Title:
IT Governance on Security Management Decisions
Author Name:
Dr. Ioannis Koskosas
Abstract:
Implementation of this guidance, or indeed any IT best practice, should be consistent with your organization’s management style and the way your organization deals with risk management and delivery of IT value. All analysts currently agree that probably the biggest risk and concern to top management today is failing to align IT to real business needs, and a failure to deliver, or be seen to be delivering, value to the business. Since IT can have such a dramatic effect on business performance and competitiveness and particularly in security management issues, a failure to manage IT effectively can have a very serious impact on the business as a whole. In this paper, the notion and impact of governance is analyzed in the context of IT security management decisions. In doing so, two case studies are used to identify possible factors that may affect managers in developing successful governance strategies.
