Yesterday at DSV, SAISec hosted a guest lecture by Professor Rossouw Von Solms on Information Security Governance.
The distinction between management and governance has been unclear, even within established frameworks. Governance is there to manage the managers. Governance, said Von Solms, is about direct and control. He also stressed executive accountability. Claiming not to understand technology will not impress a court of law. These days, a CEO can end up in jail for negligence with respect to InfoSec Governance.
