US Sarbanes-Oxley Act (SOX)

The US Sarbanes-Oxley Act (SOX) of 2002 also known as the 'Public Company Accounting Reform and Investor Protection Act' was enacted in response to cases of large scale fraud in large corporations such as the Enron affair. The principal of the Act is to protect investors by improving the accuracy and reliability of corporate disclosures made pursuant to the securities laws and requires that corporate management present information in the company's annual report on the effectiveness of internal controls. The Act imposes harsh penalties for altering, destroying, mutilating, concealing, falsifying records, documents or tangible objects with the intent to obstruct, impede or influence a legal investigation. Guidance on the Act implies the need for the protection of stored data to maintain its integrity and prevent deliberate or accidental corruption.
