Information Technology (IT) Security has become a boardroom issue as regulators are now holding senior management responsible for any breach within their company’s IT infrastructure. Board members are provided with additional oversight of the data, which is always the core of any organization. This data may include but not limited to customers’ information, suppliers’ information, or intellectual property. This data may include customers’ information, suppliers’ information, or intellectual property.

Technology plays an important part in the day-to-day running of your organization and needs to be prioritized during board discussions. No matter the size of your organization, technology plays a major role in the delivery of most of the services. Hence the importance of the risks management process being managed at the senior level.

We know that your GRC program can take a backseat to your other business priorities. However ignoring security will cost you if it is not dealt with from the board of directors’ level, or you might find yourself in the financials or the news.

 Senior management has full oversight of the following:

  • 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. Oversight and strategy are the responsibility of the senior management of the organization.

There are six areas of assurance to have 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

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