Management’s intentions for IT can be implemented manually and/or technologically. Nevertheless, effective IT policy enforcement ultimately depends on the actions of individuals and control systems responsible for monitoring assigned activities. IT policy enforcement is commonly based on monitoring activities considered critical to achieving the stated objective. An entity’s monitoring personnel rely on established and maintained activity-authority relationships to enforce management’s intentions conveyed in adopted policies. As potential legal consequences, various criminal and civil charges as well as fines and penalties could confront an entity as well as employees, if there are deviations from established IT policies.
