Segregation of Duties (SoD) Concepts by CPA Academy

Segregation of duties is a basic, key internal control and one of the most difficult to achieve. It is used to ensure that errors or irregularities are prevented or detected on a timely basis by employees in the normal course of business. Segregation of duties provides two benefits: 1) a deliberate fraud is more difficult because it requires collusion of two or more persons, and 2) it is much more likely that innocent errors will be found.   At the most basic level, it means that no single individual should have control over two or more phases of a transaction or operation. This webinar will explore specific concepts, examples and applications of the segregation of duties control at the corporate level and will use the accounts payable (AP) process as an example.
