- governance : "Governance" is derived from the Greek verb kubernáo meaning "to steer". A governance system enables multiple stakeholders in an enterprise to have an organised say in evaluating conditions and options, setting direction and monitoring performance against enterprise objectives. Setting and maintaining the appropriate governance approach is the responsibility of the board of directors or equivalent body. (†1105)
- information governance : GEIT (Governance of Enterprise IT) is not an isolated discipline, but an integral part of enterprise governance. While the need for governance at an enterprise level is driven primarily by delivery of stakeholder value and demand for transparency and effective management of enterprise risk, the significant opportunities, costs and risk associated with IT call for a dedicated, yet integrated, focus on GEIT. GEIT enables the enterprise to take full advantage of IT, maximising benefits, capitalising on opportunities and gaining competitive advantage. (†1106)
