Sarbanes-Oxley and insider threats

by Rick Turoczy on March 16, 2006

Sarbanes-Oxley Act compliance should not be a distraction to security where the focus is on writing mountains of policies and procedures. It should, however, be used as a business differentiator, as an enabler for risk management and as a mechanism to use frameworks and certifications to better align business goals and process with security best practices. Nowhere is this more evident than issues surrounding insider threats.

There is a growing trend for information security budgets to be shared between traditional security projects and compliance-related agendas. This makes sense because the consequences of an insider threat, for example, parallel many of the concerns around Sarbanes-Oxley: loss of confidential or intellectual property, exposed sensitive information, damaged or destroyed assets, and severed communications.
