   Information assurance is the bedrock upon which enterprise decision-making is built. Without assurance, enterprises cannot feel certain that the information upon which they base their mission-critical decisions is reliable, confidential, secure and available when needed.

   Everyone is aware of the need for information security in today's highly networked business environment. Information is arguably among an enterprise's most valuable assets, so its protection from predators from both within and outside has taken center stage as an IT priority.

 The specialised nature of information systems (IS) auditing and the skills necessary to perform such audits, require standards that apply specifically to IS auditing. One of goals of the Information Systems Audit and Control Association, Inc.® (ISACA®) is to advance globally applicable standards to meet its vision. The development and dissemination of the IS Auditing Standards are a cornerstone of the ISACA professional contribution to the audit community. The framework for the IS Auditing Standards provides multiple levels of guidance.
 

 Boards and executive management have long known the need for enterprise and corporate governance. However, most are beginning to realize that there is a need to extend governance to information technology as well, and provide the leadership, organizational structures and processes that ensure that the enterprise¡¯s IT sustains and extends the enterprise¡¯s strategies and objectives.

 Established for and committed to the development of world-class strategic research, the IT Governance Institute's vision is to be "the recognized global leader in IT governance, control and assurance."

 Today's public and private sectors face staggering challenges and responsibilities in balancing the manpower and capital resource investments required by their information systems and related technologies.

 To provide the necessary solutions and bring international consensus to the multitude of IT governance concerns facing today's enterprises, the Institute conducts high-quality research specifically addressing these critical issues.
