Auditboard Event: Upleveling Your SOX Program in 2024

When:  Mar 7, 2024 from 14:00 to 15:00 (ET)
Associated with  Rhode Island Chapter

Over the past two years, many organizations have faced challenges with their SOX programs. Increased time spent on control documentation, a higher number of deficiencies, and more time spent satisfying external auditors have reduced the time that internal audit and control teams can devote to initiatives that add more value.

Join Tom O'Reilly, Field Chief Audit Executive and Connected Risk Advisor at AuditBoard, where he will share practices and strategies of modern SOX programs. He will discuss six core tenets — educate, eliminate, delegate, automate, advocate, and increase reliance — to decrease time and resources devoted to SOX, with the ultimate goal of taking on more strategic audit, risk, and compliance work.

Learning Objectives: 

  • Discuss common pitfalls of internal controls and SOX programs.
  • Explore strategies and tactics to steer free from the common pitfalls and reduce your team’s time on SOX compliance.
  • Position your SOX program’s achievements for internal audit to take on more value-added activities.
