Weaknesses in controls over financial reporting - Hudson Labs datasets

Internal controls over financial reporting (ICOFR) are the systems and processes to make sure that the financial statements are correct. Internal controls include really basic things like making sure that employees can’t easily move millions of dollars out of the company’s bank account into their own pockets and making sure the same person doesn’t review their own work.

A material weakness in ICOFR means there was a failure in the company’s systems or processes that could have resulted in a misstatement in their financial statements that an investor would care about. 

Any issues with internal control systems must be disclosed by management in their securities filings. Certain public issuers must also receive an audit of their ICOFR. In this case, the auditor must also notify investors of any weaknesses they identified. 

Hudson Labs’ uses proprietary AI models to identify and extract information about material weaknesses in ICOFR, disclosed by either management or the auditor. We provide automated, factual summaries of the core details and track remediation. To our knowledge, we are the only complete, real-time supplier of ICOFR outcomes in the U.S. market.
