Sarbanes-Oxley (SOX) Act of 2002 Training

To enhance your teams knowledge of SOX through general courses and frequent updates on relevant SOX developments


Who might be needing this training?

Companies adhering to SOX due to regulatory listings on a US stock exchange or who are in the process of implementing SOX within their organization and need to enhance their fundamental knowledge of the topic.  For a Company transitioning to SOX, all members of the accounting and finance organization, and perhaps even beyond, will be impacted through involvement in the execution and internal assessment of SOX controls.  In addition, we see a trend that may result in more countries beyond just the United States requiring some sort of controls framework in organizations.Typically, this framework is based on the 17 Principles of the COSO Framework.

Why SOX training?

Our training program is designed to provide your organization with the skills and foundational knowledge to understand and support SOX compliance.  It is addressed to professionals in risk and compliance management, control operators, and those individuals internal to your organization who test and monitor the effectiveness of your Company’s SOX controls. 

Joining this training program will provide you with the opportunity to interact with PwC’s experts within the CEE region who have spent the majority of their careers working on SOX compliance.
