With the many compliance initiatives and increasing factual and anecdotal stories of technology projects spinning out of control, IT can no longer be a ‘black-box’ where all decision making is referred to, and the sole property of the IT specialists. All company stakeholders, including the board, C-level executives and relevant departments, must be involved in the decision making process to minimise risk and advance surety and security across their IT infrastructure. Therefore having a clear and concise understanding of the necessary internal controls and governance is a must.
Diaxion understand that establishing effective governance mechanisms is more than the establishment of internal committees. Ultimately, governance must ensure totally transparent decision making and relevant accountability chains exist. This is best achieved through the establishment of robust and thorough governance processes, structures and mechanisms to ensure the right people are receiving the right information within the right time frames.
