Information is widely regarded as the lifeblood of modern business, but organizations are facing a flood of threats to such “intellectual capital” from hackers, viruses, and online fraud. Directors must respond to increasingly complex and competing demands regarding data protection, privacy regulations, computer misuse, and investigatory regulations. IT Governance will be valuable to board members, executives, owners and managers of any business or organization that depends on information.
Covering the Sarbanes-Oxley Act (in the US) and the Turnbull Report and the Combined Code (in the UK), the book examines standards of best practice for compliance and data security. Written for companies looking to protect and enhance their information security management systems, it allows them to ensure that their IT security strategies are coordinated, coherent, comprehensive and cost effective.
