IT assurance in outsourcing

Outsourcing of non-core processes to trusted parties is not new, but seldom easy. The lack of company internal knowledge and the pressure to cut costs are often triggers to start an outsourcing program.
An important question that is not always easy to answer is: “Is our partner-to-be actually in control of the processes that will be outsourced? Is the partner compliant to all applicable laws and regulations worldwide? The fact that you cannot outsource accountability is key here!
