b.) SEGREGATION OF DUTIES
- Walker Company must have tasks dispersed to different departments.
- In order to maximize time and maximize the order sales, Walker Company must be able to see that different departments are assigned with their specific tasks.
c.) ACCESS CONTROL
- Walker Company's computer department must see to it the importance of providing more computer units.
- The organization management must implement controls that restrict unauthorized access. Since the company relies only to a stand alone work station and it has no physical source documents for back-up, the destruction of files can leave Walker Company with inadequate inventory record.
d.) INVENTORY RECORDS
- Walker Company's sales department must always maintain file back-ups to prevent loss of sales records since they only have a stand alone PC work station.
- Walker company must be able to purchase more computers for fast and more reliable documents for their sale inputs to prevent manual procedures since manual procedures may result to communication logs to employees or logs on transmitting order to purchasing department.
