Understand the impact of Sarbanes-Oxley compliance on your disaster recovery plan

by Rick Turoczy on February 27, 2006

No discussion of disaster recovery (DR) and compliance issues would be complete without looking at the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002 (SOX). Originally designed to help avoid the irregular accounting situations made famous by companies like Enron, SOX was passed in 2002 to outline strict guidelines for financial reporting and disclosure for all public companies in the United States. The passage of this act affects much more than your financial reporting, however.

It also details guidelines for internal compliance operations to ensure that these reports can be created on time and accurately. The SOX requirements have serious implications for your DR planning.
