Executive Search Firm Venerable Partners Hosts Client Conference: The Information Officer in the Age of Sarbanes-Oxley

    /24-7PressRelease/ - CHICAGO, IL, November 23, 2006 - Venerable Partners, LLC announced today that it will host a client conference that will address Sarbanes-Oxley's impact on the role of the Chief Information Officer. This conference is by invitation only and will take place at the offices of Venerable Partners on Wednesday, March 8, 2007.

"Along with the Chief Executive Officer and the Chief Financial Officer, Sarbanes-Oxley is requiring the leadership of the information systems function within organizations to thoroughly reevaluate business processes at every corner of the corporation. More and more, Chief Information Officers are being asked to become the guarantor's of business process implemented. With the introduction of Sarbanes-Oxley, Chief Information Officers are facing pressure never seen before to ensure accountability for the systems that support financial reporting, sales - including call centers and Internet sales channels, billing operations, and outsourced information technology operations. Arguably, for the first time, activities within the office of the Chief Information Officer are invoking board-level risk. In many organizations, Chief Information Officers are discovering that they are now sharing in an organization's overall legal and financial risk. The challenge facing most organizations is that many senior information systems executives do not possess the required business orientation and analytical skills required to effectively lead and manage in the Age of Sarbanes-Oxley. Chief Executives must ask themselves to what degree they will involve their Chief Information Officers on their company's Sarbanes-Oxley Section 404 project team and whether or not they will require their information officers to provide signed, quarterly certification on the company's quarterly Section 302 certification." said Donald Law, Managing Director, Venerable Partners.
