Corporate disclosure, compliance oversight, controls monitoring, company training, and—the practice of public accounting—all have been impacted by Sarbanes-Oxley. Most companies face a compliance concern related to SOX rule 404. That rule requires management to assess the effectiveness of the company's internal controls over financial reporting and include its findings in the company's annual report to shareholders. If
