Hosts the 2013 COSO UPDATE
Trainer-- Sonia Luna, CPA, CIA; founder of AVIVA Spectrum
Sonia spent 12 years with Arthur Andersen LLP, was a Manager at Ernst & Young LLP,, and  a Senior Consultant at Singer Lewak, a Los Angeles-based CPA firm. In 2004 Sonia founded Aviva Spectrum, a highly specialized management consulting firm headquartered in Los Angeles, California with affiliate offices overseas. 

Aviva’s mission is helping U.S. stock exchange-listed, government and privately-held organizations improve their understanding and application of the tenets of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002. In practice, this vision of leadership materialized into a unique compliance methodology supported by two titanic guiding frameworks: COSO and CobIT, which help organizations mitigate risk while maximizing overall shareholder value.  Since the 2013 COSO revision, Sonia has been putting on webinars and training focused on those changes.

Sonia earned a Bachelor of Science Degree in Accounting from the California State University at Northridge, California.   Sonia’s current professional affiliation memberships include the Institute of Internal Auditors, ISACA, the American Institute of Certified Professional Accountants and the California Society of Certified Public Accountants.
