Enterprise Risk Management Isn’t Just a Compliance Approach

Enterprise 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.

Enterprise risk assessment 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 enterprise risk assessment.
