Former SEC Chairman Arthur Levitt Sheds Light on Compliance, Sarbanes-Oxley and the Importance of an Investigative Infrastructure

by Rick Turoczy on June 29, 2006

Guidance Software, Inc., the world leader in computer investigations, brought New York’s top financial minds together on Wednesday night to discuss compliance, Sarbanes-Oxley and how corporations can navigate the sea of regulations governing today’s market. The executive dinner, hosted at the Waldorf Astoria, showcased best practices and tools for cutting-edge reporting, information management and network-wide auditing capabilities.

Featured experts included: Arthur Levitt, former chairman of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission and a pioneer in the area of corporate accountability; Kathleen O’Neil, Guidance Software board member, risk management advisor and former executive at the Federal Reserve Bank of New York; and Brian Karney, director of product management at Guidance Software.

Speakers discussed how companies can manage risk associated with compliance and how, in the current climate, it is more important than ever for corporations to have a firm grasp on what the federal government expects of them. Best practices and tools showcased at the event included the EnCaseĀ® Enterprise investigative infrastructure and how it maps to the requirements of current and future regulations to reduce risk. Often, after the passage of a new regulation, corporations are left to decipher what a new regulation is and how it will impact them. Ultimately, application and adherence to that regulation will require the ability to analyze and preserve large amounts of data in a court-accepted manner.

“This event provided a rare opportunity for some of the industries largest financial institutions to hear from respected experts on the state of the current regulatory environment and how it will impact them in the long and short term,” said John Colbert, Guidance Software CEO. “There is no question that the regulatory environment will continue to evolve towards greater transparency and corporate responsibility, and the only way corporations are going to be able to manage risk and compliance in a changing regulatory environment is to invest in technologies and best practices that streamline their processes of identifying and remediating risk.”
