Robert Davis Robert Davis Profile: Robert Davis

Institutionalized information security governance defines the information assets safeguarding perimeter inside which an entity should operate. Whereas, legal compliance management ensures structural boundary segments are sturdy and the entity consistently fulfills its mission within externally imposed demarcation lines. Generally, determining an entity’s legal mandates exceeds the security function’s ambit. Nonetheless, overseeing the design, implementation and monitoring of applicable legal requirements is a security function imperative. Aligning information security governance with legal compliance management allows an entity to enhance cultural ethics while concurrently reducing judicial risks.
