Assess the Value of Internal IT Risk Management to Your Organization

Tools for risk management are usually divided between internal controls, meaning tools to prevent problems coming from inside the organization, and external controls, which means preparing to face threats and problems coming from somewhere else.

What value do you place on implementing controls to minimize insider threats to data security or confidentiality caused by intentional or unintentional actions by your employees?

Determine Your Organization's Related Pain & Frustration

In order to fully assess your level of pain (and frustration!) it’s helpful to know where you want to be. So… what does good look like?

A low pain example of Internal IT Risk Management would be: My organization has a comprehensive and actively enforced information security plan to address internal security risks including data encryption, segregation of duties, employee responsibilities, and continuous cybersecurity training responsibilities.
