Corporate governance over IT, enterprise IT risk management and IT regulatory compliance (commonly referred to together as "GRC" have become top business priorities for key business stakeholders. Organizations that want assurances that IT is a sustainable strategic asset must move to design, implement and maintain a mature and measurable GRC program. It is clear that IT is a key dependency to enabling economic and business success. If left unmonitored, IT can pose significant risk to the achievement of business objectives: The inability to deliver IT services in a timely, consistent and cost effective manner; The loss of customer and corporate assets; The inability to comply with the requirements of external regulators.
This course will offer security professionals an introduction to why a GRC program is important.
