This is a great question that we get more often than you expect. Let’s see the different roles that own CentinelBox depending on the size and nature of the company. For most of our clients, finance owns CentinelBox, mainly when there is a thin line between finance and audit/compliance or when systems are more cloud-based (requiring a smaller IT footprint). Larger clients with an established audit function could move this attribute from finance to audit. Our larger customers tend to have a combination, being CentinelBox owned by finance and IT, and audit as a critical component.
Who should own CentinelBox in your company depends on many factors, but we recommend considering the below points:
There is no right or wrong answer to who should own CentinelBox. Engineers and auditors developed CentinelBox for auditors to be accessible and easy to use but also technical enough for system administrators.
In summary, it does not matter who owns CentinelBox. You must ensure your internal leadership understands the use and purpose to get the most out of it.
