The Sarbanes-Oxley Act was passed in 2002 in order to tighten corporate control and accountability in response to major accounting scandals such as Enron and WorldCom. A model is presented to explain the relationship between compliance, business processes, and information technology. Factors critical to complying with the act are: readiness, affordability, external support, scope of review, controllability, IT supportability, and ethics.
