In the world of business (and innovation), “risk management” does not necessarily mean risk prevention. Often, there will be core areas where your company is willing to take risks in order to generate returns, such as entering a new market or developing a new product. Rather than avoid all risk, leaders of successful organizations assess the risks inherent in any situation and use them to drive company vision, strategies, plans, and processes. This ExecBlueprint describes an integrated approach for managing performance, risk, and compliance through centralized governance processes. It is called “GRC” (governance, risk management, and compliance), and it provides a framework for sharing policies, processes, and documents at the enterprise level to improve communication, create organizational efficiencies, and reduce unnecessary risk. How can GRC benefit an organization? When leaders are able to define their “risk appetite” and quantify all the risks facing them, they can make more appro

Around-the-clock global operations, data growth, and server virtualization all together can complicate protection and recovery strategies. They affect when and how often you can perform backups, increase the time required to back up, and ultimately affect your ability to successfully restore. These challenges can force lower standards for recovery objectives, such as reducing the frequency of backup jobs or protecting fewer applications, both of which can introduce risk. High-speed snapshot technologies and application integration can go a long way toward meeting these needs, and they have quickly become essential elements of a complete protection strategy. But snapshot copies have often been managed separately from traditional backup processes. Features like cataloging for search and retrieval as well as tape creation usually require separate management and do not fully leverage snapshot capabilities. To eliminate complexity and accelerate protection and recovery, you need a solution

Managing risk has never been so important for businesses, nor has it been so difficult. New globalresearch commissioned by SAP has revealed that an increasingly complex business and risk environment is severely challenging companies.
Research conducted by The Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU), sponsored by Oracle,
provides answers. The results show that a proactive security strategy backed by a fully
engaged C-suite and board of directors reduced the growth of cyber-attacks and
breaches by 53% over comparable firms. These findings were compiled from responses
by 300 firms, across multiple industries, against a range of attack modes and over a
two-year period from February 2014 to January 2016.
The lessons are clear. As cyber-attackers elevate their game, the response must be an
enterprise solution. Only C-suites and boards of directors marshal the authority and
resources to support a truly enterprise-wide approach. In sum, proactive cyber-security
strategies, supported by senior management, can cut vulnerability to cyber-attack in half.

Stay ahead of the evolving threats.
Organized crime is driving the rapid growth and sophisticated evolution of advanced threats that put entire website ecosystems at risk, and no organization is safe.
The stealthy nature of these threats gives cybercriminals the time to go deeper into website environments, very often with severe consequences.
The longer the time before detection and resolution, the more damage is inflicted. The risk and size of fines, lawsuits, reparation costs, damaged reputation, loss of operations, loss of sales, and loss of customers pile up higher and higher.
The complexity of website security management and lack of visibility across website ecosystems is further impacted by the fact that it is nearly impossible to know how and where to allocate resources.
Website security must be evolved in line with these growing threats and challenges.
