Digital Risk: Managing Risk and Security in Digital Age

As the world becomes more digitized and interconnected, the door to emerging threats and leaks has opened wider. Organizations depend more than ever on digital business operations and digital products and services to compete.

Sensitive customer information, intellectual property and even the control of key machinery are all increasingly found in electronic formats. Attacks that affect these assets are much more likely to have a material impact on the entire organization, as opposed to simply the IT department.
