Executives often cite an ability to adapt to change as the most important factor for success in today’s dynamic business environment; however, there is another equally important factor: an unwavering commitment to ethical and responsible business behavior. As many organizations already understand, a formal, written code of conduct is critical in order to transform ethical behavior into something more tangible for employees. Such a code is now a requirement for public companies, as mandated by the Sarbanes-Oxley Act and by the listing requirements of major stock exchanges.

What is the Second Line of Defense?

Essential to effective risk management, the lines-of-defense model is implicit in COSO’s internal control framework through the control environment, control, activities, monitoring and other components of an internal control system.
