Managing IT Risk

January 2, 2007

Managing IT risk is easy, but it’s important. Let’s take a closer look at some of the types of risks that organizations are facing. There are a range of both internal and external risks, all of which may have both direct and indirect impacts on a business.
Two potential areas of risk include security and compliance. For example, security breaches, such as viruses or network intrusions are well-known and easily identifiable security risks for almost all companies and networks. But security risks also include the theft of data from internal sources, its use or alternation by unauthorized personnel (this can quickly become a large compliance problem) and other types of data alternation, deletion or copying.
