Section 404 requires companies to detail and attest to their internal controls. And cost-benefit debate related to complying with the provision has been widely reported, with executives of smaller public companies contending that they are unfairly burden by the law. While that may be true—or not—there is growing concern among executives within certain sectors that they too are being unfairly burdened by 404 compliance.
