The role of information technology in sustained regulatory compliance

A CICA whitepaper

As organizations look for ways to sustain their CEO/CFO certification compliance initiative, many are discovering how information technology (IT) can play a pivotal role. IT allows an organization to increase its reliance on automated key control activities, as well as to provide a reliable information process environment.

Leveraging lessons learned over the past 18-24 months, the authors of a new whitepaper  The Role of Information Technology in Sustained Regulatory Compliance  focus on:

  • The concept of sustained compliance
  • The importance of automated control activities
  • The role of IT in enabling reliance on automated control activities to help achieve an organization's compliance objectives

This paper was published by the Canadian Institute for Chartered Accountants' Information Technology Advisory Committee. Gary Baker, partner, and Christopher O'Connor, senior manager, of Deloitte's  Enterprise Risk practice, are two of the three principal authors of this whitepaper.
