Setting the Framework And Ensuring Adherence

IT GOVERNANCE

IT governance encompasses the framework of policies, processes, and controls designed to align an organization's IT resources with its business objectives. Its primary purpose is to facilitate structured decision-making, risk management, and resource optimization. Effective IT governance reduces risks associated with IT operations, enhances decision-making processes, and optimizes resource allocation within the organization.

IT COMPLIANCE

IT compliance entails adhering to laws, regulations, and standards to ensure organizations operate legally and ethically. It aims to mitigate legal and ethical risks associated with IT activities, safeguard sensitive information, and maintain data confidentiality. Effective IT compliance prevents penalties and promotes secure and ethical business operations, which are important in today's rapidly evolving digital landscape.
