PwC conducted research for the 4th edition of the IT Governance Institute’s (ITGI1) Global Status Report on the Governance of Enterprise IT (GEIT) published January 2011.

In April 2011, PwC prepared a sub-section of data from the Canadian respondents that reviewed the differences in how Canadian small businesses (less than 500 employees) approach IT governance compared to larger firms (more than 500 employees).

“PwC” is the brand under which member firms of PricewaterhouseCoopers International Limited (PwCIL) operate and provide services. Together, these firms form the PwC network. Each firm in the network is a separate legal entity and does not act as agent of PwCIL or any other member firm. PwCIL does not provide any services to clients. PwCIL is not responsible or liable for the acts or omissions of any of its member firms nor can it control the exercise of their professional judgment or bind them in any way.
Note to Editors: PwC changed its name from PricewaterhouseCoopers to PwC in the fall of 2010. “PwC” is written in text with a capital “P” and capital “C.” Only when you use the PwC logo is the name represented in lower case.
