Companies today face growing exposure to IT risk as they become increasingly dependent on the non-stop operation of information systems. In today’s world, even the board of directors is concerned about IT risk, since IT typically underpins every single business process in the company.
Typical IT risks include lost business or productivity due to downtime; liability for security breaches that expose customer data; fines for regulatory violations; and the inability to defend lawsuits due to inadequate record keeping. Not all risk comes from an unavoidable event such as a flood or an earthquake. Many IT risks are caused by operational mishaps, inadequate processes, increased regulatory requirements, or other more controllable factors.
