A Director's Guide to Governing Information Technology and Cybersecurity

A Director's Guide to Governing Information Technology and Cybersecurity

Designed for directors who find themselves in a position where Information Technology (IT) is underpinning a digital transformation of their organisation.

Increasingly, IT is an essential enabler of new product initiatives, product delivery and innovation in companies. Many organisations are now dependent on IT, not just for business as usual but also for the ability to bring new products to market.

With this increased dependence comes an increase in the number of risks that need to be considered:

  1. The risk that these larger more critical IT projects may fail through poor governance and oversight;
  2. The risk that an increased use of IT provides greater target though cybersecurity attacks;
  3. The risk that failing to invest in the right IT projects at the right time will leave the business exposed to competitors who make better choices.

For those organisations that make the right choices and manage these risks well, the rewards can be very significant.

This book is designed for directors who increasingly find themselves in a position where IT is underpinning a digital transformation of their organisation or rapidly becoming a key driver of their business, whether that organisation is a company, a not-for-profit entity or a government department.

In plain language, it provides an understanding of the IT and cybersecurity landscape and offers practical guidance on how to implement sound governance (including templates for board IT committees and cybersecurity risk committees).
