Report: IT Governance Africa Conference 2011 PDF Print E-mail

Between November 8 and 10, 2011; the IT Governance Conference Africa took place in Sandton; South Africa. Topics included:

  • IT Governance Frameworks
  • King III
  • Information Security Implementation
  • International Data Privacy
  • Cobit 4 & 5
  • Cloud Governance
  • Information Management Strategy 
  • Web Archiving 

Hosted at the beautiful Balalaika Hotel, the conference hosts did everything to suit the Governance needs of their participants. Over 100 participants from all over Africa were present and participated actively in the sessions. King III and implementation issues as well as Cobit 5 got a lot of attention. 

The conference has shown increased maturity in various aspects of IT Governance. It became obvious that altough developing slowly, the concept of "enterprise govering IT" and not vice versa has finally found its way into practice. We see increased awareness of senior management towards strategic issues such as business IT-alignment, a central message of IT-Governance. 

For the first time, two session focusing on Information Management and Web Archiving were presented.  These young disciplines are drawing attention becasue of the fact, that "big data" or "data deluge" as we prefer to name it, will be one of the first three top challenges of organizations today and in the near future. Privacy legislation is still under way and it seems that the concepts of privacy are understood better, however, until the concept is being accepted and seen as an important factor in society might take some time. Current discussions in parliament show that the concept of privacy has many different aspects and it will be very difficult to change the behaviour of organization to respect of privacy of their customers in a way that is comparable to Europe.

See you next year in Capetown!

BoD Services include specific services for executive and non-executive members of boards. These are personal services focused on the individual coaching of the customer.

We strictly follow the "nose in - hands out" principle which allows the directors to get the necessary information  from their organisation, without directly interfering with the executives in charge. Services are on an individual basis but include:

  • Individual Risk Reporting (Project and Operational Risk)
  • Support for members of project steering committees (Preparation and execution)
  • Independent risk anaysis and 3rd party opinion / audits

  • Networking with other directors with comparable responsibility

 These services are based on a personal relationship and must be tailored to the needs of the individual customer. 

How should executive boards and board of directors (BoD) approach technology risk management? This article has the answers.

Cobit® 5 vs. Cobit® 4 Fact Sheets PDF Print E-mail

Tuesday, 23 August 2011 09:53

With a process dedicated to establishing an IT Governance framework and another to establishing a management system for the IT processes, CobiT 5 provides management with the tools they need to implement an IT governance within their organisations.

After three days at our recent  CobiT 5 workshop most participants were very clear that their plan would be to switch to CobiT 5 immediately. It is not expected that the final version of CobiT 5 will not be materially different from the current exposure draft. However the new structure of CobiT 5 is a very important change that will provide significant benefits once implemented.

The iTGN has published the major facts about Cobit® 5 three fact sheets:

Understanding the Cobit® 5 Process Model and ISO 15504

Summary Differences between Cobit® 4.1 and Cobit® 5

Cobit® 5 Readiness
