Key Challenges Addressed

Most organizations realize the importance of risk assessments and related risk management but often discover that the task is more involved than anticipated.

The way business is conducted is continually changing. The expansion of traditional network boundaries - and a greater reliance on outsourcing and third parties - has created interconnected supply chains that increase the number of risks and vulnerabilities.

The challenge for organizations is qualifying and quantifying these risks so they can be addressed within a flexible and adaptive risk management framework. This requires strong expertise in the technologies that are driving greater interconnectivity between organizations' operations and systems.

Specifically, they must understand modern cloud infrastructure, the convergence of IT and OT technologies, and the implications of modern working models (like remote working).
