Quatrième de couverture
Everything You Need to Know About the Sarbanes-Oxley Act--What It Is, What Your Company Must Do to Comply, and More
The Sarbanes-Oxley Act is unquestionably important to corporate America. It can also be complex and confusing, for everyone from the employees who must be doubly aware of what they can--and cannot--do to the officers who must take legal responsibility for the actions, errors, and omissions of those employees.
What is Sarbanes-Oxley? provides you with a plain-English overview of the Act to help ensure that your firm achieves and maintains top-to-bottom Sarbanes-Oxley Act (SOA) compliance. Written in clear, concise, and readable language, with helpful checklists so that no requirements are overlooked, this SOA primer covers:
- Guidelines for ensuring that your company's policies, procedures, systems, and controls are Sarbanes-Oxley compliant
- Management certification responsibilities--and noncompliance penalties--under Sections 302, 404, and 906
- Techniques for modifying existing control systems and programs to meet new SOA specifications
Today's most competitive corporations--rather than view Sarbanes-Oxley as a painful and costly-to-implement headache--are using SOA as an opportunity to both revitalize their business practices and strengthen their competitive positions. Get the details of what your firm must understand to meet the requirements of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act in McGraw-Hill's straightforward primer What is Sarbanes-Oxley?

I read through the legislation. I'm not an attorney, and I wasn't motivated to cross reference the other laws/acts mentioned. In other words I just read the legislation as is, with no legal background.
When this book arrived, I expected it would provide information and/or interpretations that I was not able to get directly from reading the legislation and other free materials.
In truth, I found there was very little, if anything that I hadn't gathered directly from my other sources. If you are trying to learn what Sarbanes-Oxley is about and choose not to use the available information, this book does describe the basics.
I would not recommend it, because it does not significant add to, or simplify the information readily available for free.
The book does provide a "plan-English overview", from about 200,000 feet. In breadth, it does seem to cover each section of the act, but only from an exteremely high summary level.
I was hoping this would be "Sarbanes-Oxley" for dummies, but it doesn't either have the level of explanation or the wit of most "for dummies" books.
This book would be useful for someone who needed a very quick, high-level cursory introduction to Sarbanes-Oxley, but to suggest it is *everything* you, your employees or your company needs to know is absolutely crazy!
After reading this you will be able to understand what the Sarbanes-Oxley Act was created to do, how the rules work, who is responsible for what in your company, and what you must do to comply with the act.
Honesty, for the cost and the time it takes to read this book it is worth it.
