Individuals, businesses and governments face risk daily. Risk is manifested in different forms and may be described as business, non-business, or financial. Irrespective of the type of risk, it’s important to remember the basic goals of security – to maintain confidentiality and integrity, while also ensuring the availability of data and systems. Organizations and governments usually employ different approaches to mitigating risks, but with a good understanding and consideration for risk elements including (i) vulnerabilities, (ii) threats & threat agents, (iii) impact, and (iv) likelihood. Other considerations include an organization or government’s appetite for risk, business goals, as well as internal and external drivers (laws, regulations, and standards). Proven strategies to deal with risk employ an enterprise risk management approach, and also rely on risk management frameworks including but not limited to: NIST’s risk management framework, ISACA’s risk IT framework, and COBIT 2019.
