Public Company Readiness – Year One SOX
Establish a roadmap to comply with SOX 404 by right sizing your SOX programme and infusing leading practices to build an effective, efficient, and sustainable control framework and programme.
Assess your SOX compliance programme to rationalise your controls and validate your overall approach. Our diagnostic services build upon years of SOX compliance activities and the application of SEC and PCAOB guidance.
Ongoing SOX Compliance
Assess the effectiveness of your SOX programme to ensure it adjusts to the changing needs of your organisation. Conduct training and awareness for executives, process, and control owners. Establish a controls-mindset in the organisation.
Understand how technology impacts your control environment and identify optimisation opportunities by evaluating control design and operating effectiveness of application and IT general controls, as well as the impact of major technology projects (e.g., ERP implementations).
