Sarbanes-Oxley Act!

"SOX" generated a huge amount of power and work for IT professionals, entirely changed corporate structures and ran many companies offshore.

Section 802(a) of the SOX, 18 U.S.C. ? 1519: Whoever knowingly alters, destroys, mutilates, conceals, covers up, falsifies, or makes a false entry in any record, document, or tangible object with the intent to impede, obstruct, or influence the investigation or proper administration of any matter within the jurisdiction of any department or agency of the United States or any case filed under title 11, or in relation to or contemplation of any such matter or case, shall be fined under this title, imprisoned not more than 20 years, or both.
