Enron and IT Governance

This promises to be an interesting event. Sherron Watkins, the celebrated Enron ‘whistle blower’, will be addressing an IT governance symposium in August in Orlando. Ms Watkins is obviously doing well on the lecture circuit, but it’s hard to begrudge that, and she seems an excellent person to talk on IT governance. Enron is the starkest illustration of how vital proper governance is to the running of an organisation and the potential dire consequences of taking this lightly. Let’s hope a few CEOs go along to hear her.
