Cloud & Regulatory Compliance


Cloud & Regulatory Compliance

Every day, organizations are recognizing and adopting the cloud for its elastic, affordable, and mobile capabilities. As leaders think of their new, cutting edge IT infrastructure in the cloud, they also need to consider their internal control environment (including Sarbanes-Oxley compliance) and how it is impacted by moving to the cloud.  For fast growing, Pre-IPO companies, ensuring internal controls related to financial reporting comply with all aspects of the SOX Act is critical. There is increasing evidence that the state of a company’s internal control environment is something that the investment community is watching more closely.

The process of migrating to the cloud is one that takes a lot of the same steps as ensuring your internal controls are SOX compliant. If SOX compliance is kept in mind during a cloud application implementation, you can save yourself tremendous time and money by not repeating or re-doing overlapping activities.

Armanino has developed a comprehensive yet cost-effective approach to ensuring that your internal controls related to financial reporting comply with aspects of the SOX Act. Experience has taught us that unfocused interpretation and broad application of SOX is costly, arduous and frustrating to management, shareholders and regulators. Too many companies unilaterally document and test all controls though this is not usually necessary.

Armanino's approach is different. We don't waste your time and resources on unnecessary tasks. Instead, we tackle SOX with a risk-based approach focusing of a set of key controls that is both sufficient and consistent with the original intent of SOX.

Further, we employ a unique multidisciplinary approach to help you address all of the crucial factors intrinsic to the success of your internal control infrastructure, including process, technology and personnel elements. Our team has the dexterity to help you streamline compliance without diminishing control integrity.

With over 200+ successful projects and 12 years of experience under our belt, we can save you time and money by quickly and correctly being able to identify your needs and applying our industry expertise and methodology to your organization.
