About the course

Technology such as data analytics, mobility, social media and smart embedded devices are radically transforming businesses and government. It is changing business-customer, business-business, government-citizen and people-people interactions. It is also changing business models, business processes, customer behaviours and government policies. However, although technology presents new opportunities, it also creates new challenges including that of cybersecurity resiliency.

In today’s digital environments and smart cities, technological changes are digitally disrupting how business is conducted. They open the door to a flood of data such as traffic flow, energy use, water consumption, spending habits, search patterns, browsing history, etc. These pose security issues, raise privacy concerns and threaten the safety of our critical information and infrastructure operational capability.

This course seeks to answer these challenges by providing a firm understanding and practice of enterprise digital governance mechanisms. The essence of enterprise digital governance enables the creation of a flexible system for maintaining accountability, roles and decision-making in the face of technological changes and to create value from the effective and sustainable use of assets.

This course is part of the IT Planning, Governance & Enterprise Architecture Series offered by NUS-ISS.
