Pull your sox up

Phil and Marco have a great article on how Liberty Alliance's IGF can support SOX compliance.

Many information technology systems are comprised of numerous data “silos” containing personal information of customers, employees and partners. Information is often duplicated between these silos to varying degrees of accuracy and quality. Since management procedures are often specific to each silo, inconsistencies in the care and control and use of this information are inevitable. With the possibility of inconsistent identity information, demonstrating operational stability and control as required by SOX becomes challenging.
