Event Description

Title
COVID-19: Ask the Experts – Maintaining Internal Controls in the Remote Work Environment

Subject Matter Experts
Erin Zollenkopf, CEO, Susan Matlack Jones & Associates
Jessica Yoder, Shareholder, McDonald Jacobs

Amid these unprecedented times, many organizations have moved all employees and operations to function remotely. Maintaining strong internal controls should still be a priority for organizations to reduce the possibility of mismanagement, error, and fraud. Challenges can arise when many controls are manual or require two people to perform, which isn’t always possible while following social distancing guidelines. Join Jessica Yoder from McDonald Jacobs and Erin Zollenkopf from Susan Matlack Jones & Associates to learn more about how you can maintain strong controls to keep pace with the current ever-shifting environment.

  • Learn more about changes to make to your remote internal control processes and tools you can use.
  • Get your questions answered during this one-hour webinar.

Send your questions or comments on this topic ahead of the session to [email protected]

*Space is limited to 500 participants. Please note that a recording of this webinar will be made available on NAO's COVID-19 Resources page for later viewing.
