Course Description

Back in the late 90s and early 2000s, a number of instances of financial fraud were uncovered in large public corporations, leading to a growing feeling of distrust in the market. Back in 2001, for instance, a scandal surrounded the American energy company Enron when they were discovered to have used fraudulent accounting practices and loopholes to hide their losses in financial reports. This incident, along with numerous other scandals like it, prompted the creation of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act to provide more oversight.                 

SOX aims to protect investors by focusing on improving financial accountability. The Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002 made company executives personally responsible not only for the accuracy of their company’s financial statements and disclosures but also for reporting on the effectiveness of its Internal Controls. Complying with the requirements of the Act sometimes can seem like an overwhelming task, but this entertaining and informative presentation will walk you through the latest requirements quickly and easily. This CPE webinar will provide you with a freshly detailed overview of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002.

Major Topics Covered:

  • The 3 critical questions: Is it accurate? Are you sure? Can you prove it?
  • Review how exactly Enron brought about the destruction of investor confidence
  • Summarize the accountability and disclosure requirements of signing officers
  • Evaluate the practice of co-certification
  • Examine updates and highlights of the Act
  • Describe the penalties under the Act
  • Assess the risk of misstatement
  • Address specific departmental concerns
  • The future of SOX
