I work for a small size publicly traded company. You know what I mean... SOX. And audits.
But where I work, in IT, we are audited about 11 months out of the year. Interim I, Interim II and Year-end (aka rollover) audits. We are so lucky that our audits combine SOX, operational and any other kind of audit that our internal auditors desire...sigh.
And of course, in my job description, audits fall under the last line that states '..and anything else we ask you do during the course of your activity..'. Even during the week of Christmas, the auditors kept asking us to call in resources that were on vacation because they needed to look at something. For the past 3 weeks, it has been non-stop. And I don't mean just me either, a co-worker, our boss and his boss along with the other IT senior leadership members. And yes, people on vacation were called in to provide information. In fact, we had an auditor at 11:43pm request an immediate meeting with some of our infrastructure managers. LOL
