Boca Raton, FL (PRWEB) March 27, 2006 -–
The rise and fall of Enron vividly illustrates two of the most critical challenges facing public companies as a result of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002 (SOX) – the development and implementation of effective internal controls and the role of whistleblowers in today’s corporate environment. These and other significant corporate governance considerations are addressed in the most recent issue of The SOX Report, which is now available online at http://www.goldsteinlewin.com/soxwinter2006.pdf.
The SOX Report is a free quarterly newsletter with “must read” articles for public corporations, private companies, not-for-profit organizations, attorneys, accountants, and others who are or who may be impacted by the Sarbanes-Oxley Act. Additional articles in this issue include a prediction that second-year SOX costs will decrease and a discussion of the emerging role of Boards of Directors in the post-SOX regulatory environment.
According to Paul Feuerberg, CPA, Audit Partner with Goldstein Lewin, “Identifying and correcting material weaknesses are among the most complex requirements of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act. While it may seem that corporate material weaknesses have mushroomed in the past few years, the reality is that public companies and their auditors are more diligently searching for and reporting these lapses in internal controls.”
Mr. Feuerberg, who is licensed to practice in the states of Florida and New York, has 35 years of experience including 25 as an Audit Partner. He provides audit services to public, private, and non-profit entities and has extensive experience in SEC offerings and reporting as well as for other regulatory filings.
