In addition, Queensland businesses recently found themselves (and their ICT systems) at the mercy of Mother Nature.
Organisations, and their directors and officers, need to have a clear understanding of the ICT risks that the organisation faces. They must ensure that procedures are in place to deal with and manage ICT risks – whether from events such as the floods, or from a failure to effectively implement a business-critical IT system.
In this seminar, hosted in conjunction with the Australian Computer Society, Senior Associate Michael Morris and Associate Hayden Delaney from HopgoodGanim’s Intellectual Property and Technology team will discuss:
Special guest speaker Jock O’Keeffe, Director of Pacific Technology Group, will differentiate between IT governance and strategy, and outline the practices and strategic efforts of IT-committed Boards. Given the recent flood, cyclone and fire events, Jock will walk through active case studies of successful and unsuccessful governance programs.
