Sarbanes-Oxley (SOX) Compliance
Congress passed the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002 largely to protect investors by improving the accuracy and reliability of corporate disclosures. The Sarbanes-Oxley Act imposes penalties that require management to certify and demonstrate that they have established security controls to safeguard financial information. While beneficial to the investing public, thousands of companies now face the task of ensuring their operations are Sarbanes-Oxley compliant.
SAINT's SOX scanning policy and SOX report template support financial organizations’ internal risk management strategies by facilitating provisions in Section 404 of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act, which require an annual management report on the effectiveness of internal controls for financial reporting and that external auditors confirm management’s assessment.
