Creating measures that govern technology assets and tech-based operations is vastly different from control development for other areas of an internal control system.Often, those charged with creating measures for technology do not have the technical prowess to understand all the controlled processes. This may mean depending on those that operate the technology for direction. This session is designed to provide an understanding of the scope of business technology that must be protected and operated. It then gives insight into control types that can be used and resources control creators should exploit as they develop measures. Finally, we spend time discussing what is on the technology horizon and how it may be addressed.
Once participants have completed this session they should be able to:•Understand the broad scope of technology operated by business;•Understand the steps needed to develop technology measures;•Build control measure creation processes for technology tools and methodsthat utilize all appropriate resources;•Show knowledge about how to test techcontrol measures to make sure they are working properly, and•List methods that can be used to stay abreast of new technology implemented both internally and externally in and around organizations.
The topics discussed in this session include:•What is included in “Technology” and why is it important to control.•The types of technology policies and procedures organizations should utilize.•Resources for those creating technology measures.•Reviewing and testing-then updating controls as technology evolves.•Implementing updated measures efficiency.
