Establishment of an IT Governance Framework

Define, establish and align the IT governance framework with the overall enterprise governance and control environment. Base the framework on a suitable IT process and control model and provide for unambiguous accountability and practices to avoid a breakdown in internal control and oversight. Confirm that the IT governance framework ensures compliance with laws and regulations and is aligned with, and confirms delivery of, the enterprise’s strategies and objectives. Report IT governance status and issues.
