assurances to management. (NOTE: Safeguarding assets and protecting personal
data are paramount to ensuring the viability of a business. Demonstrate to the
lender/investor that your assets will be safeguarded and customer information
(if applicable) will be protected.)

internal control recommendations that you made, suggest how you will implement
each within your business environment, indicating how challenges or resistances
