Introduction to IT Governance, Risk, and Compliance


As organizations become increasingly globalized and as legal environments quickly evolve, the importance of governance, risk management, and compliance continues to gain in importance. Regulatory compliance forces organizations to better manage their data as noncompliance can lead to penalties, fines, and worse. With the proper governance and risk management structures in place, an organization can better manage data and risk to improve business outcomes while adhering to regulations. This course is designed for IT professionals and other adult learners who are interested in furthering their knowledge of governance, risk management, and compliance as these relate to information technology.
