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

Is it a SOX audit point if a purchasing agent place the requisition, approves the requisition, receives the PO and enters the invoice? If so, can you point me to the SOX audit point? I believe that a purchasing agent can't also receive goods but I'd like to have some backup but can't find anything.

thanks

You won't find anything in SOX rules, as they are very general.

However, SOX requires each company to adopt a control framework, of which COSO is the most prominent.

COSO says that "segregation of duties generally entails dividing the responsibility for recording, authorizing, and approving transactions, and handling the related asset."

Therefore, it appears that you have a segregation of duties issue. However, you must also consider what other controls are in place that might mitigate this issue. Smaller companies generally do not have the staff to segregate all functions like a larger company would. If that is the case, then where segregation of duties issues exist, mitigating controls should be identified.
