As the senior-level manager of Evention, the CEO plays a critical role in authorizing and overseeing the organization’s information systems. The CEO serves as the authorizing official for assessments of all Evention information systems and must grant approval before operations can commence.

The CEO’s primary responsibilities in this regard include:

Providing Vision and Leadership for Information Security
The CEO is responsible for developing and implementing an information security strategy that aligns with Evention’s overall mission and business objectives. This involves directing the planning and execution of enterprise-wide IT and security initiatives to ensure the confidentiality, availability, and integrity of Evention’s information assets.

The CEO must provide clear vision and strong leadership to foster a culture of security awareness and cyber-risk management throughout the organization. This includes advocating for the necessary financial and human resources to develop and maintain robust information security controls.

Participating in Governance Processes
As a member of Evention’s senior management team, the CEO plays a crucial role in the organization’s strategic and operational governance. This includes advising executive leadership on the budgetary requirements for information systems and security controls, particularly those mandated by contractual obligations or regulatory requirements.

The CEO is responsible for maintaining critical information system documentation and ensuring the proper application of security controls. They must make and be accountable for operational decisions regarding the use and management of Evention’s information systems.

Developing and Maintaining Information Security Structure
The CEO is charged with developing and sustaining an appropriate information security structure that addresses the evolving needs of the business. This includes implementing processes for managing access to information systems, as well as other controls to ensure compliance with Evention’s information security and privacy policies.

The CEO must ensure that the organization’s information security policy is frequently reviewed and updated as necessary to keep pace with changes in the technological, regulatory, and threat landscapes. They are responsible for overseeing the execution of the policy and holding employees accountable for compliance.

Ensuring Compliance and Enforcement
Regular audits are conducted to assess Evention’s adherence to its information security standards and policies. These audits may be performed by authorized internal personnel or by external parties at the discretion of management.

Users are required to observe and follow Evention’s information security policies, standards, and procedures at all times. Non-compliance may result in disciplinary action, up to and including termination of employment, unless prohibited by applicable law.

Evention’s information security policy outlines the organization’s holistic approach to managing information security. The policy addresses the purpose, scope, roles, responsibilities, management commitment, and compliance requirements per ISO 27001 guidance. All policy, procedures, standards, and guidelines are created and maintained by the appropriate responsible parties, and are reviewed and updated annually or upon significant organizational change.

Through their leadership, vision, and accountability, the Evention CEO plays a pivotal role in ensuring the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of the organization’s information systems and data. Their strategic oversight and operational decision-making are critical to Evention’s long-term success and resilience in the face of evolving cyber threats.

IT Governance Model
This policy establishes Evention’s IT governance model, which is designed to protect the organization’s information assets. Information is a critical asset for Evention, as sound business decisions rely on having reliable and timely data. Maintaining the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of information is essential for good decision-making and protecting Evention’s intellectual property.

The purpose of the IT governance model is to provide the organizational framework and decision-making processes for effectively managing IT security documentation and initiatives across the design, implementation, and monitoring stages. It outlines how Evention will ensure IT security is managed efficiently and effectively to achieve the organization’s objectives.

The governance model applies to all of Evention’s IT security management processes, policies, standards, procedures, and guidelines. The Evention CEO serves as the authorizing official responsible for approving assessments of the organization’s information systems before they can be put into operation.

Management Commitment
Evention’s senior management team recognizes the critical importance of IT governance and has authorized the CEO to establish an IT security governance model to support the organization’s mission. This demonstrates the leadership’s commitment to effective IT security management.

Compliance, Enforcement, and Sanctions
Regular audits will be performed to assess compliance with the IT security standards. Users are required to follow all Evention policies, standards, and procedures, and non-compliance may result in disciplinary action up to and including termination. Employees are expected to report any suspected policy violations.

IT Security Governance 
Evention will maintain a comprehensive set of IT security governance documentation, including:

Policies – Formal, high-level statements of the organization’s goals, objectives, and acceptable procedures related to IT security. Compliance is mandatory.

Guidelines – General recommendations and best practices that support the policies. Guidelines are not mandatory.

Procedures – Detailed instructions for how to accomplish specific IT security-related tasks.

All governance documentation will be reviewed and updated annually or upon significant organizational changes. The Document Revision History will track any updates.

Governance Oversight and Approval Process
An Information Security Working Group composed of key stakeholders, including the CEO, will be responsible for creating, reviewing, and approving all IT security governance documentation. The working group will use a defined approval workflow that culminates in CEO sign-off before policies are disseminated.

We look forward to continuing to deliver secure solutions and services to our customers, and we welcome any questions or feedback you may have regarding our ISO 27001:2022 certification. Thank you for your continued trust in Evention.
