Sarbanes-Oxley compliance (SOX) once was thought to be a relatively static, predictable process that organizations could rely on to be routine and, for the most part, static. Yet market and regulatory changes continue to make this a more dynamic process, with costs and hours continuing to rise for many organizations. More organizations are recognizing the benefits of their compliance efforts through improved internal control structure and business processes.
Protiviti's annual Sarbanes-Oxley compliance survey looks deeply into areas including costs, hours and control environments of a broad spectrum of organizations. In this podcast, Protiviti Executive Vice President Brian Christensen discusses some of the key findings from Protiviti’s 2016 Sarbanes-Oxley Compliance Survey. There are substantial differences based on company size, industry and SOX experience; many see significant value in their Sarbanes-Oxley compliance efforts.
