This online video seminar is a complement to SOX and SOX North: Overview. It focuses on implementation issues related to changes in securities legislation and assurance standards. Specifically, it will address U.S. experience with section 404 of SOX and what that experience foretells for CSA NI 52-111. It describes strategies firms should consider when implementing internal controls over financial reporting. Finally, this video seminar discusses assurance-related issues that can lead to friction with a firm’s external auditors over SOX-related requirements. It is recommended to anyone who is associated with a public company or practitioners who provide non-audit services, along with their assurance services, to clients.
