SOX Expert Cert

Hi all. 

Does anyone have any recommendations for getting a SOX (Sarbanes Oxley) credential?

I've come across it through various other security study and compliance work, but am unsure about picking a vendor for the certification process.

I've found this: https://www.sarbanes-oxley-association.com/CSOE_Course_Synopsis.htm

But the site does look... Erm... Legit.

The course material doesn't appear to be too tough, so could be fun to get.

Cheers!

    SOX applies to US public companies so it's limited. And because its about accounting and financial auditing, that's probably why you aren't getting much response to your question. If you haven't already - you may want to check the certifications on the AICPA site - https://www.aicpa.org/. For SOX standards - your best bet is to start here - https://pcaobus.org/

    That's what we are here for  :)

    While you are on the AICPA site - you could also check out SOC1 and SOC2. SOC1 audits are probably a little closer to SOX. But I'm not an accountant or auditor so that's my best guess.

    Are you an auditor or regulator?

    I'm looking into broadening my conversation topics and looking at the effort needed to acquirer such certifications or expertise.

    Some American businesses here in Europe require some knowledge of SOX, so it's nice to try and stand out from the crowd.

    I've been requested to look into SOC1 and SOC2 audits before, so that's something that is definitely relevant.
