/EINPresswire.com/ IT Governance Ltd (ITG), an IBITGQ approved training organisation and one-stop shop for IT governance, compliance and information security expertise, has announced the successful delivery of the first Implementing IT Governance: Foundation and Principles training course in October (www.itgovernance.co.uk/products/3461). Candidates were awarded the ‘Certified in IT Governance Foundation’ (CITGF) qualification by the International Board for IT Governance Qualifications (IBITGQ).

Nowadays, organisations struggle to integrate their information technology with their business objectives. Effective IT governance is acknowledged as the key to strategic IT management in all successful organisations. However, with so many related standards and frameworks to choose from, such as ISO27001, COBITâ„¢ and ITIL, senior management is often overwhelmed with governing IT effectively without spending excessive time and cost on rigid management processes.

The three-day Implementing IT Governance training course teaches IT professionals how to create a single integrated management framework that ensures an organisation’s IT truly supports and delivers on its strategies and objectives (www.itgovernance.co.uk/products/3461).

Alan Calder, Chief Executive of ITG, says: ‘The course is designed for individuals whose role requires them to have a broad understanding of IT governance and a familiarity with the wide range of frameworks, standards and methodologies in use, from the COBIT IT governance/management framework and the corporate governance standard ISO38500 through to the IT Infrastructure Library (ITIL) and the ISO27001 information security management standard. This course enables delegates to understand each of the existing frameworks and standards, to see them in their context, and to appreciate how to use each standard as part of an integrated approach to improving governance, risk management and compliance’.

Alan Calder, author of many governance publications including Corporate Governance and IT Governance: A Pocket Guide, is leading the course. It is carefully structured, so that it positions IT governance in its wider context, and then progresses through the essential framework building blocks to enable any organisation to achieve effective and practical implementation.

Each course includes 18 topical sessions to help organisations adjust to the ever-changing IT environment and will cover key issues, such as internal control and culture, the definition of drivers for IT governance, risk and control in IT governance, and performance management.
