Compliance & Governance
Security governance and compliance are composed of the structure and processes that ensure effective decision making and the optimal use of IT to meet organizational and regulatory goals.
Effective governance needs to be designed purposefully with business objectives in mind. Too often, an organization’s governance structure and processes are built in an ad-hoc manner. These band-aid solutions to governance mean that organizations have the wrong committee structure made up of members who don’t have the appropriate authority level to make decisions, and this ultimately leads to failure.
Compliance is not one department’s responsibility; it involves factions from across the entire organization. Focusing on compliance over security doesn’t address the risks and instead the focus is put on securing what is necessary. Compliance is not just about technology. IT is not responsible for understanding the full legal and regulatory requirements facing the organization. As the custodian of information, IT is in an excellent position to co-champion compliance projects with the CISO and benefit from their successes.
