Governance for Enterprise IT — Delivering Value and Managing Risk

Course Description: 

Sound Information Technology (IT) governance is critical to the modern organization.  It impacts both strategic goals and day-to-day activities across the enterprise, directly affecting the ability to obtain value from IT, as well as manage its risk to the business.  An increasing reliance on IT to deliver services, combined with the growth in laws and regulations requiring compliance, makes effective enterprise IT governance even more crucial.

Bringing enterprise IT governance into an organization requires a solid understanding of technology and business processes, in concert with an ability to interact with senior business leaders.  This helps ensure that IT aligns with and supports enterprise goals and objectives.  

This session provides the steps and approach to placing enterprise IT Governance at the head of the table.  Following ISACA's highly-regarded designation, "Certified in the Governance of Enterprise IT" (CGEIT), we'll cover a recognized framework for delivering IT governance.  The session will enable information systems professionals to ensure their organizations manage business and IT risk, while extracting full value from their IT investment.

During this two-day session, we'll work through the CGEIT's five domains, which include:

  • Framework for the Governance of Enterprise IT
  • Strategic Management
  • Benefits Realization
  • Risk Optimization
  • Resource Optimization

You'll gain a complete understanding of what's required for the CGEIT based on ISACA's 2015 Review Manual.  Along the way, we'll cover essential IT governance topics, allowing those working to develop their governance program to benefit, even if you're not pursuing the CGEIT.

  • Framework for IT Governance
