Sarbanes-Oxley: An Opportunity for Security Professionals
by Steven Drew - COO at LURHQ Corporation - Monday, 06 December 2004.
All security teams should view the guidelines set forth by Sarbanes-Oxley as an opportunity. Implementing the controls and processes recommended by this Act will lead to a more secure business environment. More importantly, SOX raises executives' awareness of their critical business systems and the security surrounding these systems. This enables the security team to frequently demonstrate their value as a key enabler of business. This results in the executives gaining confidence in their security team, which will help future budgetary and personnel needs. Whether or not you have to comply with SOX, security teams should take a long look at this legislation and formulate a strategy to use it as a way to gain much needed visibility at the highest levels in the enterprise.
