IT Govenance & Compliance

IT Govenance & Compliance

Many organisations today are subject to regulations & compliance governing data retention, confidential information, data security and financial accountability.

IT governance is an integral part of an organisation’s overall governance, it provides a structured framework for aligning IT strategy with business strategy.

Let APACMS ensure your business meets it’s internal and external requirements with a formal IT governance program that provides a framework of best practices and controls.

No-one wants a breach in network security to occur and in today's environment it is a very real threat. Security breaches don't mean that your network will crash because not all types of network security breaches are major. Some are so minor that you may not even notice is unless you're paying extremely close attention to your network's activity. Smaller breaches can lead to larger ones, so it is important to know where the weak areas are and resolve them as soon as possible.

 

The 5 areas of IT Governance we focus on.

APACMS focuses on five areas IT Governance:

Strategic alignment

Linking business and IT so they work well together. Typically, the lightning rod is the planning process, and true alignment can occur only when the corporate side of the business communicates effectively with line-of-business leaders and IT leaders about costs, reporting and impacts.

Value delivery

Making sure that the IT department does what’s necessary to deliver the benefits promised at the beginning of a project or investment. The best way to get a handle on everything is by developing a process to ensure that certain functions are accelerated when the value proposition is growing, and eliminating functions when the value decreases.

Resource management

One way to manage resources more effectively is to organise your staff more efficiently — for example, by skills instead of by line of business. This allows organisations to deploy employees to various lines of business on a demand basis.

Risk management

Instituting a formal risk framework that puts some rigor around how IT measures, accepts and manages risk, as well as reporting on what IT is managing in terms of risk.

Performance measures

Putting structure around measuring business performance. One popular method involves instituting an IT Balanced Scorecard, which examines where IT makes a contribution in terms of achieving business goals, being a responsible user of resources and developing people. It uses both qualitative and quantitative measures to get those answers.
