Governance Frameworks

 

Governance Frameworks are a set of regulations laid to govern the protection of sensitive data such as financial accountability, disaster recovery, data retention etc. Most of the frameworks are designed to help you determine the overall functioning of the IT department. To provide best practices and controls, both public sector and private sector organizations follow the frameworks.

There are many subdomains for IT governance which includes:

  • Business Continuity Management System (BCMS)
  • EU GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) and DPA (Data Protection Act)
  • ISO 27001
  • ITIL and service level management
  • Project governance
  • Risk management

In order to comply with the framework and improve the performance, MatinQ’s certified auditors include IT governance auditing in the workplace of their internal audits.

We follow a particular process for each service after conducting audits. If it is related to risk – we use COBIT and COSO; for streamline services and operations, ITIL is used; for software engineering, hardware development, service delivery & purchasing, we use CMMI. FAIR is used for assessing operational and cybersecurity risks. We have a tailored process ready for each requirement.
