Enacted in response to multiple corporate accounting scandals, the Sarbanes Oxley Act (SOX) (also known as the Public Company Accounting Reform and Investor Protection Act) safeguards investors from fraudulent activities involving internal employees. Heavy penalties and stringent regulatory standards are imposed to ensure all the financial information processed by an organization is genuine and reliable.
