The Sarbanes-Oxley Act: A Practical Guide for Companies
What is it?
A simple reference guide designed to help businesses understand the terms of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act. Passed in response to the corporate scandals of 2001 and 2002, this law calls for stricter corporate governance and financial reporting standards.
