Spreadsheets are putting you and your organisation at risk. A recent survey of 109 organizations by research house GRC 20/20 found that 78% of respondents note that external auditors are applying harder standards to ensure compliance with the much tougher Public Company Accounting Oversight Board control requirements. So, while previously, minimal, typically manual, spreadsheet controls weren’t viewed as a SOX failing, today they are.
Join your industry peers, including Heads of Internal Audit, CFO’s and CRO’s, at a networking breakfast jointly hosted by ClusterSeven and Protiviti where there will be lively discussion on this pertinent topic. You will also have the opportunity to hear from a number of speakers including Michael Rassmussen, the GRC Pundit and author of the research paper ‘Gaining control over end user computing’. The discussion will follow the Chatham House rule allowing you to draw on the experiences of the group and debate the risks and impact emanating from unmanaged spreadsheets.
This event will take place on Friday 30th June at The Botanical Room, One Lombard Street, London from 8.30am to 10.00am.
