Why You Should Attend

SOX Compliance & Evolution to Risk Management

Many companies have had their SOX and or other overall governance programs in place for quite some years now. Not all companies may formally be required to comply with SOX standards but many regard it as a necessity to comply with good governance to control their business risks. Similar guidelines have therefore been implemented by many companies. While we will discuss the concepts of SOX and related regulations, the course will focus on how to ensure your overall governance program is efficient and effective. Are you testing the right controls the ones essential to preventing or detecting a material misstatement? Are you testing too much? Does your company make the best use of technology to assess the adequacy of controls over financial reporting? But are you also thinking outside the box, making your company ready for the unexpected.


After attending this course, you will leave with a solid understanding of how to apply top-down, risk-based principles in defining the scope of work for your Risk Control Assessment, including SOX compliance. You will also return with information on how you can apply technology to both make your assessment process more efficient and more effective as well as a more thorough understanding of how best to communicate the value being derived from your SOX based expenditures.
