Watch this recorded webcast

Watch a replay of the SAP GRC webcast to find out how to maximize the efficiency and effectiveness of your journal entry process using the right combination of controls and GRC technology.

A combination of PCAOB inspection results and the prevalence of financial statement fraud have influenced companies and accounting firms alike to refocus efforts on the journal entry process. Hot topics in this area include:

  • access rights for those creating and posting journal entries;
  • completeness over their population of journal entries;
  • control procedures such as park and post and workflows; and
  • continuous monitoring techniques to promote early identification of potential issues.

This webcast will help you understand why controlling journals in SAP is a difficult task and there is no "magic bullet" or "one size fits all" approach. You will learn leading practice options for controlling journal entries in SAP, including effective access, configuration, workflow and continuous monitoring. We will discuss real life examples about how companies have implemented effective governance and monitoring over the journal entry process leveraging SAP functionality in tandem with GRC tools.

This webcast will provide you with techniques to:

  1. Understand the financial posting tables in SAP (BKPF and BSEG) and how to best leverage the data within for your journal entry process.
  2. Identify the five commonly used elements to identify manual journal entry populations - transaction codes, document types, business transactions, user types, and GL account settings.
  3. Define control solution options for best mitigation of journal entry risk including combinations of access, configuration, and manual controls.
  4. Leverage real life examples about how companies have implemented effective governance and monitoring over the journal entry process leveraging SAP functionality in tandem with GRC tools such as Process Controls and Fraud Management.
