    Risk Consulting Leader to Address Year One Compliance

    MENLO PARK, Calif., July 10 /CNW/ --
    

    
    WHAT:  Join experts from Protiviti - a leading global provider of
           independent risk consulting and internal audit services - for a
           webinar that delves into J-SOX requirements and offers suggested
           approaches to compliance for subsidiaries of Japanese public
           companies.
    

    
           On June 24, 2008 Japan's Financial Services Agency (FSA) issued a
           new list of 47 questions and answers in order to respond to the
           questions from these affected corporations and their subsidiaries
           and to minimize last minute confusion during their initial year of
           J-SOX compliance.
    

    
           Please join Protiviti for its 6th J-SOX online seminar. We will
           discuss:
    

    
           (*)  Background of the FSA's new Q&A document
           (*)  Q&A related to management's assessment
           (*)  Q&A related to audit procedures
           (*)  How foreign subsidiaries may utilize the information in the Q&A
              document
    

    
           Nearly 4,000 Tokyo Stock Exchange-listed Japanese companies and
           their significant subsidiaries and affiliates around the world fall
           under the J-SOX mandate and are in Year One of J-SOX compliance.
           Compliance requirements are effective for fiscal years beginning on
           or after April 1, 2008. While some subsidiaries have completed the
           preparation and are ready to perform the initial year testing,
           other companies are just starting the compliance effort.
    

    
    WHEN:  Tuesday, July 15 2008, 11:00 AM PDT/1:00 PM CDT/2:00 PM EDT
    

    
    WHO:   Paul Sachs, Protiviti managing director and member of the company's
           J-SOX Compliance and Risk Management Solution senior leadership
           team, will lead the webinar.
    

    
           Protiviti has been working with Japanese organizations since 2006
           on their J-SOX compliance efforts and has assisted thousands of
           companies worldwide with Sarbanes-Oxley compliance.
