The Sarbanes-Oxley Act (SOX) was born from the ashes of major financial scandals involving such corporate giants as Enron, Arthur Andersen, Tyco, and WorldCom. Established in 2002, SOX is viewed as one of the most far-reaching pieces of U.S. securities legislation since the 1930s. Created to restore shareholder faith in public corporations, it has set forth mandates for the reliability of financial reporting.
For corporations, achieving compliance involves many people across multiple teams. Information security professionals play a key role in a company’s SOX compliance. Subsequently amended to include cybersecurity considerations, it recognizes the increasing importance of protecting people, systems, and data in pursuit of fair and transparent financial reporting.
