The effect of SOX on corporate governance and IT operations

Sponsored by SearchCompliance.com

Compliance mandates established by the 2002 Sarbanes-Oxley Act, or SOX, are not new, but many organizations still grapple with the myriad effects of SOX on corporate governance and IT operations. In this SearchCompliance handbook, we explore the data management implications of SOX and how public organizations can comply and thrive.

In the first piece, former CIO Harvey Koeppel reviews some of the best practices an enterprise can undertake toward creating a SOX-compliant data governance strategy and policy. In the second piece, expert contributor Jeffrey Jenkins explains how a management strategy centered around SOX compliance can bolster IT security as well as overarching business operations. In the third piece, former security officer Judith M. Myerson lays out four steps to streamline data retention requirements in order to consolidate information management and remain SOX-compliant.
