Governance, Risk & Compliance (GRC)
Nasdaq Proposes Change to Require Internal Audit Function
The NASDAQ Stock Market has proposed a new rule that would require companies listed on its exchange to establish and maintain an internal audit function, a move similar to the one made by the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) in 2003 after the signing of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002 (SOX).
About our Services
Few pieces of legislation have had such far reaching impact on the business community as the Sarbanes Oxley Act of 2002 (SOX). With management now personally accountable for establishing a system of internal controls over financial reporting and for creating a proper "tone at the top," SOX has transformed the way public and private entities do business.
