/EINPresswire.com/ Businesses can gain competitive advantage by adopting new technology such as the Cloud and Software as a Service. This approach can have huge benefits, but it introduces risks to information security and, if it goes wrong, may even threaten the survival of the organisation. What governance and control frameworks could businesses put in place to manage these risks with technology moving so quickly?
With more than 25 years’ experience in information security and risk management, Karen Worstell has written Governance and Internal Controls for Cutting Edge IT to steer businesses through the dangers.
Karen explains, “While there are books and various publications that focus on Cloud technology, Governance and Internal Controls for Cutting Edge IT goes beyond Cloud and looks at the technology opportunities some of which have been enabled as a result of the Cloud. This is about adoption of emerging technology for business benefit and how to minimise the effort required for security and IT control in order to be an early adopter.”
Published by IT Governance Publishing, Governance and Internal Controls for Cutting Edge IT covers key principles and processes to help businesses exploit new technologies, while minimising the risks that come with it. Based on practical experience and real-life models, the book examines how to establish an appropriate standard of security and control for new technology, particularly in the context of the COBIT®5 framework and affiliated standards.
Anyone thinking of adopting new technology to help their business should read this book.
