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.

A Sarbanes-Oxley Act (SOX) Case Study

Turning Complexity into Simplicity

Because of its simple, straightforward methodology, even the most complex processes were simplified and understood at a glance with Interfacing’s Enterprise Process Center (EPC). Intimidation was turned into confidence and the business users found it easy to document and review their processes and related controls on an ongoing basis. For the company itself, that delivered great peace of mind.

Using EPC not only allowed the company to streamline its processes and engage all levels of management, but also prepared them for the regulatory SOX audits that had become a part of their daily jobs.

Additionally, the auto web publishing allowed stakeholders to view all process areas and review process-ownership reports, so he could determine who was on time and who was delayed in the review and approval of their processes and related documentation.

This transparency of ownership and actions across all levels ensures process maturity at the required level for Sarbanes-Oxley compliance. Another reason why Interfacing’s EPC software continues to play a critical role in supporting the SOX process.
