ABSTRACT
The article offers information related to materiality in an organization. Materiality is a measure of impact. It is a level of weakness in either the design or the operation of information controls that are significant enough to be greater than the risk the organization is willing to take. The key is correlating risk with the level of impact that a weakness carries with it
