Businesses have always had to take care in implementing well-laid out plans if they wish to minimise any risks to efficiency, profits and reputation, whilst simultaneously maximising the accrued benefits of a given project. Nowadays, integrated information systems can magnify these benefits and greatly strengthen an organisation; but such benefits are balanced by a serious risk. If IT systems are not used in a disciplined manner they can create havoc and they frequently bring about unexpected results and catastrophe, as shown by the rise in security incidents and computer-based crimes.
IT Strategic and Operational Controls provides a comprehensive guide to implementing an integrated and flexible set of IT controls in a systematic way. It can help organisations to formulate a complete culture for all areas which must be supervised and controlled; allowing them to simultaneously ensure a secure, high standard, whilst striving to obtain the strategic and operational goals of the company. Written with practicality and convenience in mind, this book is an ideal tool for those without specialised technical expertise seeking to understand IT controls and their design, implementation, monitoring, review and audit issues.
