Leveraging SOX Compliance Using COSO 2013

COSO 3 Day CPE Workshops

Compliance with the Sarbanes-Oxley Act has most definitively altered the corporate governance, business processes and information technology controls in the United States, and has affected virtually every organization within the U.S. regardless of their listing status.

SOX was signed on July 30, 2002; since that signing there have been many changes to the compliance "rules". A new "game changer" has arrived in 2013: COSO 2013 Framework. This project was commissioned by COSO to replace the COSO 1992 framework as of December 15, 2014.

Learn how to focus your compliance efforts for the assessment of Internal Control Over Financial Reporting (ICFR) which leads to SOX Section 404 compliance. We review the new COSO 2013 framework and how to approach the following goals within the Entity-wide compliance program:

- Simplicity
- Cost Control
- Assurance
- Meeting Management's compliance goals
- Compliance Stakeholder Relationships

This is one of several CPE seminars and workshops we present concerning compliance with the Sarbanes-Oxley Act. This three-day CPE workshop is presented in a training center enviroment where the attendees are focused on the workshop. It designed for compliance managers, controllers, CFO's and others who have to improve the internal control framework and the testing of key controls. We cover in this three day workshop the contents of our four seminars: COSO 2013: Overview of the Framework, The Sequel, ICFR Assessments and IT General Controls.

The standard cost of this CPE workshop is $1,995.00 per attendee. Each attendee will receive 24 hours of CPE credit. Each CPE workshop is limited to the first 20 signups.

Benefits of Attending

SEC registered companies are faced with making an assessment of their internal controls and preparing to work with their external auditors in 2008 to completely comply with the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002. This workshop will position the issuer’s staff to understand the compliance environment and develop deliverables which can be used in 2008 to opine to the external auditors in their compliance with the SEC Management Guidance. You will also understand what the auditors will be needing as input under Auditing Standard 5. The results of attending this workshop will be a better focused compliance program that meets the needs of the issuer and the external auditors. This workshop will be instructed by cost-conscious internal control experts. They have helped dozens of companies comply with the Sarbanes-Oxley Act. They have been presenting compliance seminars throughout the United States since the Act’s ratification in 2004. The instructors will candidly share their experience and present a pragmatic approach to Sarbanes-Oxley compliance.
