The Sarbanes-Oxley (SOX) Act of 2002 was passed in the wake of several large accounting scandals at publicly traded companies. The goal of SOX is to improve corporate governance and accountability and ensure that financial reporting at all public companies is accurate. SOX hold executives directly responsible for the accuracy of disclosed financial information. The consequences for non-compliance can include steep personal fines and even jail time.
While SOX is applicable only to public companies, their financial data must be protected as mandated by SOX, even by any accounting firm or other third party that provides financial services to these public companies.
