About IT Governance Ltd
IT Governance is a unique organisation.
We source, create and deliver products and services to meet the real-world, evolving IT governance needs of today's organisations, directors, managers and practitioners.
Our objective is to make this site the one-stop-shop in Asia for comprehensive IT governance information, advice, guidance, books and tools.
We have been involved in designing, and successfully implementing, cost-effective ISO 27001 information security management systems since the standard was first promulgated. We write and publish extensively on IT governance subjects, including IT service management, project governance, regulation and compliance, and have evolved a range of leading-edge tools for IT governance, information security and regulatory compliance practitioners, available through the online shop on this site.
We approach IT governance, regulatory compliance and information security issues from a management perspective, and are committed to engaging business leaders in developing and implementing information, ICT regulatory compliance and information security strategies that enable their businesses to compete effectively in the global information economy.
Information, information technology and information security are ALWAYS business issues, never just IT ones. Top management is accountable for the organisation's information technology strategy and its deployment.
Our mission is to engage and support Boards and business executives of both public and private sector organisations so that they are better able to properly manage their information technology strategies to achieve strategic goals, protect and secure their intellectual capital and the company’s whole market value, and meet relevant corporate governance and regulatory compliance objectives.
