Trying to keep up with today's risk landscape is a task that ranks somewhere between difficult and impossible. New and emerging technologies, along with a complex array of digital tools and systems, are ratcheting up the stakes. Yet, it's critical for CIOs and other IT and business leaders to keep up with rapidly unfolding security events and trends. A recent research report from Deloitte, "The Future of Risk: New Game, New Rules," offers insights into the risks and potential responses for 10 critical areas of business and IT. "These factors have the potential to significantly alter the risk landscape for companies around the world and change how they respond to and manage risk," the report noted. Deloitte also outlines significant opportunities for enterprise leaders. "For leaders today, risk can be used as a tool to create value and achieve higher levels of performance. It's no longer something to only fear, minimize and avoid." Here's a look at how today's landscape is evolving and what you need to know.
