Sarbanes-Oxley Compliance: Managing Technology Controls (The Game Plan)

The Sarbanes-Oxley Act is the single most important piece of legislation affecting public corporations since the U.S. securities laws of the early 1930s. The act charges managers with the task of certifying that they have an operational system of internal controls over financial reporting. Every IT manager must understand what he or she needs to do to comply with these internal control requirements. In this program, Scott Green, Global Head of Audit and Compliance at Weil, Gotshal & Manges, a leading law firm in the practice of corporate governance, and author of 'Manager's Guide to the Sarbanes-Oxley Act: Improving Internal Controls to Prevent Fraud,' explains how to comply with Sarbanes-Oxley. Green opens the program with an overview of Sarbanes-Oxley, describing what is required for compliance. Then, he explores the COBIT roadmap, a nine-phase IT action plan for compliance with the act. Green continues with a discussion of the benefits, pitfalls, and impact of the compliance process, and concludes with some guidelines for managing your organization's Sarbanes-Oxley activities.
