Although SOX has become business as usual for many organizations with some efficiencies gained with the application of the new AS5 standards, many organizations continue to operate SOX programs and processes independently from their other risk management, governance and compliance initiatives. AS5 emphasizes the integration of the financial statement audit with the audit of internal controls for financial reporting (SOX) for public accountants, thereby encouraging the same integration of an organization's risk and control management processes. Where are the opportunities for streamlining and integrating risk and control management processes and how does an organization move SOX from a separate program to an integrated aspect of a larger risk and control program?

Key take-away points:

The three "must-haves" to take SOX from a one-time project to an ongoing sustainable cost-effective process.
How can you leverage AS 5 not just for SOX, but to create a culture of "Integrated GRC"?
Thinking about Technology? Five questions you must ask any vendor before you pay a dime for "SOX/GRC software/hardware"
