A Primer on Sarbanes-Oxley
Congress enacted the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002 (SOX) to restore public trust in the markets. Among its ways of achieving this, SOX attempts to improve organizational ethics by defining a code of ethics as including the promotion of honest and ethical conduct, requiring disclosure on the codes that apply to senior financial officers, and including provisions to encourage whistle blowing.
