The Sarbanes-Oxley Act (SOX) is almost 20 years old, entering the world of corporate governance in 2002. For years, compliance was seen as a significant burden for organizations—costly, time-consuming and a burden on operations. However, recent advances in digital technologies are smoothing the path to compliance. Improved visibility and transparency through automation is capable of delivering audit-compliant, documented and controlled financial accounting and reporting processes.
Join us for an intimate conversation with David Axson, the CFO Whisperer, who will discuss how technology can ease the compliance burden while also automating routine operations and allowing finance teams to focus on value-creating activities. Stay until the end to get your questions answered during our live Q&A!
