- Example pre-filled Self-Assessment Excel Dashboard to get familiar with results generation
Then find your goals...
STEP 2: Set concrete goals, tasks, dates and numbers you can track
Featuring 965 new and updated case-based questions, organized into seven core areas of process design, this Self-Assessment will help you identify areas in which Information technology governance improvements can be made.
Examples; 10 of the 965 standard requirements:
- While it seems technically very likely that smart contracts can be programmed to execute the lifecycle events of a financial asset, and that those assets can be legally enshrined in computer code as a smart asset, how are they governed by law?
- Does the information security function actively engage with other critical functions, such as it, Human Resources, legal, and the privacy officer, to develop and enforce compliance with information security and privacy policies and practices?
- Does your organization constantly monitor in real time your networks, systems and applications for unauthorized access or anomalous behavior such as viruses, malicious code insertion, or break-in attempts?
- Do you have KPIs that are oriented toward general performance capabilities measure processes rather than discrete project initiatives? Do they answer questions such as: how well are you doing financially?
- Does your organization have any software product that has a tuning process i.e. when one part changes or has new components added or a different vendor adds something to it, all parts are evaluated?
- Governance, which encompasses all of the decision making and project management for an application, begins with business case development. Does it really make sense to build this application?
- Do you have a written information security strategy that seeks to cost-effectively measure risk and specify actions to manage risk at an acceptable level, with minimal business disruptions?
- Are security-related activities such as hardware configuration changes, software configuration changes, access attempts, and authorization and privilege assignments automatically logged?
- Primary alignment - is the initiative key to achieving the theme or objective (i.e.: if the initiative does not go ahead, the theme or objective is at great risk of not being achieved)?
- Does your organization regularly review and revise its data content management policies to assure that only the data necessary for meeting direct needs are collected and/or maintained?
