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.

Denis, I am sorry and Thanks sysadmin for deleting my duplicate postings. I was thinking that I would get some reply from someone at the earliest. I will avoid posting duplicate messages hereafter. Kind regards..
Well I cannot tell you the name of any specific agency or person providing this services. However, recently Infosys and Bank of Panjab or Panjab National Bank(not sure which bank) have done the sox compliance. You can approach them for further guidance. The mentioned bank, although, has nothing to do with Sox as far as indian law is concerned, however, they are proactively doing this after getting impresssed by the law.

I would appreciate if you could provide some some info on achieving SOX / HIPAA/DPA compliance by BPO companies operating in India servicing US/UK clients.
1. Road Map to SOX / HIPAA/DPA compliance
2. Who is offering this service in India
3. Cost of certification.
Kind Regards and thanks..
Can't comment too much on HIPAA but unless the specific BPO company was listed in the US (i.e. required to submit 20-F to SEC) then there woul dbe NO REQUIREMENT TO COMPLY WITH SOX.
What the BPO's will need to do is provide a degree of comfort around their ability to control what they do for their clients. With this in mind you might want to look at some of hte threads on here around SAS 70 and outsourced service providers. _________________ "The art of life is to deal with problems as they arise, rather than destroy one's spirit by worrying about them too far in advance" - Cicero
