Pleasant Grove, UT (PRWEB) April 8, 2004 -
Net EndeavorÂ, Inc., a leading provider of assessment technology, announced today that LandAmerica Financial Group (NYSE:LFG) has chosen Net EndeavorÂs CertiSphereÂ-SOX internal controls assessment solution to assess the effectiveness of LandAmericaÂs internal controls across more than 800 offices throughout the United States, Mexico, Canada, the Caribbean, and Latin America.
"IÂd like to welcome LandAmerica as a Net Endeavor customer and also congratulate them on being recently named one of AmericaÂs Most Admired Companies by FORTUNE Magazine.Â said Jeff Hunt, Vice President of Global Sales & Marketing at Net Endeavor. ÂWeÂre proud that CertiSphere-SOX was selected as LandAmericaÂs Sarbanes-Oxley section 404 assessment tool.Â
Sarbanes Oxley Section 404 requires Chief Financial Officers and Chief Executive Officers to certify that their internal controls are sufficient to assure the integrity of their financial reporting. Sarbanes-Oxley mandates that a companyÂs independent auditor attest to managementÂs assertion concerning their internal controls. For most businesses, Sarbanes-Oxley necessitates a significant effort in risk assessment, identification/documentation of processes and controls and testing and remediation for every business line, division and/or location. Internal testing must be conducted prior to auditor testing to ensure an unconditional assessment of audited financial statements and the certifying executives must have reasonable personal knowledge of the assessment and have substantiating evidence to back the internal controls attestation.
