Sarbanes-Oxley (SOX) Compliance Solutions from SoftLanding Systems, Inc.

by Rick Turoczy on September 13, 2004

“TurnOver and SoftMenu played a big part in our preparations for Sarbanes-Oxley compliance. They’re always very strong during audits — they’re never challenged.”

— Jerry Bell, Director of Systems Development, Oshkosh B’Gosh Inc.

In 2002, the United States Congress passed the Sarbanes-Oxley Act (SOX) requiring all public companies conducting business in the United States to have financial control systems in place and operational by November 15, 2004 (or July 15, 2005 if the capital valuation is less than $75M).

These systems are meant to minimize the possibility of “cookin’ the books” by, among other things, tracking what changes have been made to data and software, who made them, and when. What’s more, CEOs/CFOs must certify quarterly that these controls are in place and functional, and annual reports must include validation of those controls by outside auditors.
