Hide Control Practices  help

  1. Define the business requirements for the management of data by IT.
  2. Define and implement a policy that addresses segregation of duties within operations for the entry, processing and authorisation of data transactions, including overrides and corrections. Address the responsibilities for segregation of duties within both the business and operations.
  3. Ensure that data completeness and restart and reprocessing requirements are included in batch job schedules and procedures.
  4. Define and implement a process that ensures that data inputs are prepared with embedded checks for completeness, validity, accuracy, security, authorisation and integrity.
  5. Define and implement a process that ensures that all operational errors requiring transaction reprocessing are brought to the attention of the originating business function and resubmitted in a timely fashion. All erroneous transactions should go through the same checks for segregation of duties, completeness, validity, etc., as for first-time data processing.
  6. As appropriate and in accordance with defined security policies, communicate to management security breaches during any operational phase of data receipt, processing and transmission.
  7. Define and implement a process that verifies and logs the distribution of the output to appropriate departments, with special handling of confidential information.
  8. Define and implement a process that properly safeguards and stores source data and prevents their unauthorised modification.
  9. Institute policies and procedures for retention of data received from the business and their subsequent destruction according to the data’s sensitivity.
