Webinar- Overview of Sarbanes-Oxley Act (SOX)

 

In light of the financial scandals that occurred at Enron, WorldCom, Xerox & Tyco among others during the period 2000-2002, the United States Congress passed the Sarbanes-Oxley Act (SOX) in the year 2002 to establish investor’s confidence in the corporate governance & financial reporting process. SOX applies to all publicly traded companies in the United States as well as wholly-owned subsidiaries & foreign companies that are publicly traded & do business in the United States.

Considering the mandatory compliance requirement & specific control requirements, proper understanding creates value for both an individual & the organization they represent. This webinar has been devised to help the participants understand, improve & enhance their knowledge in Sarbanes-Oxley compliance & its benefits with reference to Indian Companies. The content of the webinar includes: Why SOX, What is SOX, Important Sections of SOX, Punitive Provisions, Compliance Methodology, Influence of SOX on Indian Companies, Benefit of SOX, and RiskPro assistance in SOX.
