    Good to see private companies come under Sarbanes Oxley Act as well. This will help with better governance and increase the accountability. I work with McGladrey and there’s an article on our website about SOX Act that highlights the need for a newly re-focused evaluation of internal controls that readers of this article may find it useful @ “SOX Reset 2014” http://bit.ly/1g4aX8C
