Susan Joslyn of SJ+ Systems Associates, Inc. discussed the importance of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002.
It's trickle-down all over again. The purpose of this congressional Act is to require specific compliance and records-keeping to validate financial records. Not publicly traded? That’s okay, are you doing business with anyone that is? And, while the officers of the company that are specifically threatened with jail time are the CEO and the CFO, much of the burden for implementation will come down to the CIO and IT staff.
More computers, more software and better practices will be required and IT will be expected to come up with the goods. And the officers of your company will be looking to you , IT -- perhaps even breathing down your neck -- for guidance.
