Dec 12, 2011


Security via SOX Compliance

Achieving compliance with Sarbanes-Oxley requirements remains a chief chore for all publicly traded companies—and a chief budget driver for IT compliance and security initiatives. Yet SOX’s computer security requirements remain vague, and auditors’ evaluations continue to be subjective. What are the latest best practices for meeting the security requirements under Sarbanes-Oxley? What are the best ways to maintain compliance over time? Are there new ways of automating compliance efforts? In this report, we offer an updated look at the security elements in SOX compliance initiatives and how to keep your company up to date and ready to pass the next audit. We also discuss the ways in which SOX compliance initiatives (and budget dollars) can be used to drive broader security efforts within the enterprise. (S3831211)
