IT risk management

Information technology risk management.

What information technology risk is, why it matters, why it’s different from cyber risk, and why it’s not just a concern for the IT department.

Key information and topics covered 

Information technology is ubiquitous in our lives. Nearly every one of us has a smartphone (or perhaps multiple) supported by major communication networks across the globe. While the vehicles we travel in have a purely mechanical lineage, today they are integrated with digital sensors and displays to keep us safe (not to mention the TV in the back to keep the kids occupied). When traffic control systems fail, our cities can grind to a halt.
