IT Governance Checklist

  • United States Image

Feb 19, 2020

On February 19, 2020, the Board Effect released a tool that helps with governing information technology. By taking things a step at a time, starting an IT governance checklist, and considering it a work in progress, your board will be well on its way to understanding how it can best tackle the difficult task of overseeing IT governance.

Every year we depend on technology to help us store and manage various types of data for various purposes. Along with that comes the responsibility for managing it appropriately and according to IT governance best practices, which is a relatively new issue for boards to address. The responsibility for overseeing the management of electronic processes falls to the board of directors. This is no small task due the large number of individuals and employees that need to access the organization’s data on a regular basis.

Review the checklist on the Board Effect's website.
