IT Risk Management: What's Changed, What's Emerging, and What Questions You Should Be Asking

The accelerating pace in which increased business value relies upon IT and the consumption of information transformed from data in real-time is staggering.   And, in tandem, so are the rising IT exposures, threats, risks and correlated impact to your organization when something "bad" happens - unintentional or malicious.  Driving the accessibility of information to employees, partners, and clients along with emerging opportunities such as the Internet of Things are increasing security concerns for Breach Attempts and evolving malicious strategies such as Ransomware which are being employed. Big Data is impacting data protection, security, resiliency, or Disaster and Business Recovery.  And expectations are that Highly Available, Resilient Systems will work when called upon - in any such scenario. A lot has changed, more is emerging, and there are many questions you should be asking today to determine how your strategies and actions are building preparedness to recognize the threats, reduce risk and liability, and mitigate their impact and cost if [when] they occur.
