KPMG's 404 Institute, an open forum for accounting professionals, has a two-part Webcast series in their archives for registered users on SOX compliance technology.

The first part of the Webcast, which took place July 27, featured chief auditor for St. Paul Travelers Insurance Co. Brian Reilly speaking on processes, decision factors and implementation considerations that drove his company's evaluation of its Section 404-related technology.

The second part of the Webcast occurred on Aug. 3 with Paul Hamerman, a senior analyst at Forrester Research, who moderated a panel discussion with IT software executives on current trends, leading practices and frequently asked questions about automating the Section 404 compliance process.

"Companies are focusing on turning their year-one compliance project into a sustainable program," said Steve Hill, a principal in KPMG's risk advisory services, in a statement. "As part of that evolution, companies are evaluating a lot of techniques, activities and structures as they design their ongoing compliance processes. The first critical step is to learn about the marketplace and how others have handled their own technology-enablement needs." The Webcast provides perspectives on considerations and criteria used to determine if software is the right investment this fiscal year; what criteria should be used to choose the right technology; practices and considerations for implementing and integrating 404 technologies; and tools available in the marketplace for companies seeking sustainable compliance.
