The Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002 has rewritten the rules for corporate governance, disclosure, and reporting.

The new and proposed SEC rules that influence Sarbanes-Oxley are complicated and require immediate and decisive action. Sarbanes-Oxley focuses heavily on the critical role of internal control. It is a process in which a company's board of directors, management, and other personnel must actively participate to drive business success.
