IT Governance model can be misleading…(COBIT vs ISO 38500)

IT Governance model or concept can be misleading because of the tendency within the IT sector to transpose the terms ‘management’ and ‘governance’. Almost everything that is touted today as IT Governance by the industry is actually just plain old IT management. Governance and management are fundamentally different things. Tools that used to be promoted as IT management or IT service management tools suddenly became IT governance tools. COBIT, which always regard as “the best practice for it management” or ITIL, which always regard as “the best practice for it service management”, is mentioned frequently these days as an IT governance model. An architect of the ISO-38500 standard believes the best way to ensure smooth IT operation and prevent high-profile IT project failures is to introduce director-level IT Governance. The statement of the ISO 38500 architect above that involve the director-level on the discussion of IT Governance will of course sound strange to people who do not know cle…

Apa bedanya IT Compliance dengan IT Governance?


Apa bedanya IT Compliance dengan IT Governance? Mereka yang baru bergabung di dunia teknologi informasi mungkin masih merasa asing mendengar istilah IT Compliance dan IT Governance. Memang kedua istilah ini belum terlalu lama dikenal dalam dunia teknologi informasi, baru sekitar 10 tahun yang lalu banyak dibicarakan orang.

Kepatuhan juga dapat berarti mengikuti seperangkat aturan atau rambu-rambu agar s…

Magic Quadrant for Secure Email Gateways 2013

Magic Quadrant for Secure Email Gateways 2 July 2013 ID:G00247704 Analyst(s): Peter Firstbrook, Brian Lowans VIEW SUMMARY The secure email gateway market is mature. Buyers should focus on strategic vendors, data loss prevention capability encryption and better protection from targeted phishing attacks. Market Definition/Description Secure email gateways (SEGs) provide protection from email spam and malware, and also provide outbound email content inspection and encryption of emails.

The market growth rate has leveled off, and there are no significant market entrants or acquisitions — all classic signs of a mature market. Despite the market maturity, companies can't do without SEG solut…
