The best executive is the one who has sense enough to pick good men to do what he wants done, and self-restraint to keep from meddling with them while they do it.

How does IT General Controls and CoBiT impact your world?

As a CEO and CFO, IT Controls usually fall under the domain of IT geeks in your company. These brilliant IT geeks seek to keep the IT function running smoothly. However, the IT functions such IT security, change management and system development life cycle (SDLC) are more tactical activities typically not engaged by C-level function but nonetheless important. However, the IT Strategy must dovetail nicely and consistently with the company’s overall strategic plans. Both the C-level person and the IT geeks need to understand the goals of each other to implement the strategies of the company. This requires education and communication of both parties and how each other’s functions impact the business.

At SCG, we have worked on IT compliance projects using the CoBIT framework to ensure the company can operate smoothly, be cognizant of IT risks and have appropriate IT responses for unanticipated problems which can be used in the formulation, execution and monitoring your organizational performance.
