SOX 404 ITGC Testing
Cornerstone provides testing and remediation services as an outsourced internal auditor. As an outsourced internal audit team, we are comfortable using the client’s control framework (COBIT, NIST). However, we can also provide a control structure based on over 30 years of experience with external auditors.
Our IT SOX 404 Controls Testing follows a simple process:
- Scoping of Systems and Controls
- Evidence Collection
We pride ourselves in aligning with the other audit teams for collaboration while maintaining independence to reduce the strain on the business contacts.
