“A good overview of the various components of SOX that will help us prioritize the components and the resources we dedicate to compliance within each one.”

The Sarbanes-Oxley Act is the most significant audit and corporate governance reform in recent history. With the Act’s requirements of certification, auditability, and disclosure, Internal Audit is squarely in the hot seat to attest to the existence of appropriate controls.
This two-day seminar has been developed to arm you with specific tools and techniques to help your organization comply with the full intent of Sarbanes-Oxley and position IA to take advantage of the opportunities the Act presents. You will cover the letter and the spirit of the law, focus on the critical nature of the risks it addresses, and learn the controls that must be in place to assure compliance. You will drill down to the essential requirements of the Act and learn practical methodologies for ensuring that your organization is meeting the requirements of §302 and §404. In addition, you will learn how to use the IT-focused system-centric tools and techniques that are critical to complying with §409.
