to evaluate your current requirements, validate your accounting and financial practices, and help you with ideas for optimizing your accounting workflows and possibly even automate some accounting processes based on your business transactions and operational needs.

A financial statement audit is an engagement performed by an independent Certified Public Accountant to provide assurance that your financial statements are reported in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the U.S. C’S|3 certified public accountants, provide audited financial statements to businesses, nonprofit organizations and government agencies. Each audit is customized to meet the needs of the organization. However, the overall approach to every audit is the same.

  • Engagement Acceptance: The American Institute of CPAs recommends that an auditor evaluate the risks associated with each engagement. Therefore, a C’S|3 consulting auditor inquires about any special circumstances, the integrity of management, and pending lawsuits before performing a basic assessment or a full-fledged audit based on the nature of engagement. During this phase, C’S|3 auditors will also evaluate the staffing needed to complete the engagement and determine that each accounting auditor staff member is able to maintain an independent viewpoint while performing the engagement. Once C’S|3 The auditor decides to accept the engagement, an engagement letter is prepared that details the timing, responsibility, and cost of the audit.
  • Planning: C’S|3 Auditing standards require that an auditor prepare adequate planning for an engagement. The amount of audit planning needed is in direct relation to the size and complexity of your organization. C’S|3 Audit planning involves obtaining an understanding of the organization’s business and industry, performing trend and ratio analysis, documenting your entity’s process of internal control, and assessing the risks of misstatements in s financial statements. C’S|3 auditor utilizes the results of the planning process to determine the timing and extent of audit testing.
  • Audit Tests: During the fieldwork process, C’S| audit consultants spend time with your organization’s offices and perform tests of financial data. For instance, a CPA selects a random sample of hundred disbursements to ensure checks are payable to the correct vendor and are written for the correct amount. In addition, your engaged C’S|3 auditor reviews the invoices associated with the disbursement to ensure the expenses are classified correctly and that the vendor actually exists. Depending on the results of the planning process, the auditor performs a variety of tests on financial statement accounts.
  • Account Analysis: During the account analysis process, the C’S|3 auditor ensures that financial statement account balances are supported by underlying documentation and analysis. A C’S|3 CPA evaluates the results of tests and reviews management’s responses, as well as the accounting team’s responses to inquiries and records the audit-adjusting journal entries. A C’S|3 auditor also documents reasons for large changes in accounts from year to year and performs any necessary research after approvals from your leadership regarding requirements under generally accepted accounting principles.
  • Reporting: C’S|3 CPAs will issue an opinion on audited financial statements as to whether the financial statements are presented in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the U.S. The opinion is issued on the Independent Auditor’s Report. Furthermore, the C’S|3 Auditors may also draft the basic financial statements and the accompanying notes for the organization’s management. The C’S|3 auditor also issues a report on any weaknesses found in the entity’s internal control process. C’S|3 auditors will also connect you with our accounting platform experts to guide you to a low-cost accounting system that will optimize your insights to your business, financial statements, and reporting requirements.
  • Summation: C’S|3 auditors are required to retain, secure, accurate proper documentation regarding the audit. The final step is ensured by obtaining signatures from management regarding management’s responsibility for the information reported in the financial statements. The information is retained by the CPA’s shared with your organizational financial and accounting leadership and your seasoned auditing/accounting firm should lawsuits occur regarding reported amounts and for a future account analysis.

Organizational Risk Management Audit

C’S|3 comprehensive organizational risk management audit is 4-6 month engagement that includes all our assessments used to bring you a detailed report of risks on all parts of your enterprise ranging from Governance, Compliance, Legal, Human Resources, Technology, Facilities, Financial, Brand/Communication, IP, DR/BC, Vendor and organizational implementing or planning Change management processes. C’S|3 comprehensive risk management roadmap helps your key leadership to map out strategic risk management on one year, three year and five year roadmap.

C’S|3 Consultants use different frameworks like FISMA, COSA and ISO 31000 frameworks.

A risk management framework (RMF) is the structured process used to identify potential threats to an organization and to define the strategy for eliminating or minimizing the impact of these risks, as well as the mechanisms to effectively monitor and evaluate this strategy.

Risk Management Framework (RMF) Overview

If organizations decide to take the FISMA approach, they select and specify various security controls for their systems. This is done as a part of an enterprise-wide information security program. The FISMA approach includes management of risks faced by the organization as a whole and the individuals involved with all operational processes.

The FISMA approach gives an effective framework to select security controls in a system that are necessary to protect operations, individuals, and the assets of an organization.

Risk-Based Approach

The FISMA risk management framework is a process for companies that combines risk management activities and security into the system’s lifespan. This approach takes effectiveness into account as well as efficiency and constraints that an organization faces due to laws, orders, policies, regulations, and more.

The following are activities that come with the FISMA risk management approach:

  • Prepare Step: This step includes taking care of all essential activities in an organization, the mission of the business and its processes along with all the information system levels of the company.
  • Categorize Step: Here the information is processed, stored, and transmitted based on impact analysis.
  • Select Step: Here the security controls are selected tailored to the company. They supplement the existing security controls when needed based on the company’s risk assessment.
  • Implementation Step: Here security controls are implemented and the process is documented based on how it works within the organization.
  • Assess Step: This step involves the assessment of security controls using predefined procedures so that the company can know whether or not the controls have been implemented correctly.
  • Authorize Step: This step is based on the risk to the operations and assets resulting from the risk management system to determine which risks are acceptable and which are not.
  • Monitor Step: The monitoring step is an ongoing process that assesses the effectiveness of the controls and documents the changes that have been made to the risk management system.

Organizations have come to realize that enterprise risk management is an ongoing and iterative process. Developing and implementing a strategy just once is not enough anymore. The risks to any company continue to evolve based on many changes in technology, the physical and economic climate, and more. This is why companies always need to be prepared to handle any risks that may come.

The three risk management frameworks are the most widely used ones by companies across the world. To implement these strategies, monitor them, and improve upon them regularly requires some amount of expertise.

  • Physical Controls The security controls that can often be touched and provide physical security to protect your information assets.
