  The Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002 is legislation enacted in response to
  the Enron and WorldCom financial scandals to protect shareholders and  
  the general public from accounting errors and fraudulent practices in  
  the enterprise.  
  
  Ryan Loughins from Deloitte will explain the effects of SOX on the way
  we conduct business, as well as how embracing the spirit of the law,
  strong ethics, good governance, reliable reporting, will reap the
  benefits of a re-energized company and reassured investors.
