NYC area information governance expert defines and explains information security governance, its challenges, and benefits, urges a holistic approach—in a new article from eMazzanti Technologies
HOBOKEN, N.J., May 31, 2023 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- eMazzanti Technologies, a NYC area information governance expert and MSP explains information security governance (ISG) in a new article on the eGovernance.com website. The informative article first asserts that ISG functions as a key component of any organization's governance, risk, and compliance (GRC) strategy.
Listing the primary elements of ISG, the author states that clear vision and action supported by senior management are required. He then explains several benefits of ISG, including protecting information assets, enhancing reputation, avoiding legal actions, improving efficiency, and achieving strategic goals and objectives. He concludes by discussing some ISG challenges and urges organizations to adopt a holistic, proactive, and continuous approach to ISG.
"Essential to long-term business success, ISG generates and maintains an organizational framework that aligns information security strategies with business objectives," related Greg Smith, Vice President of Services Delivery at eGovernance. "It also verifies that information security policies and procedures comply with current laws and regulations."
Below are a few excerpts from the article, "Information Security Governance: A Strategic Imperative in the Digital Age."
"According to the IBM Cost of a Data Breach Report, the average cost of a data breach in 2022 was $ 4.35 million. The report also found that 45% of breaches occurred in the cloud, with public cloud breaches costing the most. Thus, effective ISG makes financial sense."
Protect Assets and Reputation
"Effective ISG enables organizations to protect information assets from unauthorized access, disclosure, modification, or destruction. For example, effective ISG can prevent costly data breaches, cyberattacks, frauds and thefts that compromise confidential information and intellectual property."
Information Security Governance Challenges
"However, efforts to implement ISG often encounter challenges. For example, an organization may face difficulties in obtaining sufficient budget, resources, or authority for its information security initiatives if senior management does not prioritize their importance or value."
Adopt a Holistic, Proactive, Continuous Approach
"To overcome these challenges, organizations must adopt a holistic, proactive, and continuous approach to information security governance. They need to align their information security objectives with business goals and engage stakeholders in a collaborative dialogue. Organizations must also allocate adequate resources and capabilities to their information governance and security functions."

Not a one-time project or a checklist item, the ISG journey requires constant vigilance, improvement, and alignment.
