Ever since it was designed to protect public company investors, compliance with the Sarbanes-Oxley Act has become the de facto global standard for ensuring that electronic records and audit trails are retained and auditable for long periods of time and recoverable after a disaster. The Sarbanes-Oxley legislation passed in 2002 created the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (PCAOB), which now oversees regulation, registration and inspection of all CPAs.

If data is stored onsite and the firm suffers a pandemic event such as a fire, the event would destroy both the operational data and the backup data. The cloud is the safest alternative.
