It is estimated that companies will spend close to $15.5 billion on compliance-related activities this year.* Also estimated is the fact that the total tab for compliance-related spending over the next five years will be $80 billion. And all the while, there are those to whom we must stay beholden: the stockholders.

As new regulations are constantly added or updated, and deadlines approach quickly, businesses must enforce compliance at every level of the organization or risk irreversible damage to the reputation of the company. Even as we believe headway is being made in this uphill battle, new deadlines, dates and mandates are published; and the cycle perpetuates itself once again.

And this affects divisions across the board. Everyone from finance to information technology has a stake in the sink-or-swim mentality of SOX compliance.

If we are truly exerting this kind of man power and expenditure on compliance, we must begin to understand:
1. What departments and processes are involved
2. What changes and implementations are truly necessary
3. How we can capitalize on these mandatory regulations to improve current business efficiencies while staying true to involved stakeholders

This two day conference will address current and central topics to compliance with up-to-date rules and regulations. Join industry leaders who will share their experiences in the implementation and integration of technologies to streamline their compliance processes. When $80 billion in budgetary expense is at stake, you literally can’t afford to miss this event.
