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 Sarbanes Oxley Act :: View topic - Entitlement Review / User Access Review
Posted: Tue Dec 02, 2008 10:22 am Post subject: Entitlement Review / User Access Review
I wanted to inquire with you all to see if you have any links to any resources where I can find specific "best practices" guidance with regard to conducting user access reviews. I am specifically looking for support that I will use in a management memo that I am going to write to support how our company needs to improve our user access review process.
-- Ensure groups/permissions well documented by IT security
-- Ensure permissions have blessings of system owners (with approvals on file - electronically in sharepoint, email, change mgt system, etc)
-- Look for a minimalistic security approach on sensitive applications (like finance) where users have just enough rights to do job
-- Look for proper approval/autonomy levels in the workflow, permissions, and control structures
-- Use good tools like Bindview, KSA, or other advanced security tools to map our access rights electronically
