Information Security: A Risk Management Foundation
2016-10-06 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm EDT
The CISO as a Transformational Role in Risk Management
Organizations are complex. Exponential growth and change in technology, vulnerabilities, regulations, globalization, distributed operations, changing processes, competitive velocity, business relationships, legacy technology, and business data exposes organizations of all sizes. Keeping this complexity and change in sync is a significant challenge for boards, executives, as well as governance, risk management, and compliance professionals (GRC) throughout the business. Organizations require complete situational and holistic awareness of information risk management across operations, processes, relationships, systems, transactions, and data to see the big picture or risk and impact on performance and strategy. Risk management fails when risk issues are addressed as a system of parts that do not integrate and work as a collective whole. Information security cannot be managed in isolation. The interconnectedness of information and technology underpinning all aspects of an organization’s operations requires that the Chief Information Security Officer (CISO) be a foundational and integrated approach to risk management across the organization.
This webinar explores how understanding and managing risk in today’s environment requires a new paradigm in managing the interconnections and relationships of risk, particularly information risk. Specific topics that will be explored are:
- Pervasive use of information and technology across the organization provides a natural path for information security to step up to lead enterprise risk management strategies.
- CISOs role in managing information security risk to stay competitive in today’s economy.
- How organizations must understand information security risk and make risk-informed business decisions to manage effectively manage risk across the enterprise.
