The Toolkit contains the following practical and powerful enablers with new and updated IT GRC specific requirements:
STEP 1: Get your bearings
- The latest quick edition of the IT GRC Self Assessment book in PDF containing 49 requirements to perform a quickscan, get an overview and share with stakeholders.
Organized in a data driven improvement cycle RDMAICS (Recognize, Define, Measure, Analyze, Improve, Control and Sustain), check the…
- 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 925 new and updated case-based questions, organized into seven core areas of process design, this Self-Assessment will help you identify areas in which IT GRC improvements can be made.
Examples; 10 of the 925 standard requirements:
- Is the full extent of a given risk and its priority compared to other risks understood? Failure to address the most important risks first leads to dangerous exposures. Nearly all managers believe that their risks are the most important in the enterprise (or at least they say so) but whose risks really matter most?
- Policy compliance is closely related to IT governance. Compliance has much to do with defining, controlling and governing security efforts. How does your organization respond to security events?
- Do you know in a fairly precise sense the data used by each application and can you place a value on that data. Is it a database with credit card numbers or is it inventory control software?
- Are IT governance integration strategies, tactics and mechanisms in line with the type value drivers and IT governance differentiation employed by your organization (now and in the future)?
- 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)?
- Have the major, foreseeable potential threats (i.e.: anything that hinders governments ability to successfully deliver the project and achieve the project objectives) been identified?
- Improve information for decision making (e.g.: provide the ability to report on certain statistics or outcomes that could not previously be reported; perform more in-depth analysis)?
- Especially for key partners, a site visit is in order to evaluate how well what the partner says matches what it does for example, how easy is it to gain physical access to servers?
- What data from current operations or the markets where you operate do you need, and if you had that data, would it help you do a better job identifying emerging critical risks?
- Is the general auditor or chief audit executive regularly asking what should you be doing to demonstrate sufficient control and oversight with respect to information security?
Complete the self assessment, on your own or with a team in a workshop setting. Use the workbook together with the self assessment requirements spreadsheet:
