Internal audit teams didn't exactly predict a global pandemic like COVID-19. Even if they did, preparation was likely minimal. Ensuring that the appropriate controls to mitigate against the risk of financial misstatement are in place and that these controls are operating effectively can be a challenge for management. To help organizations navigate through this, we're bringing together the best and brightest minds of SOX compliance to figure it out together.
Join David McGuire, a former CAO/CFO and current Strategic Accounts Practice Leader for Embark, and David Thande, a former VP of Risk and Control and current Director of Product Marketing for Workiva, as they discuss with Jaime Gutierrez, Senior Director of Internal Audit for GameStop, how to better help stakeholders connect data, people, and processes to mitigate financial reporting risks during times of uncertainty.
After this webinar, you’ll be able to:
- Explain the impact of COVID-19 on SOX planning, testing, operations, and execution
- Summarize firsthand accounts from other SOX experts about the uncharted compliance territories professionals are navigating
- Highlight areas of risks the global pandemic has uncovered in SOX processes and what to do about them
