Sarbanes-Oxley Act and Securities Investigations


Sarbanes-Oxley Act and Securities Investigation: Recently, there have been dozens of scandals, both small and large, in the corporate world, such as Enron. Greedy individuals pilfered uncounted millions of dollars by "cooking the books" in accounting, and ruined the lives of thousands of workers across the world. This led to the creation of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act in 2002, which strongly tightened the accounting requirements for corporations.


Sarbanes-Oxley Act Investigation

The Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002, also called “Sarbox” or “SOX,” is a federal law meant to track and control corporate financial reporting, accounting, and spending by imposing severe penalties and fines for violations.

SOX was enacted in response to several major corporate and accounting scandals in the 1990’s and early 2000’s, including Enron, Tyco International, Adelphia, Peregrine Systems, and WorldCom.  Its purpose is to protect consumers by requiring corporations to follow very strict rules in reporting their financial and accounting information to the federal Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC).  The Act covers a wide range of duties and responsibilities.  When a company is suspected of violating the act, the SEC will investigate that company to determine if any violations actually occurred.  If you suspect that your company, or one of your competitors, is in violation of the act, then it would be in your best interest to call a private investigator such as ICS to find out the truth.  Don’t get caught in the collateral damage of an SEC investigation – be proactive and get the truth out.  Call ICS today and let us put our decades of experience to work for you.

Are you in need?

Sarbanes-Oxley Investigations are complex, and they require quite a bit of number crunching and financial auditing and analysis, but they can go deeper than that. If you suspect that a corporation is not complying with the standards that SOX has set, then ICS can help find out for sure. It may require further background checks, surveillance, and monitoring to build a case, and then our investigators can analyze data and information to find out if the corporate reporting is accurate and complete. If you suspect that something is not right in your company or at a competitor, then call ICS today and let us find the truth.
