Certified Expert in Sarbanes-Oxley (SOX)

A comprehensive certificate program offering an in-depth look at important issues pertaining to Sarbanes-Oxley (SOX).

Since the passing of the Sarbanes-Oxley (SOX) legislation, compliance efforts have cost companies significant dollars. There is always a new twist or aspect that must be considered and embedded within the compliance process. Whether it be the new COSO 2013 framework, legislation dealing with fraud or pronouncements from the Public Companies and Accounting Oversight Board (PCAOB), individuals and organizations need a strong understanding of the techniques that are applicable to complying with the documentation, design evaluation, testing, and attestation requirements to comply with these critical Sections of the legislation.

SOX Section 302 and 404 are by far the most costly and time-consuming portions of the legislation. Organizations continue to spend millions of dollars on compliance efforts; non-compliance can result in SEC fines, sanctions and even criminal indictments. It is crucial that organizations continue to learn and evolve their SOX 404 and 302 processes and maintain an ongoing understanding of the many dynamics that impact the legislation requirements.

Understanding the basics behind the full legislation as well as the powers of the governing bodies (SEC and PCAOB) are critical components of ensuring your organization complies with the Sarbanes-Oxley legislation. It is not enough to simply focus on the most prominent sections of the legislation (Section 302 and 404), organizations must be aware of all compliance requirements and stay abreast of the actions of the SEC and PCAOB in regards to compliance efforts.

Any professional in today’s evolving business world will benefit from this timely credential. The Sarbanes-Oxley legislation has been a key to many new business and financial processes. All organizations, regardless of their status as a publicly-traded company or privately held company, have looked towards the legislation requirements as a “leading practice” in financial reporting. This credential will establish the learner as an expert within the field of Sarbanes-Oxley section 302 and 404 as well as overall standards and compliance with the legislation.
