The U.S. Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002 is bringing about far-reaching reform of business practices, and sets challenging new standards for the accuracy, completeness and timeliness of financial reporting. Business, IT, or security staff concerned about the controls applied to IT-based information systems need to understand what the Act calls for. Conversely, teams engaged in achieving compliance with the Act need to understand the latest research about the controls applied to IT-based financial systems.
This white paper by Citicus is aimed at both groups. It explains the Act in broad terms, highlights the danger of unrealistic evaluations, and shows how the measurement and management processes built into Citicus ONE can be used to evaluate the completeness and effectiveness of controls applied to financial systems realistically and efficiently, so as to provide real business benefits.
