The smart approach to Digital Transformation is bridging existing and emerging technologies by modernizing core business systems.  Such an approach allows organizations to achieve the balance of running and transforming their business at the same time.  This ultimately allows IT professionals to leverage existing investments and processes, lower risk of disruptions, and achieve a faster return on investment – ultimately allowing executives to run IT like a business.  We call that smart digital transformation.

More organizations are turning to an Integrated Risk Management path, which allows them to approach the scope of risk and audits in scalable, dynamic ways. Accomplishing tasks like security assessments, risk communications and compliance in real time has never been more important given the speed and complexity of advanced cyberattacks. However, in order to achieve a modern approach to risk management, enterprise programs must integrate vital processes such as continuous optimization, automated risk-based prioritization and insights, and the automatic operationalization of security controls. Typically, these processes occur in silos, making the need for mature, unified risk management that much more important. Join our conversation as we discuss the attributes of modern risk management programs, including better ways to strategically locate and prioritize risks, assess business risks, and mitigate current pain points for overwhelmed security teams.
