Abstract

By virtue of the multiplicity and diversity of laws regulating the field of information technology governance, those in charge of information systems in SMEs-SMIs are faced with a problematic of compliance obligation, especially that the laws are now of international and national order. This work is concerned with information systems security and the crucial role it plays to ensure an effective governance of information technology (IT). An essential component of internal control imposed by financial security laws as well as by major IT governance frameworks, the security of information systems is one main leverage for a policy of compliance and standardization. Indeed, compliance with laws and regulations with the aim of enhancing the transparency and credibility of the mechanisms of information production and operation needs the implementation of a set of procedures and controls that meet safety requirements in terms of availability, integrity and confidentiality. These procedures introduce major changes with regard, in particular, to information visibility within the business, organizational and management processes, and human resources management.
