Safeguarding internal controls and procedures for financial reporting, as well as ensuring the confidentiality, integrity and availability of information, is no longer just a best practice for public organisations.
As you know, it's a legal requirement. Section 404 of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act mandates that all public organisations demonstrate due diligence in the disclosure of financial information and implement a series of internal controls and procedures to communicate, store and protect that data. Public organisations are also required under Section 404 to protect these controls from internal and external threats and unauthorised access, including those that could occur through online systems and networks. This level of security is necessary to ensure companies maintain data integrity for employees, customers and shareholders.
