Master Class Governance & Management of Digital Assets

Master Class Governance & Management of Digital Assets - Overview


Information technology (IT) has become crucial in the support, sustainability, innovation and growth of enterprises. As a result, digital capabilities will increasingly determine which companies will create value and which ones will lose value.

New laws, regulation and public expectations have pushed IT related Governance, Risk, and Compliance (GRC) topics high up on the boardroom agenda. Organizations, both large and small, need skilled professionals who can ensure that IT policies and processes are supporting the organization’s strategies and objectives.
