An entity’s control environment (CE) can provide discipline and structure to processes ensuring operational, financial, and compliance requirements are adequately addressed. As an integrated component, technology has and will continue to influence the CE as well as assume activity change agent responsibility. Nevertheless, technological development and deployment is inextricably connected to the economic, social, political, and informational factors that prevail in the entity’s CE.
Managements’ interest in, and awareness of, IT capabilities (including those performed for the entity by Third Party Providers (TPPs)) is important in establishing an entity-wide consciousness of control issues. To determine appropriate IT control issues, an entity’s CE normally requires management define control emphasis through ‘assessments of importance’ between IT domain criteria and entity objectives.
Derivatively, an entity’s CE affects the IT organizational structure. Centralized structures often have a single computer processing strategy and use a single set of systems and infrastructure software, enabling tighter management control over the IT architecture. Alternatively, in decentralized structures, each profit or cost center generally has its own computer processing strategy, application programs, and infrastructure software, which may result in differences in policies and procedures and various levels of compliance at each location. Regardless, IT policies and procedures should demonstrate alignment with the entity’s mission.
