Sarbanes-Oxley Planning

Having studied the other pages on this website, even if you are considering using an external consultant or legal expert to help, it is well worth taking a few basic steps to enhance your position immediately. This not only demonstrates due diligence, but may well reduce the overall consultancy costs themselves. Self-compliance however, will almost certainly be the most common aproach, in which case it is important to ensure that nothing is left to chance.

One area that falls into the self-help category is perhaps security. In many respects security underpins some of the requirements of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act. It is therefore important to quickly establish a credible and detailed security policy, which can often be done readily via off the shelf packages.

Finally, perhaps the most important statement on the entire website: do NOT put off until tomorrow what can be done today!

With other legislation and regulation we have seen organizations leave compliance until the last few days far too often, and subsequently suffer adverse consequences.
