New British legislation has serious implications for your company, your reporting and the design of your IT systems. Corporate fraud, illegal use of resources, sexual and racial harassment all increasingly occur in the digital domain. Directors face potentially huge fines and in some cases imprisonment for breach of the law. Are you aware of the sections of the Companies Act (audit, investigations and community enterprise), affecting IT governance? Do you know what their implications are for your business? Good IT governance is central to good organizational governance. You cannot control what you can’t measure.
