Virtual Panel with KPMG: COVID-19 and a Virtual Close – How This Will Impact Your Audit and Cybersecurity

A consistent, common technology effective platform that maintains your controls is critical. Companies will definitely continue to look for ways to streamline processes through automating, which will enable companies to capture, integrate and use critical data in real time, improving the execution of crisis and incident response plans. – Tamara Nolan, KPMG

Due to COVID-19, many finance & accounting (F&A) teams across the globe are navigating unchartered waters as they approach the next close cycle with a dispersed, remote workforce. Now, more than ever, standardization, automation, visibility across the organization and access to real-time insights are essential to run your business. But how will this new “normal” affect your next audit and the overall security of your financial data?

  • How this current pandemic is exposing gaps in organizations’ financial close processes
  • How this new way of working will affect your next audit cycle
  • How to ensure the overall security of your financial data in this remote environment
  • How technology can create a real opportunity for organizations to create a highly efficient and effective Record to Report service delivery model
