Sarbox Compliance
The appropriately named Sarbanes-Oxley Compliance Toolkit includes a whole range of materials specifically put together to both introduce, and take you through this most important of legislation.

For detailed information see the toolkit's own website: Sarbanes-Oxley Compliance

SOX Act and Security
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.

The SOX email storage requirements can be fulfilled using the GFI MailArchiver

Hey There,

I've been asked to conduct a comprehensive DR Audit of a new DR setup... there are around 10-15 in house applications in scope of this audit

Since, i've never done this knid of a audit before... will appreciate any inputs on what needs to be tested from the DR setup perspective

The latest IT standards are reflected in the COBIT 5.0 standards framework ... There are no set rules on this approach as the standards are written at a high level to allow a wide variety of IT topologies from the mainframe to client-server to cloud based applications to be covered under the wide umbrella of standards.

It would be valuable to ensure the DR recovery process meets SOX standards for financial systems as follows (looking at COBIT links below for improved guidance)

1. COMPREHENSIVE & covers all the key master files
2. RETENTION of backup files can meet recovery goals
3. SECURITY is in place to ensure protection of backup files from unauthorized access
