The twelfth annual Sarbanes-Oxley Compliance Survey, conducted by Protiviti with support from AuditBoard, found that rising SOX compliance hours coupled with the COVID-19 pandemic accelerated the continued need to deploy technology and automation within compliance processes as well as to look for synergies with other organizational initiatives to enable greater efficiencies.
The 2021 report, “SOX Compliance and the Promise of Technology and Automation,” provides insights into key findings from the survey, including a first ever examination of how “Digital Leaders” — organizations that have higher levels of maturity in the use of technology and innovative practices — approach their SOX compliance activities.
