Sarbanes-Oxley: IT pros may not like it but they still need to comply

Sarbanes-Oxley: IT pros may not like it but they still need to comply

by Rick Turoczy on June 27, 2006

IT professionals have the grim responsibility of coming to grips with Sarbanes-Oxley and other government regulations and then determining how their IT infrastructure needs to adapt to meet these requirements.

This chapter from AIIM’s Information Nation Warrior: Information Management Compliance Boot Camp shows why compliance is so important and provides examples of what good compliance looks like, as well as examples of organizations that didn’t comply and the consequences they faced. This chapter also provides a quotient for responsiveness and a quotient for demonstrating good faith.

As the opening of this chapter states, “When the courts or regulators come knocking, failing to comply is not an option. When the law changes, adapting to the changes is not voluntary — no matter how unclear or onerous the change may seem. Unlike best practices, where organizations can comply as they choose, laws and regulations cannot be ignored.”
