The Sarbanes Oxley Act (SOX) was enacted by US Congress to prevent accounting fraudulent. SOX compliance requires the implementation of internal controls to monitor the SOX procedures. SOX processes document regulatory requirements, requiring organizations to manage compliance issues in an efficient way. Many people feel overwhelmed when faced with the daunting task of documenting their company’s Sarbanes-Oxley controls. However, the SOX documentation process does not have to be complicated. It is not a mystery.
To identify controls, you must understand the concept of internal control. Internal control is a process designed to provide reasonable assurance regarding the achievement of objectives in the following areas: effectiveness/efficiency of operations; reliability of financial reporting; compliance with applicable laws/regulations; and safeguarding assets. You must also understand the types of control and the various methods of documentation.
This webinar explores how identifying and documenting controls for Sarbanes-Oxley (SOX) is key to enabling the evaluation of process design. This presentation will show you how simple it can be to deliver SOX documentation that auditors and executives are pleased to sign.
