COSO has developed a new guidance that would improve the quality of the internal control systems of organizations including those that are using the financial reporting system in compliance with Section 404 of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002. Released during the first quarter of 2008, the guidance will result in a more efficient financial and operational reporting system of affected companies. It is strongly advised that they be familiar with this new system since they are the first ones who will benefit from it.
The Knowledge Congress has assembled a panel of distinguished experts from well-known accounting and auditing firms, key regulators, and industry leaders to provide the Finance & Internal Controls professionals with a first look at the substantial features of the new guidance. The panelists are scheduled to speak in a two-hour teleconference and webinar.
