Budgeting Essentials

Overview:

Working without a well thought-out operating budget can be compared to playing Pin the Tail on the Donkey. Although a company might know the direction in which it wants or needs to go, without a budget it must simply feel around in the dark and hope it comes close to its target. Unfortunately, if a business uses this approach, it will eventually fall victim to cash flow problems that could result in its downfall. As many would agree, the budget process in any business can be challenging and time-consuming. However, for a business to survive long-term, it must have a clear view of its goals and its means of achieving those goals. A well-planned budget is just the tool to help steer your company in the right direction–your company will be able to make critical decisions based on current facts and reasonable forecasts.

Finance and non-finance professionals, functional managers, executives, and all individuals involved directly or indirectly with the budgetary planning and an organization’s control process

Commercial Insider Threat Awareness

Overview:

Companies face a dual threat to their security: from outsiders trying to access data and systems, and from insiders such as employees, contractors, or partners who misuse their authorized access. Insiders represent a substantial threat because they have knowledge and access to systems, allowing them to bypass security measures through legitimate means. This makes them difficult to detect. To manage potential insider threats, organizations must establish a security framework that protects, detects, and responds to insider risks to systems, assets, and data. This course introduces essential concepts related to insider threats, focusing on employees' role in protecting their company's sensitive data and systems. This course was developed with subject matter support provided by the Labor & Employment Law Group of the law firm of Baker, Donelson, Bearman, Caldwell & Berkowitz, PC.
