The proper implementation of government and corporate governance within Egyptian institutions and companies became an absolute necessity in order to attract foreign investments, ensure accountability and data transparency, support healthy competitiveness among organizations and improve the living conditions of the citizens. This paper aims to discuss the existing challenges of governance in different countries at both the governmental and corporate levels. This research highlights the importance of applying governance within the Egyptian institutions and companies. It provides several examples of good governance, which should be assessed with the assistance and application of international standards, where elimination of corruption is a key to good governance and successful civil society with proactive awareness on human rights issues. The special attention is given to the issue of effective IT governance, which implementation became now possible through the established frameworks, standards and guidelines, including ISO 17799, COBIT, ITIL, COSO and Val IT. The discussed governance cases and examples could eventually support the understanding and implementation of the effective governance standards and tools within the Egyptian government and organizations, including Egypt Air.
