Five questions that can transform your SOX compliance

Sue King shares how to reinvigorate value, efficiency, and effectiveness around Sarbanes-Oxley (SOX) compliance.

Achieving Sarbanes-Oxley (SOX) compliance is a tedious and time consuming requirement. One that involves external auditors, internal control owners, technology and document management, targeted testing, and tailored reporting.

So it’s no wonder that many companies struggle to meet the challenges of increased regulatory compliance while simultaneously focusing on core business issues and cost reduction in a challenging marketplace.

Sue King, a partner in KPMG’s Internal Audit and Enterprise Risk practice, has advised clients from Fortune 1000 companies to pre-IPO companies on the full spectrum of internal audit services. In this podcast, she discusses how asking the following five questions can help companies reinvigorate value, efficiency, and effectiveness around SOX compliance.

  • Are you sure that you have the appropriate SOX strategy?
  • Do you struggle to address your external auditor’s difficult risk and control questions?
  • Are you unable to leverage or are you missing out on leading practices and technological innovations?
  • Is your SOX program testing too cumbersome? Is it taking too long?
  • Has your program lost sight of the purpose of SOX testing?
