IT governance and risk


Information technology is becoming increasingly important to enterprise success as companies are relying more and more on technology to obtain a competitive advantage and increase productivity, often prompting large-scale investments, substantial changes to operations and huge risks. With this in mind, private companies should lay the foundation for effective IT value creation, oversight and risk management by ensuring that the basics are addressed.
