2006 IT Security Governance – A CIO’s Guide TISN DCITA

Whatever your business, security and privacy are key matters that affect your enterprise and those dependent upon you. There is a realisation, domestically and abroad, that an organisation cannot effectively achieve its corporate and IT governance objectives without high-level executive support. These issues are now reaching boardroom agendas via an increasing awareness that a strong and effective security governance framework is fundamental to achieving organisational objectives, meeting stakeholder requirements, maintaining compliance with laws and regulations and maintaining acceptable levels of risk across the enterprise.

This paper works as a reference guideline for CIOs, and their respective security management practitioners, highlighting the importance of an appropriate governance framework for the management of corporate information networks and IT security to ensure the continuity of critical infrastructure services. It covers what you need to know and what is expected of you.
