The United States Congress passed the Sarbanes-Oxley Act in 2002 and established rules to protect the public from fraudulent or erroneous practices by corporations and other business entities. The goal of the legislation is to increase transparency in the financial reporting by corporations and to require a formalized system of checks and balances in each company. SOX compliance is not just a legal obligation but also a good business practice. Of course, companies should behave ethically and limit access to internal financial systems. But implementing SOX financial security controls has the side benefit of also helping to protect the company from data theft by insider threat or cyberattack. SOX compliance can encompass many of the same practices as any data security initiative.
Complying with the requirements of the Sarbanes-Oxley 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 Online CPE webinar on Accounting will provide you with a consistent process for complying with the Act and offers many recommendations in many Financial Statement critical areas.
