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 and welcome to the forums
As a starting point, the threads found here are actually my favorite source of learning -- as they offer practical guidance and real world examples. In particular, the IT forum is recommended for SOX 404 related needs
Secondly, from an IT perspective, many external auditors use COBIT 4 standards to gauge SOX 404 compliancy and this document is available as a free download.
thanks harrywaldron. I am trying to learn more on SOX. BTW, i have been recruited by the company, and will be on board in early November. SOX sources in China are very rare but i am trying to get in touch with people working on this area in China. The company (suppose it is called ABC) has hired a consulting firm to set up the internal control procedures. Flowchart and narrative documentations have been finished by the consulting firm. Since ABC has transformed itself from a private company to a public traded one, there are definitely many areas that need improvement. I am actually worried that i might not be competent enough to work on the position. Someone i met in chatroom said the job is indeed quite challenging for a new starter but also suggested my having a try. I have been working in the audit department of a big four firm in China for three years. Most of the projects i worked on focused mainly on the figures since we mostly adopted substantive approach. I would be grateful if you can share more on my first SOX try. thanks.
