IT Security has become a Boardroom issue as regulators are now holding senior management responsible for any breach within their companies IT infrastructure. Board members have ultimate oversight of the data which is always the lifeblood of any organization. This data may include but not limited to customers information, suppliers information, or intellectual property.

Technology plays a large risk to your business and needs to be a top priority in board discussion. No matter the size of your organization, technology plays a major role in the delivery of your service. With this comes, risks that must be addressed from the board level.

We know that your GRC program can take a backseat to your other business priorities. Ignoring security will cost you if you don’t deal with it from the Board of director’s level. You might find yourself dealing with it in the financials or in the news.

The following three areas must be comprehensively developed with senior management oversight:

  • Governance program
  • Risk Management program
  • Compliance program

As documented many times, information technology governance is the oversight of the enterprises’ information technology to ensure that leadership, structure and processes enable the strategy of the organization within an acceptable risk profile. The oversight and strategy is of the senior management direction of the organization.

There are six areas of assurance that the board must meet to have a robust IT Governance.

      1. Strategic Alignment and Contribution
      2. Value Generation
      3. Information Security
      4. Risk Management
      5. IT Human Capital Management
      6. IT Processes and Performance

Once these processes are functional to the running of the business, governance is straight forward and the governance process not burdensome. Auditors, regulators and compliance officials also appreciate when these processes are documented and demonstrated in routine business operations.

With RTS services, we can help you develop or enhance your Governance, Risk and Compliance (GRC) program. Our goal is to help Board members get the right set of information by first aligning the IT strategy with the overall business strategy. This requires a comprehensive Risk Management program, a formable Governance and Compliance structure that is fully responsible to reporting to the Board.
