Everything You Need to Know About the Sarbanes-Oxley Act--What It Is, What Your Company Must Do to Comply, and More
The Sarbanes-Oxley Act is unquestionably important to corporate America. It can also be complex and confusing, for everyone from the employees who must be doubly aware of what they can--and cannot--do to the officers who must take legal responsibility for the actions, errors, and omissions of those employees.
What is Sarbanes-Oxley? provides you with a plain-English overview of the Act to help ensure that your firm achieves and maintains top-to-bottom Sarbanes-Oxley Act (SOA) compliance. Written in clear, concise, and readable language, with helpful checklists so that no requirements are overlooked, this SOA primer covers:
- Guidelines for ensuring that your company's policies, procedures, systems, and controls are Sarbanes-Oxley compliant
- Management certification responsibilities--and noncompliance penalties--under Sections 302, 404, and 906
- Techniques for modifying existing control systems and programs to meet new SOA specifications
Today's most competitive corporations--rather than view Sarbanes-Oxley as a painful and costly-to-implement headache--are using SOA as an opportunity to both revitalize their business practices and strengthen their competitive positions.
