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 - Head of Risk and SOX Compliance search
Posted: Thu Jan 20, 2005 4:09 pm Post subject: Head of Risk and SOX Compliance search
We have been retained by a $1.5 billion pharmaceutical technology company to locate a Head of Risk & SOX Compliance for their European Headquarters.
This is a new position, reporting directly to the CFO, and is designed for a young and ambitious former audit professional.
Our client controls 50-60% of the European market and is known for its technological superiority. They are especially dominant in the high-end pharmaceutical and drug delivery business where they enjoy healthy margins. Analysts estimate that the European pharmaceutical market is so dependent on our client that if manufacturing and distribution were suspended the market would shut down in two weeks. The European region continues to grow annually at 15%.
The Head of Risk & SOX Compliance will work along-side the CFO—a bright, world-class finance executive—to ensure risk management and Sarbanes-Oxley compliance. This is an “ambassador” role, liaising between corporate and regional/country managers. This person will be both detail oriented, as well as independent and self assured in front of all levels of management. It is an extremely visible position and will likely lead to future opportunities within the company.
Specifically, the Head of Risk & SOX Compliance will oversee and report back to senior management on all: (a) aspects of risk management, including planning, analysis, modeling and loss prevention; (b) Sarbanes-Oxley implementation and compliance; (c) post-audit reporting; (d) expenditure and internal controls procedures at regional operations.
Candidates should have a background in Sarbanes-Oxley compliance. Our client will consider a bright, quantitative finance or accounting person to train on the risk management responsibilities.
Compensation, including stock options, will depend on background and salary history but will reflect the company’s reputation of above-industry cash and long term incentive.
All contact will be respected with total confidentiality. A current CV would be most helpful.
