What’s Behind the C-Suite Disconnect on Risk
September 1, 2015
Back in March, IT Business Edge published an article titled What’s Behind the C-Suite Disconnect on Risk. This article references Protiviti’s Executive Perspectives on Top Risks for 2015 study, but it also asks a very important question: When does an IT risk (specifically cybersecurity) become strategic? All to often, IT risks are viewed as tactical issues that need to be addressed rather than a strategic impact to the organization. It often isn’t until a major news story breaks (i.e. natural disaster, major security breach) that IT risks raise to a strategic level.
What do you think of this article? Why else do you think the C-Suite may not have a consistent risk perspective?
