Roles and Responsibilities

An entity’s controlling and monitoring activities should reflect management’s strategy for ensuring an adequate IT control system. Consequently, IT policies, directives, standards, procedures, and rules should have a one-to-one or one-to-many correspondence with the assessed effectiveness and efficiency in addressing managements risk appetite. Within this context, IT control policies and directives are commonly considered high-level governance documentation while standards, procedures, and rules are commonly considered detail-level governance documentation. Since IT managers plan, direct, and support technology deployments; an IT manager’s duties should include establishing departmental policies, procedures, and standards for ensuring the right-sizing of IT controls.
