Control Classifications

Control classifications sort controls further into type of actions taken. 

  1. Preventive control - An internal control that is used to prevent undesirable events, errors, and other occurrences that an organization has determined could have a negative material effect on a process or end product.
  2. Detective control - A control that is used to identify events (undesirable or desired), errors, and other occurrences that an enterprise has determined to have a material effect on a process or end product.
  3. Corrective control - These controls are designed to correct errors, omissions, and unauthorized uses and intrusions once they are detected.
