The PCAOB instructs external auditors to verify compliance with SOX during their financial audits and some private and non-profit organizations are voluntarily complying with SOX because it is in the best interest of their stakeholders. This webinar covers how to select, document, and test key control activities, address deficiencies, and the increasing role of IT GCCs and automation. Also, strategies on how to increase the benefits from SOX and techniques to reduce compliance costs.
You should attend because all companies publicly traded in the US are required to comply with the Sarbanes-Oxley Act (SOX) and auditors play an important role helping their organizations meet that requirement.
Audit directors and managers, internal and external auditors, chief risk officers, chief ethics officers and others charged with compliance and ethics responsibilities.
You will learn the requirements of SOX, key steps for effective compliance, how to focus on the relevant risks and controls, and ways to get buy-in throughout the organization to develop an effective entity-wide project plan for compliance.
