Some day I'll write an editorial on SOX and post it on my site.   

However let it be known that the authors have serious regrets on how
auditing firms have abused the intent of the law.  

I would ensure that your normal DB backups and retention are up to
normal industry standards.  As for journals, I would consider keeping
the system Audit journal for reasonable cycle (3-6 months?), and normal
transaction receivers for maybe 2 business cycles.  Example, you have
some month end processing which reports the months activity.  Retain an
extra month for a back check if the current month doesn't balance when
