Hide Control Practices  help

  1. Formalise the skills, experience, authority, responsibility and accountability for each IT task. Update the IT task descriptions when IT tasks change.
  2. Assign all IT tasks to one or more roles, and assign roles to IT personnel.
  3. Allocate accountabilities and responsibilities to roles rather than to organisational positions to support the execution of the role. Allocate roles to organisational positions and allocate organisational positions to individuals.
  4. Inform IT personnel about their roles and any changes to their roles.
  5. Ensure that line managers periodically confirm the accuracy of the role descriptions for their team members.
  6. Develop the role description to outline key goals and objectives, which include SMARRT measures, for use in the staff performance evaluation process.
  7. Ensure that role descriptions for staff members across the organisation specifically identify responsibilities regarding information systems, internal control and security.
  8. Ensure that management initiates regular training and awareness campaigns to reinforce staff knowledge of roles. This may be supplemented with occasional assessments of understanding and compliance.
  9. Require all employees to comply with enterprisewide (e.g., corporate) and applicable department policies related to internal control, security and confidentiality.
