IT Advisory Services

Information technology is a fast growing area which leads to a lot of business opportunities; however, at the same, it could also affect the sustainability of an organisation in terms of technology related threats such as cyber-attack, development of disruptive technology, delayed digital transformation, etc. Corporate board may need to heighten its level of scrutiny and closely monitor how technological changes or development could affect their organisations.

Some questions for the board to consider:

  • Has the organisation deployed a security framework?
  • What are the top five IT risks to the organisation?
  • How is the security governance managed in the organisation?
  • Has the organisation been attacked by cyber threats or other security related incidents?
