Why Focus on IT Risk ?
The current economy brings with it a new spectrum of IT-related business risk. Economic hard times, emerging technologies, the extended enterprises all create their own challenges for IT. The impacts of IT-related risk are also constantly increasing, such as those of a bank’s ATM network not being available, major project delays or failures, reputational impacts of the loss of confidential customer data, or missed business opportunities due to an inflexible enterprise architecture. These and other factors are driving many organisations to optimise the management of IT risk.
The Risk IT Framework
ISACA has launched the first version of the Risk IT framework on November 20, 2009. Risk IT is designed to help enterprises manage IT-related risk and to make appropriate risk-adjusted decisions. The framework explains IT risk and enables users to integrate IT risk into the overall enterprise risk management of the organisation; make well-informed decisions about the extent of risk, risk appetite and the risk tolerance of the enterprise; and understand how to respond to the risk.
The Risk IT framework is aligned with major Enterprise Risk Management standards and translates their principles for IT. IT Risk is considered very broadly and includes IT Benefit/Enablement risk, IT Program and Project Delivery Risk and IT Operations and Service Delivery Risk.
