Inherent Risk - The susceptibility of an assertion about a class of transaction, account balance or disclosure to a misstatement that could be material, either individually or when aggregated with other misstatements before consideration of any related controls. 2. Control Risk – The risk that a material misstatement that could occur and that could be material, will not be prevented, or detected and corrected on a timely basis by the entity’s internal controls.
