security_risk_management.jpgA study published last week sponsored by Tripwire and conducted by the Ponemon Institute found that while over 80% of security and risk professionals consider their organization's commitment to risk-based security management significant, less than 30% had a formal risk management strategy in place.

Why does such a large gap continue to exist, even as the evidence piles up that organizations with a mature risk framework are better performing and more prepared for an uncertain future?

ERM Approach to Vendor Risk Management

greatwallofchina.png?width=230What the Great Wall of China can teach us about Vendor Risk Management
