As security is such a major theme on the Act, many organizations are using the international ISO standards. The ISO 27001 Portal outlines these. A copy of the standards, and security policies, can be obtained via the ISO 17799 Toolkit.

Hi - Briefly, SOX relies on external auditors to validate that Financial systems are well controlled from an IT and workflow standpoint. As SOX is essentially an "internal self-monitoring discpline that the company must impose on itself", audit provides a role of measurement and independance to ensure compliancy.
Auditors make certain companies are meeting their requirements as a public company and provide signoffs that senior management has the SOX related activities well controled (and that no one is cooking the books like Enron did to deceive stock holders).
