Survey: Strong Tech Governance Drives Improved Business Outcomes

ISACA study examines how well boardrooms are safeguarding digital assets

More than 90 percent of surveyed senior business leaders agree that strong technology governance contributes to improved business outcomes and increased agility, according to ISACA’s latest research, “Better Tech Governance Is Better for Business.” Despite recognizing the link between governance and outcomes, a governance gap still exists, with 69 percent reporting that their leadership and board of director teams need to establish a clearer link between business and IT goals.

The global findings were released today at CSX 2017 North America, a Cybersecurity Nexus (CSX) conference held in Washington D.C. The data delves into corporate governance of all things digital, increased responsibilities and funding priorities as well as asking if boardrooms are doing all they can to plan, train, fund and safeguard their organization’s digital assets. The research summary, related infographic and additional resources can be found here.

“The boardroom must become hyper-vigilant in ensuring a tight linkage between business goals and IT goals, fully leveraging business technology to improve business outcomes while diligently safeguarding the organization’s digital assets,” said Matt Loeb, CEO of ISACA. “The message from our research is clear: there is much work to do in information and technology governance. Committing to a boardroom with technology savvy and experience strongly represented provides the needed foundation for organizations to effectively and securely innovate through technology.”
