Hide Control Practices  help

  1. Create a hierarchical set of policies, standards and procedures to manage the IT control environment. The form and style of the policies should align to the IT control environment.
  2. Develop specific policies on relevant key topics such as quality, security, confidentiality, internal controls, ethics and intellectual property rights.
  3. Evaluate and update the policies at least yearly to accommodate changing operating or business environments. The re-evaluation should assess the policies’ adequacy and appropriateness, and they should be amended as necessary.
  4. Ensure that procedures are in place to track compliance with policies and define the consequences of non-compliance.
  5. Ensure that accountability has been defined through roles and responsibilities.
