Governing IT: Setting Control Objectives – Part V

Robert Davis Robert Davis Profile: Robert Davis

Using SWOT, each IT objectives analysis team member should have conversations with at least four other individuals from the entity to solicit their situational assessment of the current state of IT controls. At a minimum, the four individuals — queried independently by each team member involved in the SWOT exercise — should include: someone two levels senior from themselves, someone from a different functional area, someone known for creative thinking, and someone with a reputation for levelheaded decisions. Subsequently, in a group setting, IT team members should discuss and compare their individual perspectives to arbitrate and document IT control consensus.
