Gartner on Sarbanes-Oxley: The Role of Technology

by Rick Turoczy on October 5, 2004

Sarbanes-Oxley does not regulate technology; however, using technology effectively can reduce the cost, time and risk of an enterprise’s compliance activities. The U.S. Public Company Accounting Reform and Investor Protection Act of 2002 (the Sarbanes-Oxley Act) is not about technology.

Sarbanes-Oxley is about improving transparency and accountability in business processes and corporate accounting to restore confidence in public markets. It regulates processes and business practices, not technology. In the modern enterprise, however, technology often defines and executes business processes or parts of business processes. The technology and business process regulated by Sarbanes-Oxley are so entwined that it’s impossible to separate them.
