Cybersecurity & IT Governance

RCSA provides a structure for aligning IT strategy with business strategy by helping organisations follow formal IT and cyber frameworks. We help organizations produce measurable results toward achieving their strategies and goals taking into consideration stakeholders as well as the needs of staff and the processes they follow.

Organizations today are subject to many regulations governing the protection of confidential information, financial accountability, data retention and disaster recovery, among others. They’re also under pressure from shareholders, stakeholders and customers.

To ensure organisations meet internal and external requirements, RCSA offers organizations a service to implement formal IT and cyber governance programs that aligns to best practices and controls.

Implementing a comprehensive IT governance program requires a lot of time and effort, our dedicated team of professionals relieves any organisation of such pressures by ensuring both small entities, larger ones and more regulated organizations achieve full-fledged IT and cyber governance.

RCSA does this by advising, implementing and managing the following among other frameworks:

  • COBIT: Published by ISACA, COBIT is a comprehensive framework of “globally accepted practices, analytical tools and models” designed for governance and management of enterprise IT. With its roots in IT auditing, ISACA expanded COBIT’s scope over the years to fully support IT governance. The latest version is COBIT 5, which is widely used by organizations focused on risk management and mitigation.
  • ITIL: Formerly an acronym for Information Technology Infrastructure Library, ITIL focuses on IT service management. It aims to ensure that IT services support core processes of the business. ITIL comprises five sets of management best practices for service strategy, design, transition (such as change management), operation and continual service improvement.
  • COSO: This model for evaluating internal controls is from the Committee of Sponsoring Organizations of the Treadway Commission (COSO). COSO’s focus is less IT-specific than the other frameworks, concentrating more on business aspects like enterprise risk management (ERM) and fraud deterrence.
  • CMMI: The Capability Maturity Model Integration method, developed by the Software Engineering Institute, is an approach to performance improvement. CMMI uses a scale of 1 to 5 to gauge an organization’s performance, quality and profitability maturity level.
  • FAIR: Factor Analysis of Information Risk (FAIR) is a relatively new model that helps organizations quantify risk. The focus is on cyber security and operational risk, with the goal of making more well-informed decisions.
