SOX and privacy laws collide

Thanks to Rob Hyndman for pointing me to an interesting blog posting at Ideoblog about difficulties that some US companies are encountering in reconciling Sarbanes Oxley and privacy laws. SOX requires anonymous and confidential whistleblower mechanisms, while European privacy laws may not be compatible, depending upon the national implementation and interpretation of the European privacy directive. See Ideoblog: Another fine mess Sarbox has gotten us into.
