Understand ISO 38500: the standard for the corporate governance of IT

In the 21st century, IT governance has become a much-discussed topic among IT professionals. An IT governance framework serves to close the gap between the importance of IT and the understanding of IT, helping to improve your organisation’s competitive position.

ISO/IEC 38500 is the international standard for the corporate governance of information and communication technology. It creates a framework to ensure that the board is appropriately involved, and sets out guiding principles for governing bodies on how to ensure the effective, efficient and acceptable use of IT within their company.

This useful pocket guide is an ideal introduction for those wanting to understand more about ISO 38500. It describes the scope, application and objectives of the Standard and outlines its six core principles. It covers:

  • What is ISO/IEC 38500?;
  • The corporate governance context;
  • Scope, application and objectives;
  • Principles and model for good governance of it;
  • Implementing the six IT governance principles;
  • ISO/IEC 38500 and the IT steering committee;
