Since management is responsible for the entity’s controls, they should have the means to determine, on an ongoing basis, whether selected controls are operating as designed. Continuous monitoring typically addresses management’s responsibility to assess the adequacy and effectiveness of controls. It enhances managerial capabilities and entity-level controls, while striving to enable maintaining acceptable performance levels. Furthermore, with the ability to identify and correct control problems on a timely basis, automated continuous monitoring enriches an entity’s compliance program. Nonetheless, the key to a successful deployment of automated continuous monitoring is process ownership by personnel assigned responsibility for responding to reported exception conditions.
