Risk Management For Technology
Organizations encounter a dynamic risk environment in today’s rapidly evolving IT/Technology landscape. Technology companies confront the challenge of protecting vital assets such as intellectual property and customer data while relying on empowering technologies that can expose vulnerabilities. Balancing innovation and security becomes paramount for staying resilient in this ever-changing digital era.
68% of technology companies experience security breaches, with 47% attributing them to weaknesses in point-of-sales systems.
Technology becomes an essential industry infrastructure, creating a vast attack surface susceptible to exploitation. In an organization, the involvement of numerous suppliers, partners, and distributors poses a third-party risk, potentially damaging the company’s reputation. Beaconer offers flexible solutions and expertise in identifying technology third-party risks within your network. With near real-time data, we help you pinpoint your riskiest vendors and guide your risk decisions, empowering your IT organization to enhance its protection effectively.
The initial step involves creating a detailed inventory of all technologies utilized within the company, identifying their respective users, business areas, and purposes. This process is pivotal in determining the firm's critical technology, making it a fundamental starting point.
An Important step is to identify and understand the various IT risks that an organization may face. We conduct comprehensive technology risk assessments and analyze potential threats to information and technology systems' confidentiality, integrity, and availability.
Once third-party risks are identified, we evaluate their potential impact and likelihood of occurrence. A risk assessment typically involves assigning a risk rating to each identified risk, considering its possible financial, operational, and reputational effects on the organization.
We at Beaconer develop strategies to address and manage technology identified risks in this step. These strategies can vary depending on the nature of the risk. They involve implementing security and controls, creating redundancies, applying encryption, developing disaster recovery plans, and ensuring proper employee training and awareness programs.
The IT risk management process is dynamic and subject to regular review and improvement. Feedback from incidents, audits, and technological changes is used to refine risk management strategies continuously at Beaconer.
