THE SEC DEADLINE TO COMPLY WITH SARBANES-OXLEY IS NEAR

 HOW TO DEVELOP A DETAILED PLAN OF ACTION TO COMPLY WITH SARBANES-OXLEY

NEW ONE-DAY INTENSIVE SEMINAR

Location/Date: - Boston: November 3, 2005 -- San Francisco: November 9, 2005

Learn how to prepare a comprehensive plan of action to achieve Sarbanes-Oxley compliance using a top-down strategy - Emphasis on Small to medium organizations that must become compliant during 2005-2006

 

Smaller and international organizations must comply by 2006 but their compliance efforts must be underway during 2005

Sarbanes-Oxley makes senior management, CFOs, and board members directly accountable for the accuracy and integrity of financial reporting.  

Under this law public US companies and  global companies with US operations are directly impacted.    Even non-public organizations that deal with public financial institutions may also need to comply. Compliance by the deadline is not optional.  It is a must.

Achieving compliance involves employees from many functional groups that generate data for financial reporting, including  CIOs, IT and business operations personnel.

The key to effective compliance is to develop a comprehensive Action Plan that considers all the key modules and a set of action steps required to develop a process for compliance to meet the deadline and to help your company maintain compliance thereafter.  This is because Sarbanes-Oxley is not a one time project but has ongoing operational implications

This PRACTICAL “HOW-TO” seminar focuses on how to prepare a specific plan of action to  enable you to achieve Sarbanes-Oxley compliance using a top-down approach and a COSO-based internal control framework as suggested by the Securities and Exchange Commission.

This unique seminar will save you development time and will benefit:
