    A New Approach to Managing Digital Risk

    Technology continues to propel entire industries through digital transformations, escalating digital risk, and prompting questions from the C-suite, the BOD, regulators and policy makers. Cyber-risk is the largest facet of digital risk we face going forward. Since cybersecurity is now squarely a business issue; it needs to be managed as such. A business-driven approach to managing digital risk entails taking a risk orientation to designing and operating your security operations. This approach is the only way to ensure that technologies like machine learning and data continue to propel us to our digital future.
