    Implications of Sarbanes-Oxley Section 404 - Compliance Strategies to Evaluate Internal Control Effectiveness



    Section 404 continues to pose a problem for many organizations. How can investor protection be maintained in the most time- and cost-saving way? How can you best identify risk areas to focus on when assessing the effectiveness of controls? Join us for an exclusive presentation from Scott Taub, Acting Chief Accountant for the Securities & Exchange Commission. Mr Taub will discuss common areas of concern in Section 404 compliance and offer recommendations to meet compliance goals.

    Take away points include:

    • Establishing and maintaining your internal control mechanisms
    • Reviewing recommendations on how to minimize risk and costs
    • Recent PCAOB / SEC recommendations on unifying compliance and financial audits


    • CFOs
    • CTOs
    • CAOs
    • CIOs
    • VPs & Directors of Finance
    • Controllers
    • Compliance Officers

    And any other personnel involved with reporting systems.

    Securities and Exchange Commission Chairman Christopher Cox has designated Scott Taub to serve as Acting Chief Accountant for the SEC due to the departure of the SEC’s Chief Accountant Donald Nicolaisen.

Prior to his most recent service with the SEC, Taub was a partner in the Professional Standards Group of Arthur Andersen in Chicago. Seven of Taub’s years at Andersen were spent in its Detroit office where he was an experienced manager in the audit practice. From June 1999 through June 2001, Taub served as a professional accounting fellow with the SEC’s Office of Chief Accountant.
