Automating SOX control testing: How to get started, demonstrate ROI, and expand impact

Watch now

SOX and audit teams are increasingly automating control testing with analytics and robotics to increase productivity and coverage. This also reduces costs that can stem from fraud, non-compliance, and manual processes.

Join us for this 60-minute webinar where Tom Keaton, Director of Internal Audit at Crown Castle, will share insights on how he introduced automated testing of 16 SOX controls in year one, the successes within the first year of implementation, the challenges his team overcame, and his vision of where to take control automation next.

You’ll also learn:

  • How to build a business case for automated control testing and gain buy-in from stakeholders
  • Considerations for where to first introduce automated control testing
  • How to build on early wins and expand your program to areas of larger ROI
  • Which skills to build within your team and how to establish partnerships with internal customers
