Tuesday, January 21, 2020 -- Digital Transformation: A Case Study for SOX, Internal Audit & Compliance

Advancements in information technology and data management platforms enable compliance teams to collect, aggregate, and manage their unstructured and structured data in a single cloud environment, which serves as the single source of truth. Join our Northern Virginia IIA Chapter for an interactive case study on MicroStrategy’s recent implementation of the Workiva platform to optimize their Sarbanes-Oxley process, reduce risk, increase control, and enable insight across the business with connected compliance. Together we will share ideas to enhance collaboration in your organization and modernize your audit methodology with connected compliance.

Workiva provides a flexible, intuitive solution for SOX and internal controls, designed for companies of all sizes, with the ability to map controls to the frameworks your team uses, including COSO, COBiT, ISO 27001, NIST, and more. Connected data from ERP, CRM, and other systems enables the creation of accurate, up-to-date reports and presentations. Custom workspaces allow teams to work on the same document at the same time, improving collaboration and productivity. Wdesk delivers control, transparency, and efficiency to reporting processes.
