This week on Office Hours (https://officehou.rs), hosts Kevin Legere and Dan Zitting discuss third party risk management by looking at a situation where contract risk/vendor risk led to several very large organizations being substantially over-billed and the vendor itself having to restate its financial statements after rectifying the issue. We'll dig into how it happened and using "big data" to identify and resolve the issue.
This week on Office Hours, our first guest host, the mad genius Phil Lim, joins Dan Zitting to talk about the Paradise Papers... what they mean and how an organization he worked with was interested in using the data compiled from them to look at potential risk indicators fraud or corruption. Phil actually uses the real data with real US government spending data to show how the process looks to evaluate red flags.
This week on Office Hours, our hosts, Dan Zitting and Kevin Legere, talk about having a plan and roadmap for SOX that will differentiate the value your program delivers. Most companies have basic SOX testing nailed down by now, but it's still far too manual and far too inefficient. These types of SOX programs are growing stale - we need a roadmap to better value. Additionally, robotic automation is coming to SOX programs, so we can either be the ones building the automation or the ones being automated. This episode lays out the maturity curve and gives real examples to push toward getting there.
