Ely, England, 4 October 2011 – The pressure on organisations to maintain security and comply with regulatory requirements has never been more prevalent. With an increase in security breaches from both private and public sector companies hitting the headlines and the number of hacking attacks rising, it is vital that organisations establish and put in place the correct controls. IT controls will enable the secure processing, availability, confidentiality and integrity of data, which in turn, will aid organisations in achieving their compliance obligations.
But what does ‘compliance’ mean to you? Is it a burden, a box-ticking exercise, or a way to avoid the penalties of non-compliance? Or do you see the opportunities it presents for your business?
In Compliance by Design: IT Controls that Work, the latest title to be added to the ITGP portfolio, the author Chong Ee will show you that it can be more than just a box-ticking exercise, and that your organisation can benefit from becoming compliant with the relevant national and international standards. It will show you how integrating controls into your processes will improve your security, increase your productivity, save you time and money, and increase your profits.
Chong Ee has a proven track record in the field of IT audit and compliance. He is a Certified Information Systems Auditor (CISA), and a seasoned writer and experienced presenter at IT conferences. The 2010 recipient of the Michael Cangemi Best Article/Book Award from ISACA draws upon a myriad of disciplines in this book, making it a one-of-a-kind and a must have for anyone who is looking to develop awareness and a deeper insight into IT controls or strategies and techniques to solve compliance.
