SOX Security Audit/ Annual SOX Risk Assessment
The Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002 (SOX) is designed to protect shareholders and the general public from enterprise accounting errors and fraudulent practices. From an IT perspective, the most critical part of SOX is Section 404 that mandates annual reporting of internal controls over financial reporting by publicly traded companies. But, SOX Section 404 is broadly written and difficult to interpret accurately.
Maxwell IT has the technical knowhow and practical industry expertise to help your organization achieve and maintain SOX compliance. Whether you’re tackling SOX 404 issues for the first time, need ongoing security and infrastructure management or require assistance with SOX auditing and reporting, we’re here to help.
