Created in 2002, Sarbanes-Oxley (also known as SOX) is a set of mandatory regulations covering financial practice and corporate governance that all publically-traded companies, regardless of size, must comply with. The Act is named after its main architects: Senator Paul Sarbanes and Representative Michael Oxley.
The Sarbanes-Oxley Act comprises eleven sections. Security regulations, such as the need for organisations to establish a detailed, credible security policy, form a majorin element of its compliance requirements.
Sarbanes-Oxley (SOX) compliance can be achieved through a secure IT infrastructure. At Secunia we strive to provide comprehensive network security software that makes adapting and maintaining your system to adhere to compliance requirements easy.
Non-compliance with SOX can result in the following consequences: theft of sensitive data, severe fines, loss of revenues and trust from the marketplace and financial sector, and consumers, in addition to damage to reputation, and litigation.
These consequences can be avoided by maintaining a network secured with the most up-to-date IT security advice and patches.
