Cynthia Jacobs talks to CFO magazine

Cynthia Jacobs is the internal auditor who blew the whistle at MCI-Worldcom, got herself fired, and exposed one of the most spectacular frauds and bankruptcies of the boom and bust era. One can argue, with some justice, that she is the "mother of 404," the provision in Sarbanes-Oxley that requires publicly traded companies to have their internal controls externally tested and certified.

Her book, Extraordinary Circumstances, has just been published and this interview speaks about it and the conflicts of interest that test men's moral fiber.
