Whether your company is preparing for its first IPO or an established listed entity, compliance with Sarbanes-Oxley (SOX) can be costly and time-consuming; Tickmarks can develop a top-down, risk-based approach to SOX and other compliance obligations in alignment with your business structure and activities.
In the past, SOX has always had a bottom-up, “what might go wrong” approach; today, it is a more focused, top-down approach that emphasizes the need for controls.
At Tickmarks, we apply a top-down, COSO approach that helps in driving effectiveness and efficiency into the SOX programs. It helps to ensure that the risks are properly identified at the right time, and the controls and vital processes are applied to mitigate those risks quickly.
Though many companies seem to have the “perfect-sized” SOX programs, there are still many companies that do not use the best tools to improve and automate their processes. Tickmarks will work with you to offer you the perfect SOX solution that suits your needs the best. Be it a one-time project or an ongoing outsourcing engagement; we are always there to assist you.
Today’s senior executives and audit committees are using the internal audit process as a way to not just assess quality but to drive value throughout the entire organization. In addition to the unique risks within each country and geographical region, many local regulations must also be complied with.
With extensive experience in both domestic and international IT regulations, our effective internal audit gives you the assurance that your organization works as it should. It also provides you an early warning about emerging risks and opportunities.
We have developed our customized audit strategies that address risks and enhance business performance. The Tickmarks internal audit outsourcing methodology focuses only on your organization’s goals and mission.
