First Book in Sarbanes-Oxley Body of Knowledge Series Hits the Shelves

This past fall, the GRC Group proudly announced the publication of the first book in The SOX Institute’s Sarbanes-Oxley Body of Knowledge (SOXBoK™) series, The Sarbanes-Oxley Act: An Introduction.

SOXBoK™ is the culmination of nearly three years of work by a dedicated team of thought leaders and experts in the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002. We consider it our flagship publication, and are thrilled that the book is receiving accolades from practitioners.

SOXBoK™ was written and edited so that it is accessible to everyone from novices to those who are recognized professionals in audit-related fields.

We give kudos to the team of researchers, writers, and editors, whose contributions to SOXBoK™ led to the creation of this authoritative, comprehensive compendium on the SOX Act. They include:

  • Kim Czarniewy, EP Medical Systems, F&A
  • Josie De Marco, PMP, Project Management Office, USA, IT
