A new guidebook aims to help companies mitigate the risks of spreadsheets being misused for corporate fraud or causing multimillion-dollar reporting errors.

The guide, “Spreadsheet Risks: Frequently Asked Questions,” from business consulting and internal audit firm Protiviti, takes readers through all aspects of spreadsheet risk, from a high-level overview to training and awareness.

Sections include executive ownership and governance, creating a library of critical spreadsheets, implementing a spreadsheet control framework, assessing spreadsheet controls and current risk exposure, gaining assurance over critical spreadsheets, spreadsheet risk indicators and reporting, resources, and technology enabling effective spreadsheet risk management.
