Meet SOX Compliance Requirements

The Sarbanes-Oxley (SOX) Act requires corporate financial disclosure for all public companies in the US. Enacted in 2002, it is meant to strengthen corporate responsibility and prevent corporate and accounting fraud.

Ensuring Transparency of Corporate Financial Operations

Accurate and Verifiable Corporate Disclosures

The Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002 (SOX) is a federal law that sets a list of requirements for all U.S. publicly traded company boards, management, and public accounting firms. The purpose of the legislation is to improve the accuracy and reliability of corporate disclosures.

Executive Responsibility, Corporate Audits

Sections 302 (“Corporate responsibility for financial reports”) and 404 (“Management assessment of internal controls”) are of particular interest to information professionals. 302 holds CEO and CFOs personally responsible for disclosure accuracy, while 404 requires corporations to have their internal controls audited and reported annually to the SEC.

Examples of Addressed SOX Compliance Requirements

The Information Technology Governance Institute (ITGI) has used COSO and COBIT frameworks to create a set of specific IT control objectives for SOX. The requirements below are an example of COSO / COBIT recommendations that apply to Cygna Auditor.
