Sarbanes Oxley (SOX) Compliance for IT404

IT Technical Writer, Specializing in SOX Documenta

SOX compliance is important to the publicly-held company, because the corporation’s executives can be financially liable for weaknesses or noncompliance. Compliance is determined by the SEC through audits.

Documentation is vital to these companies.

A Technical Writer provides technical and end-user documentation and makes this information understandable to the intended audience. The writer must be able to translate information into easy-to-understand documentation and work well with others.

The freelance writer must be patient, self-motivated, and disciplined.

The writer may need to work closely with engineers, managers, and directors to write documentation for
• Technical standards
• Technology processes and procedures
• Formal policies
• Installation data
• Roles and responsibilities
• Job descriptions
• Disaster recovery plans
• Emergency procedures

In addition, the SOX Technical Writer must understand Controls as it relates to SEC compliance:
• Change Management
• Operation Management
• Data Management
• Information Security

Another important compliance topic is the SDLC (Software Design Life Cycle) and its six phases:
• Phase 1: Preliminary Investigation
• Phase 2: Analysis
• Phase 3: Design
• Phase 4: Development
• Phase 5: Implementation
• Phase 6: Audit and Maintenance

Additional Skills
A SharePoint Services site is valuable for sharing information and a perfect site for the Technical Writer to post documents.

Using RoboHelp or RoboInfo Publisher to create the help and index modules can facilitate searches.
