Modern Risk Management and Compliance in 2021
Risk management and assessment is the practice of assessing an organization’s security systems against possible vulnerabilities and gaps to determine how much “risk” is acceptable as part of doing business. Factors like compliance, emerging threats and changes in technology and business operations all play an immense role in how security experts manage the risk their organizations are willing to take on, and how much they will invest in their cybersecurity infrastructure.
As we pass the halfway point of 2021, we look back to some of the trends that have played a role in risk management and assessment. In some ways, the story of risk in 2021 is heavily dictated by 2020, as the COVID pandemic has fundamentally altered how companies in multiple industries worldwide continue to do business.
