SOX sections 806, 902 and 906 were enacted in an attempt to hold individuals responsible for fraudulent acts associated with financial reporting. Sections 806, 902 and 906 of the Sarbanes-Oxley act all have critical implications to companies working to comply with the Act. In fact, many people would contest that the topics addressed in these sections go to the heart of why the legislation was established – because of the instances of corporate miss-deeds. Let us have a brief introduction about each sections:
According to the Wall Street Journal, the SEC’s whistleblower program has generated tips from more than 6,500 people from at least 68 countries. Resulted in more than $150 million in restitution and fines and more than $15 million in bounty payments to the whistleblowers.
Each of these acts address specific criteria to protect whistleblowers and help bring confidence and assurance to investors through requirements of certifications, specification of penalties for non-compliance and protection for whistleblowers.
