Baking Flexibility into SOX Planning: Planning, Risk Assessments, and Scoping for the Real World
A key to a successful Sarbanes-Oxley (SOX) program is robust and effective planning, risk assessment, and scoping processes—which the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board continues to emphasize in speeches and inspections of external audit firms. Simultaneously, the pandemic, technology advances, regulatory changes, and many other factors disrupted economies and business models at breakneck speed. As a result, SOX programs must react to the impact these changes have on risk and controls environments.
Join Sue King of KPMG, Ernest Anunciacion of Workiva, and David Thande of the SOX & Internal Controls Professionals Group as they work to unpack this conflict between flexibility and planning. Learn how SOX teams can become more agile to a changing scope of risk, what items to consider in their 2021 SOX plan, and how technology can be leveraged to iron out bumps along the way.
After this webinar, attendees will be able to:
- Describe ways to improve SOX process efficiency with technology
- Recognize practical methods of improving planning, risk assessments, and scoping
- Identify emerging, heightened areas of focus for 2021 SOX programs
