SOX and ITIL 831

  • Never heard of SOX until today, wondering how people see it fitting in with ITIL. Can ITIL support SOX requirements?

  • ITIL is about IT service management. SOX is about control over financial reporting.
    To the the extent that financial reporting is supported by IT then ITIL can be useful to improve control over IT service management. However, it is not as useful as, say, COBIT or BS7799 in supporting the IT component of SOX.
