It’s a scary world out there. Hackers stalk your networks just waiting to access your data. Identity thieves are busily scheming how to take over your assets. Fraudsters look for ways to take advantage of your good graces for personal gain. Maybe you have total confidence in your information security efforts because your IT team is well-versed at protecting networks and data assets. But what about the business processes themselves, or the people responsible for the day-to-day operations of those processes?
Corporate security is an essential part of any organization, but all too often the role of security has remained overly focused in information technology. In essence, it’s been about creating a sturdier door with a more pickproof lock. But that’s changing. Today, security leaders are being called upon to not only manage protection and mitigate the consequences of risk, but also to proactively identify potential risks and to become better aligned with the organization’s values and ethics-based objectives.
