Indirectly, IT and information security governance programs may impact stakeholder assessed entity value. Regardless of organizational formation — corporation, partnership, co-operative, or agency — management has a generally accepted duty to plan and enact strategies permitting the entity’s survival under less than idealistic conditions.
