Every organization must actively defend its systems. There are simply too many threats, too many potential vulnerabilities and simply not enough resources to provide 100% security. Therefore, risk management is essential. And this is the answer to the question of how an organization can best protect or defend its crown jewels.

Risk management is the fundamental instrument for making well thought-out and targeted defence strategies a reality. One of the challenges here is to identify and evaluate abstract, elusive risks uniformly throughout the organization and to communicate them in the direction of corporate management. Because it is not only up to the management to determine the risk appetite of the organization – remember: 100 percent is unrealistic. It may also be personally liable if a data breach occurs.
