What is SOX
What is the ‘Sarbanes-Oxley Act Of 2002 – SOX’
The Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002 (SOX) is an act passed by U.S. Congress in 2002 to protect investors from the possibility of fraudulent accounting activities by corporations. The SOX Act mandated strict reforms to improve financial disclosures from corporations and prevent accounting fraud.
Aim of SOX
Strengthening the Control Environment
Good governance is a mixture of the enforceable and the intangible. Organizations with strong governance provide discipline and structure; instill ethical values in employees and train them in the proper procedures; and exhibit behavior at the board and executive levels that the rest of the organization will want to emulate.
What elements are included
An efficient and robust Sarbanes-Oxley 404 program can help you deliver the transparency the public seeks.
With over 10 years experience of delivering SOX IT compliance services I am ready to help you achieve Sarbanes-Oxley (SOX) 404 compliance objectives and deliver both shareholder value and public confidence.

IT Organisational Change
Organizational restructuring is typically driven by significant changes in a company’s strategy or shifts in their competitive and economic environment that require leadership to undertake a large-scale initiative. The change required is both comprehensive and far-reaching and often poses serious financial, operational, customer and employee risk if done poorly.
We work closely with leaders to deploy a holistic and comprehensive approach to evaluate and implement the right combination of changes in business process, people, technology, structure, governance and culture that are needed to execute a strategic shift, thwart the competition or weather periods of economic uncertainty. As importantly, we also help leaders manage this change in a manner that ensures their workforce understands and embraces the new organization through their active engagement in its design and implementation.
Global data privacy is a complex and fascinating world – and I am thankful to navigate this world with Rob Healey. I have found Rob to be knowledgeable, curious, and responsive. The curiosity is critical, because the data world changes so rapidly, one must be willing to learn and continue to do so. There are few things more valuable to a privacy professional than having a quality IT partner. I am glad to have Rob as one of mine.K Royal
Rob, as a Head of IT Operations department, has been my direct contact person during our support agreement on the NetSuite platform. We’ve been working together to ensure the usage of a new ERP system is in accordance with SOX requirements.
Rob is a quality partner to work with. He is knowledgeable and proactive but also a great team player willing to share his experience with others. During the last few years of our cooperation I’ve got a chance to witness how Rob managed to build an amazing, dedicated team of professionals with a clear vision and strategy. It’s been an enormous pleasure for me to work with Rob and his entire team and I would gladly recommend him as a valuable IT partner.
