Professional IT Governance Specialists in Las Vegas

Contact Network Security Associates today to develop an IT governance strategy that sets out definitions, principles, definitions, and a tailored approach to organizational decisions that meet ethical, economic and industry needs.  

IT governance “provides guiding principles for members of governing bodies of organizations (which can comprise owners, directors, partners, executive managers, or similar) on the effective, efficient, and acceptable use of information technology (IT) within their organizations,” according to international ISO standards.

Network Security Associates is a Las Vegas-based IT services company specializing in IT governance. We can help your firm develop a clear IT governance policy that involves the board of directors and reflects documented business goals and policies.

What’s the Relationship Among IT Governance, risk and compliance?

CIO magazine recently interviewed Paul Calatayud, CTO at FireMon, a security management provider. Calatayud said that he believes governance, risk and compliance (GRC) are intricately linked. “While GRC is the parent program, what determines which framework is used is often the placement of the CISO and the scope of the security program. For example, when a CISO reports to the CIO, the scope of GRC is often IT-focused. When security reports outside of IT, GRC can cover more business risks beyond IT,” according to Caltayud.

At Network Security Associates, we believe that IT governance should include all high-level management decisions to ensure that they drive value. When you take the time to develop an IT governance framework, your company benefits from reduced risks and aligns information assets management with the vision of company leadership and other stakeholders on the board.

Why Is IT Governance Important?

Corporate governance is “a toolkit that enables management and the board to deal more effectively with the challenges of running a company. Corporate governance ensures that businesses have appropriate decision-making processes and controls in place so that the interests of all stakeholders are balanced.”- ICSA, The Governance Institute.

Working with Network Security Associates consultants, you can build an effective IT governance strategy that accomplishes the following goals:

  • Deliver measurable results
  • Meet relevant compliance and regulatory obligations
  • Increase ROI on IT expense
  • Comply with corporate governance or public rules for your industry

By carefully evaluating what to include in your IT governance framework, you set the stage for proper planning and implementation of IT solutions that truly match the issues you’re trying to improve. A robust internal review process also ensures that data privacy and security requirements are met.
