The downturn has moved the rate of change to entirely new level. Deepening cost pressures and organizational transition have opened new risks and made everyone’s job more challenging. With downsizing comes process disruption and organizational gaps. Business partners, squeezed by the same forces, are themselves growing risks. And the downturn seems to have also increased innovation among economically motivated criminals.
In this workshop, CISOs/directors of information security discussed how companies are assessing and managing these new risks. Using a moderated roundtable, panel discussions, and structured breakouts, we explored how firms are assessing, rating, and managing:
Evolving threats: Many firms have noticed a rise in attacks and new innovation among cyberthieves. Is this real and should we expect more? How do you assess these new risks and prepare your organization?
New internal risk: Almost every organization is facing in new levels of transition. With organizational changes come new risks. Shifting roles often open gaps in process execution and erode policy compliance. Employees leaving the firm exit with intellectual property. Those who remain are stretched ever more, making it harder to ensure good security hygiene. How do you evaluate and manage these risks?
Vendor risk: Business partners often represent one of the greatest unknowns. How do you access and rate the risk suppliers, vendors, and partners.
