This research report explores how the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002 is impacting internal auditors, public accounting firms, and public companies – all of which play a vital role in shaping the internal audit environment. Sarbanes-Oxley is probably the most significant law affecting public companies and public accounting firms since the passage of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934. It is truly a paradigm shift for those companies and accounting firms that have had to implement major changes in their organizations and how they do business.
This research report will:
- Provide an overview of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act, the research objectives, research methodology, and its impact on the profession.
- Include individual case studies that summarize the impact of the Sarbanes-Oxley act on parties affected, as well as the interactions that occur.
- Illustrate how unprecedented opportunities have arisen for internal auditors to increase their visibility, status, and value in their companies.
- Encourage you to take a proactive role in Sarbanes-Oxley activities, making internal audit a valuable part of the company’s movement toward Sarbanes-Oxley compliance.
- Show how internal auditors changed their image from that of the company police officers to that of company partners.
