A security manager analyzes, anticipates, and protects the organization from every threat, ranging from liability to possible terrorism (Ortmeier, 2009). Security managers are needed in just about any organization, private or public to provide personnel, information and physical security. For a security manager to achieve security success in an organization, he or she must set comprehensive security goals (Ortmeier, 2009). The goals should facilitate the accomplishment of business goals, be achieved within a small security budget and support all security and governance requirements (Ortmeier, 2009).

Mr. President, everyone at LJB needs to understand the definition of internal control and what is required of them under the SOX law since this law requires a combined effort from top management and employees alike. Internal control “consists of all the related methods and measures adopted within an organization to safeguard its assets, enhance the accuracy and reliability of its accounting records, increase efficiency of operations, and ensure compliance with laws and regulations” (Kimmel, Weygandt & Kieso, 2009, pp. 327-328). In other words, effective internal control can help companies achieve established financial goals, prevent loss of resources, and prepare reliable financial statements. Under SOX, all publicly traded U.S corporations are required to maintain an adequate system of internal control by means of developing principles of control over financial reporting as well as continually verifying that these controls are working.
