If you work at the top of the organization and/or involve in defining the governance system, if you have to understand the governance system of your organization, or if your operational tasks are influenced by the governance system in your organization, then you can learn about some good tools that can really help.

This session will not make anyone a specialist in governance but will provide at the very minimum a definition of what governance is and why it is important to any organization.

The session will also present three different tools that are available to anyone involved with governance, that is:

  1. The ISACA COBIT framework;
  2. The ISO/IEC 38500 IT Governance standard; and
  3. The upcoming ISO 37000 Organizational Governance standard.

All three can help a lot in understanding what is governance, the governance and management responsibilities, and the governance system.
