SOX detail 197

  • I’m not familiar with the details of the SOX act and don’t want to take the time to do so. I have been told that somewhere within the act is a requirement to install smoke detectors - yes, really.
    Is this true, and if so, can you provide me with a citation? Thanks.

  • I have lived and breathed nearly nothing BUT SOX for the past 14 months…and I would be willing to bet that the words ‘smoke detector’ do not appear anywhere in the act…
    HOWEVER, under the category of IT General controls, and possibly Entity Level Controls, I can see smoke detectors (as part of a larger fire-suppression effort, esp in things like server rooms, warehouses, etc) being looked on as a requirement of an effective control environment.
