Information & Communication Technology

International Standard
ISO/IEC 38500:2008, "Corporate governance of information technology"

Marghanita da Cruz 10 July 2007

AS8015-2005 The Australian Standard for Corporate Governance of Information and Communication Technology was submitted for fast-track ISO adoption. It was published as ISO/IEC 38500:2008 Corporate Governance of information technology in May 2008, largely unchanged.

The standard for the Governance of IT provides a framework through which "Directors", those to whom they turn to for advice or those to whom they delegate responsibilities for managing the operations of the organisation, such as Senior managers, technical specialists, vendors and service providers, can understand their obligations and work more effectively to maximise the return and minimise the cost of using ICT in their organisations.
