Corporate Governance & SOX Compliance
Addressing the increased requirements of corporate governance is one of the greatest challenges a company going public must address. The Sarbanes-Oxley Act (SOX) is at the top of this list, but other industry-specific corporate governance requirements can also present challenges. While many organizations look to corporate governance and compliance as a “check the box” exercise, progressive companies can derive significant value from these programs and the internal audit department that supports them if they are properly structured and aligned to the overall business objectives.
Our professionals have assisted hundreds of companies with establishing first-year Sarbanes-Oxley compliance programs as well as ongoing compliance. We help organizations transition to a process-based approach for financial control compliance, identifying effective ways to appropriately reduce effort through better risk assessment, scoping and use of technology, thus lowering the cost of compliance.
In addition, we work with audit executives, management and audit committees at companies of virtually any size, public or private, to assist them with their internal audit activities. This can include starting and running the activity for them on a fully outsourced basis or working with an existing internal audit function.
Our solutions include:
- SOX Readiness Activities
- SOX Compliance Year Activities & Ongoing SOX Compliance
- Internal Audit
