Information Risk Management follows information as it is created, distributed, stored, copied, transformed and interacted with throughout its lifecycle.
Information-centric approach: We begin by understanding what information is critical to key business initiatives, such as growth through acquisitions or expanding partnerships. We diligently ‘follow the data’ to gain a more holistic view of all the places where it exists across the organization, where the points of vulnerability are, and what events could put the business at risk.
Risk/Reward analysis: Security investments are prioritized based on the amount of risk a given activity entails relative to the potential business reward, and in keeping with the organization’s appetite for risk.
Ensuring repeatability: Once enterprise information has been located and a risk assessment performed, our next step is to implement controls — including policies, technologies, and tools — to mitigate that risk.
