In an environment of compliancy laws, regulations, and standards, information technology (IT) departments in organizations must develop comprehensive organizational policies to support compliance. One specific area in which they must develop policies is the governance of fiduciary responsibility.



As changes occur in compliancy laws, regulations, and standards regularly, IT management of YieldMore has decided to evaluate the governance of fiduciary responsibility within the organization as it pertains to the IT department.


Your team has been assigned the task of evaluating how the governance of fiduciary responsibility affects the organization’s risk.

3.     Distinguish the identified relationships as they relate to strategic, operational, and compliancy goals for the organization.
