Join us for an informative discussion on how companies can leverage compliance with the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002 to gain strategic advantage.
Initial SOX compliance has been painful. Many organizations have invested significant time and money in their efforts. As companies finish their second year of SOX compliance, they are realizing that they have embarked on a governance journey to gain strategic value from compliance. Companies in the forefront of this journey are leveraging technology to move from passive to active compliance in order to gain greater transparency through more accurate, reliable and timely financial and business information.
This seminar features Chrisan Herrod, Chief Security Officer at the U.S. Securities & Exchange Commission, who will address how you can gain strategic advantage from your SOX and other compliance initiatives.
