Preventive Solution with Risk Mitigation

From the Paper:

"To conclude, one must state that risk management is a necessary element in the maintenance of a company's success. In the case of Whole Foods, it should ensure that it uses more so preventive controls before releasing detective and corrective controls. The company must also allow for a broader manner of communication in order to properly engage in risk management; this should occur amongst all parties including the senior management, auditors, and the board. Moreover, establishing a strong company framework by following COSO's recommended five components as a guide, will allow for the company to remain prepared to prevent and further mitigate any risks that may arise. With these combined strategies, Whole Foods will be able to strongly tackle its corporate compliance."
