CATEGORY: Accounting & Auditing
  Online & Mobile
6 CPE Credits
Level: Basic

This program on the Sarbanes-Oxley Act briefly reviews the primary sections of the Act and the framework of internal control provided by COSO. It discusses the self-assessments that management should consider performing related to internal control. Significant deficiencies and material weaknesses are reviewed and the role of IT in internal control, including COBIT(r), are examined. Techniques for compliance planning and implementation are included. Additionally, implications for private companies are provided, along with why private entities would consider complying.

Note: As we go to press, the SEC has proposed amendments that will change the definition of accelerated and large accelerated filers. As a result of the proposed amendments, smaller reporting companies with less than $100 million in revenues would not be required to obtain an attestation of their internal control over financial reporting from an independent outside auditor.

This course is most beneficial to professionals new to Sarbanes-Oxley who may be at the staff or entry level in organization but also for a seasoned professional with limited exposure to Sarbanes-Oxley.
