KPMG Webcast Explores Section 404 Compliance and Sustainability

KPMG is offering a two-part webcast series for individuals and companies interested in exploring the role technology plays in sustaining regulatory compliance.

“Companies are focusing on turning their year-one compliance into a sustainable program. As part of that evolution, companies are evaluating a lot of techniques, activities and structures as they design their ongoing compliance processes. Technology enablement, a key element under consideration, encompasses many issues that will need evaluation. The first critical step is to learn about the marketplace and how others have handled their own technology-enablement needs,” says Steve Hill, a principal in KPMG’s Risk Advisory Services.

The next webcast will be held on Wednesday, August 3 at 2:00 p.m. EST. The “Dialogue with Section 404 Enablers” will be a panel discussion on the current trends, leading practices and frequently asked questions about automating the Section 404 compliance process with information technology (IT) software executives moderated by Forrester Research Senior Analyst Paul Hamerman. Participants will be able to pose questions to panelists. Registration is free at the 404 Institute web site.

The first webcast occurred Wednesday, July 27 and covered the technology selection process. Featured speaker Brian Reilly, chief auditor for St. Paul Travelers Insurance Company discussed the processes, decision factors and implementation considerations driving his company’s evaluation and selection of Section 404-related technology. A pre-recorded version of this and other webcasts from KPMG is available from the 404 Institute web site.
