What is Internal Controls?
In file transfer, the term “internal controls” refers to both technology and manual (human-performed) procedures used to mitigate against risk. Examples of typical internal technology include firewalls, secure file transfer software and standalone encryption packages. Examples of manual internal control procedures include background checks, “multiple signer” document approval workflows and training to steer people away from risky behavior (such as “certificate spills“).
