In the twenty-first century, IT governance has become a much-discussed topic among IT professionals. It is not well understood by senior managers, company directors, board members and chairmen which is a pity, because IT governance is a key topic for exactly these people. The emergence of ISO/IEC 38500 the international standard for the corporate governance of information and communication technology puts boards around the world in a position from which they can take effective action to apply core governance principles to their information and communication technology. This essential pocket guide will help you to understand both this new standard and the complex area of IT governance. Key features of this pocket guide include: an overview of the ISO/IEC 38500 standard; framework for good IT governance; project governance; and the Calder-Moir Framework.

This work is based on his experience of leading the world's first successful implementation of BS7799 (with the fourth edition published in May 2008) and is the basis for the UK Open University's postgraduate course on information security.Other books written by Alan include The Case for ISO27001 and ISO27001 - Nine Steps to Success.

Review:

For those who are spearheading the drive for IT Governance, usage of this book with Senior Management and the Board of Directors is a first step. It provides the high level understanding that is needed, without the technical clauses that are related in the standard. --James Ritchie, CISA, CISSP
