Your organization benefits from Baker Tilly’s deep knowledge of how your information technology (IT) systems contribute to an overall SOX-compliant environment. We work collaboratively with your external auditor and help you avoid common pitfalls.

    Bringing industry-leading expertise to your IT SOX compliance efforts.

    SOX compliance demands rigor and attention to detail to facilitate a streamlined and efficient control environment. Achieving this level of compliance requires reliable controls of systems and data. Organizations need resources and IT expertise in a strategic collaborator to bring a nuanced understanding of all SOX-related aspects, along with a fresh perspective tailored to the organization’s needs.

    Baker Tilly can plug into your existing program seamlessly by combining IT and business process control knowledge to support your SOX compliance program. We do more than test information technology general controls (ITGC). Our team has extensive experience transitioning from prior service providers efficiently and effectively to ensure your IT SOX program proceeds smoothly, with timely, higher-quality results and comprehensive testing that supports an external audit reliance approach.

    Many organizations find that insourcing IT SOX talent is cost prohibitive. At Baker Tilly, we work closely alongside internal resources and become an extension of your team, providing you with an experienced team in a flexible and cost-effective manner.

    Working well with the external audit firm is also essential in SOX compliance. We understand PCAOB auditing standards and the methodology of other firms, helping us to build great relationships with your external auditors so that we are aligned early on.
