Schools and universities must be able to link business processes to IT systems and assets so that they can view the interdependence between those processes.
Using any or all of the IT best practice frameworks also helps organizations harmonize control and security practices, simplifying control testing efforts.
By implementing a top-down approach that maps business processes to IT services and the underlying assets and personnel, technology can evaluate risks to business performance and make better and proactive decisions.
With better decision support, IT can prioritize and respond to risks/events that can affect critical business processes or business objectives to reduce loss and mitigate risk.
A typical business process mapping and harmonization exercise can take as much as 15 weeks to complete.
