Sarbanes-Oxley makes senior management, CFOs, and board members directly accountable for the accuracy and integrity of financial reporting.
Under this law public US companies and global companies with US operations are directly impacted. Even non-public organizations that deal with public financial institutions may also need to comply. Compliance by the deadline is not optional. It is a must.
Achieving compliance involves employees from many functional groups that generate data for financial reporting, including CIOs, IT and business operations personnel.
The key to effective compliance is to develop a comprehensive Action Plan that considers all the key modules and a set of action steps required to develop a process for compliance to meet the deadline and to help your company maintain compliance thereafter. This is because Sarbanes-Oxley is not a one time project but has ongoing operational implications
