VigilantMinds First to Offer SOX Pre-Audit Assessment

by Rick Turoczy on January 17, 2005

VigilantMinds Inc., a leader of “best-fit” managed security solutions, today announced the availability of its SOX Readiness Program consisting of pre-audit security assessments specifically designed to help companies prepare for Sarbanes-Oxley (SOX) audits.

Designed to protect investors and increase corporate accountability, the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002 was enacted in the wake of Enron and requires external audits to certify the integrity of financial data and an annual assessment to verify the security of IT systems.

“By having VigilantMinds conduct a security assessment before the compliance audit, our clients are able to establish a standard of due care and build a defensible case for internal controls and implementation decisions,” says Dave Keener, chief security officer, VigilantMinds. “Essentially, a pre-audit alleviates the stress associated with compliance audits and being prepared before the audit shortens the time it takes to get through it.”

VigilantMinds will host a Sox Compliance Seminar on January 20, 2005 at Phipps Conservatory in Pittsburgh. Speakers include David Ries, Esq., of Thorp Reed & Armstrong; Tracy Brown, director of information security for American Eagle Outfitters; and Dave Keener, chief security officer of VigilantMinds.
