The Sarbanes-Oxley Act Didn't Invent Penalties For Destruction of Evidence, 
But It
Did Perfect Them
By Randolph Kahn, ESQ
The Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002 was passed in the wake of seemingly endless

tool for the SEC to regulate publicly traded companies and protect the 
investing public from the actions of unscrupulous executives and accountants.

many in the information management community are asking about the impact of 
the Sarbanes-Oxley. So what does the law mean, what are the implications for 
your company, and what can be done to insulate your company from becoming the 
next headline? However, before we answer those questions, let's briefly look 
at the law itself.
