Risk management is often treated as a compliance requirement, and many companies do a great job managing financial and regulatory risk. However, truly understanding the risks to strategic initiatives and information security requires a different approach. Analyzing risk in the planning phases of a new business initiative that involves new IT systems and applications can be a large undertaking. Chances are, your organization does not have a stated risk tolerance as it pertains to information security without conducting a thorough analysis.
