The Risk Renaissance Can Transform Your Business
A couple of decades ago there was a push to integrate IT risk into conventional business risk thinking. This was a tough task, though, and it didn’t get far.
Then digital transformation (DX) flipped over the table. Cloud adoption, more intimate third-party relationships (partners and suppliers, for instance) plus an explosion in new types of customer/prospect interactions have permanently interwoven IT and business risk.
DX also opened the door to a blinding array of data and IP threats – some malicious, some accidental, all potentially devastating. Add to the mix a growing list of compliance concerns – industry, state, federal and even international. That’s a lot for the board to think about.
Today IT risk is business risk. Here’s how we manage it.
Cyber risk management builds upon a foundation of business risk management integrated with compliance, risk response, risk monitoring/measurement, third-party/vendor risk management and mitigation.
Digital transformation (DX) has increased our reliance on information and technology, and smart organizations adapt by iterating their cyber risk management across security, business management and governance functions. This process identifies and evaluates security threats, focusing on practices and technologies to safeguard the organization’s infrastructure and assets against external and internal threats.
The only thing that evolves faster than the business environment is the threat landscape, and staying ahead can be a challenge.
Start by understanding where you are.
How well aligned is your security program to the org’s business objectives? How well can you articulate this footing to leadership?
If you’re not 100% happy with the answers to either of these questions, have a talk with our battle-tested team of executive consultants about policies, threats and gaps. You’ll walk away with an actionable, crystal-clear roadmap charting the course to your new threat-aware, biz-focused risk-based security strategy program.

Most people think resilience is how well you take a punch. Sure, but it’s more. Resilience is elasticity. Adaptability. It’s not just bouncing back, it’s bouncing back stronger. Resilience is iterative.
Resilience derives from the thoughtful integration of people, process and technology, and it accounts for your specific context in fashioning effective, secure data governance and operational risk management practices.
How We Do It
Risk-based decision process, not a checkbox compliance approach
Operational mindset views resilience in big-picture organization terms
Integration & Strategy
Conceptual through tactical – we ensure end-to-end continuity, eliminating redundancies and fortifying vulnerabilities
It’s a question of balance. On one hand you have to worry about traditional security. On the other you have to make the most of digital transformation (DX) and the revolution it’s driving through your industry … while dealing with all the new ways DX challenges traditional security.

Risk Scoring Basics
Cybersecurity often faces risk fatigue, as newly identified risks seem more significant compared to known ones. This can result in priorities that aren’t aligned to the organization’s true risk. A risk registry limits the impact of risk fatigue and supports a full cybersecurity risk management program.
