A series of high visibility examples of corporate fraud motivated the federal government to step in and create laws to hold corporations more accountable to the public and to their shareholders. Two of the more well-known examples are Gramm-Leach-Bliley (GLB Act) passed in 1999 and Sarbanes-Oxley Act (SOX) passed in 2002. Both of these laws have information security and privacy components that impact financial management and creation of financial statements within certain organizations.
