Benefits of Attending

Compliance Seminar's professionals have been working with information technology controls for many years and have been providing SOX compliance assistance within the IT General Controls area.

This seminar is designed to provide an overview of the specific activities performed by individuals or systems designed to ensure that business objectives are met. IT General Controls are a subset of an entity's internal controls over financial reporting (ICFR).

Information Technology controls are described in two categories: General Controls and Application Controls. The seminar will cover IT General Controls over the information technology (IT) environment, computer operations, access to programs and data, program development and program changes.

IT application controls will be discussed concerning transaction processing controls. The COBIT Framework (Control Objectives for Information Technology) is the most widely-used framework being used in SOX compliance efforts. This framework will be covered in detail.
