Chicago, IL (PRWEB) May 01, 2013
Companies face greater and greater internal and external threats. Internal controls and corporate governance can assist organizations in mitigating certain risks and positioning them to take advantage of new opportunities. Sarbanes-Oxley (SOX) principles can act as a framework to assist companies in achieving strong corporate governance and internal controls.
Baker Tilly Virchow Krause (Baker Tilly) has published an educational article, "Why all companies should embrace certain SOX principles," to help executives understand the benefits of implementing SOX practices across their organization.
"Managing your organization’s risk is essential in today’s business environment," said Christine Anderson, CPA, CITP, Managing Partner - Assurance, and Financial Services Industry Leader at Baker Tilly. "SOX principles can help companies to understand and mitigate risk in their organization."
Why all companies should embrace certain SOX principles is available on the Baker Tilly website and includes information on the following:
> Recent changes from the Committee of Sponsoring Organizations of the Treadway Commissions (COSO) to SOX implementation
> Benefits of implementation to private companies including risk assessments with a focus on financial reporting, documentation of processes, and determining design deficiencies and operating deficiencies
