Organizations today have become dependent on infrastructure and capabilities outside their enterprise boundaries, sometimes even for mission critical services, therefore, the types of risk and their interconnectedness have increased. If these risks aren’t seen from a broader perspective, they could continue to grow within their silos, emerging as a systemic, industry-wide failure at some point. With Integrated Risk Management approach, organizations can align their assurance programs and gain comprehensive visibility into both risk exposure and relationships. Common taxonomies provide better understanding of risk inter-linkages and their impact on business performance, thereby strengthen resilience, enhance agility, and promotes risk-aware decision making.
