Hide Control Practices  help

  1. Assign responsibility for the identification of legal or regulatory requirements relevant to the IT resources and operations of the organisation. Consider contractual requirements between trading partners and with service providers with respect to security, privacy, data handling, intellectual property and copyright, and insurance contracts.
  2. Design and implement a process to identify and assess the applicable laws and regulatory requirements. Determine their impact on the IT resources and operations of the organisation and its service providers, and update policies, standards, procedures and methodologies accordingly. Consider laws and regulations for electronic commerce, data flow, security, privacy, internal controls, financial reporting, industry-specific regulations, intellectual property copyright, and health and safety, and ensure that these obligations are included in the contractual terms.
  3. Assess the impact of legal and regulatory requirements on contracts related to IT operations, contractual relationships, third-party service providers and trading partners.
  4. Obtain independent counsel, where appropriate, on changes to applicable laws, regulations and standards.
  5. Maintain an up-to-date log of all relevant legal, regulatory and contractual compliance requirements; their impact; and required actions.
