The publication provides an overview of ICFR and focuses on “key ICFR concepts” such as the control environment, control activities, reasonable assurance, and the hierarchy of ICFR deficiencies. The 2019 edition includes “additional information highlighting the significant body of research demonstrating the importance of ICFR to enhancing investor confidence and strengthening the financial reporting process.”
