Vital information on how to systematically implement IT strategic and operational controls to support and enhance your organisation!

Nowadays, integrated information systems can significantly magnify the accrued benefits of a given project 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.

Making use of a clear and pragmatic presentation, this book provides a thorough description of all elements of IT controls in a systematic and detailed way, allowing managers, IT professionals, practitioners and auditors to customise examples to their own specific purpose.

It is a comprehensive tool for anyone who wishes to cement their understanding of IT controls and, most importantly, for those who aim to realise the full capacity of information systems, whilst rigorously controlling the concomitant risks.

Master IT controls concepts and issues

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.

Minimise risk and maximise benefits

This book 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.
