Sarb-Ox Missteps Help IT Execs Fine-tune Plans
Executives who oversaw the first round of Sarbanes-Oxley Act compliance for their companies said last week that in hindsight, they likely would have done things a bit differently.
The changes they would make include better educating workers about the steps that need to be taken, assigning dedicated staffers to assess and monitor critical controls, and automating a greater portion of repairs to deficient IT controls, said attendees at the Sarbanes-Oxley Conference & Exhibition here.
Neil Frieser, vice president of internal controls at Viacom Inc. in New York, said his early experiences taught him that "you want to start the process early, to educate as many people as possible."
