Harmonizing Business Continuity, IT Security, and IT Governance

Executive Update
Posted January 25, 2016 in Business Technology & Digital Transformation Strategies

In today’s world of business dependence on technology, it is nearly impossible to separate business continuity planning from information security governance and IT governance. At the same time, many organizations continue to deal with these important issues as separate and distinct activities. Often, business continuity is a business operations responsibility, while information security and technology governance are left to the IT department. Harmonizing these activities can streamline planning, manage costs better, and improve an organization’s ability to react appropriately and quickly when a business-impacting event occurs.
