SOX Process Management for SOX Compliance
Interfacing’s Sarbanes-Oxley (SOX) compliance team works with your organization to help build stronger internal controls and risk management programs, ensuring a successful implementation of SOX compliance initiatives.
Key critical components to adhere to your SOX 404 compliance includes a COSO framework deployment, SOX specific risk assessment, control rationalization all the way to documentation and testing supported by Interfacing’s industry-leading Digital Business Platform. We strive to help your organization achieve SOX implementation strategic goals and additionally significantly reduce costs in the process.
Compliance requirements are growing!
Compliance in it’s most basic essence is simply ‘defining a policy’, ‘enforcing the new policy’ and ‘proving that the policy has been implemented’. This affects to a certain degree, all publicly owned companies regardless of their industry or country of origin. This type of compliance legislation also serves to protect investors by improving the reliability and accuracy of for example, corporate disclosures. Managing SOX compliance processes efficiently requires the right approach and a rigorous methodology.
Legislation dictates increased rigor and accountability for:
- Reporting financial results
- Managing, auditing and assessing the internal business processes that drive those results
- Governing the ethical conduct of company executives, directors and officers
Implementing the new legislation means applying well-thought-out internal controls that identify weaknesses – a good overall business practice for any organization. However, it also presents business and IT managers with a complex task that involves increased responsibility and liability, and many get bogged down with auditing and reporting procedures.
Furthermore, such regulatory and compliance requirements will continue to become more complex, which makes it increasingly important to leverage the methods used to manage Sarbanes Oxley Processes (SOX) with a highly adaptable and dynamic software platform digital compliance solution.
In leveraging technology to support SOX requirements, compliance auditing tools provide organizations with a vital link to compliance objectives within the IT infrastructure. This infrastructure enables attestation, monitoring, and reporting tools to create a secure audit trail and present a unified view and communication of an individuals activities across the organization based on the company’s policies. Additionally, all security-related changes are approved by the proper individual and sensitive data is restricted only to those authorized to view and examine.
