Who’s In Control?

Who’s In Control?

by Rick Turoczy on July 10, 2006

Everyone’s been complaining about Sarbanes-Oxley and other government induced compliance formulae for several years now (everybody, of course, except the auditors and consultants who make a ton of money on compliance and related activities). Technology has become part of the compliance process in some very important ways. Let’s talk about the role that IT governance plays in compliance and the frameworks out there to help us all stay legal.

The Control Objectives for Information and Related Technology (COBIT) framework — according to the Information Systems Audit and Control Association (ISACA) — is:

“An IT governance framework and supporting toolset that allows managers to bridge the gap between control requirements, technical issues, and business risks. COBIT enables clear policy development and good practice for IT control throughout organizations. COBIT emphasizes regulatory compliance, helps organizations to increase the value attained from IT, enables alignment and simplifies implementation of the COBIT framework.”
