Digital risk is a business issue, associated with digital business processes, not just a technology issue. That new reality makes digital risk management a business imperative that no company can afford to ignore. The problem is that the threat landscape is so large and diverse that it can be difficult for small businesses to know what threats to guard against and how to make sure they’re as protected as possible.
The core of any comprehensive digital risk strategy must be a thorough review of all customer-facing digital systems and back-end technologies to look for existing vulnerabilities. That means going through every software and hardware component to make sure that no security updates or patches are missing, as well as assessing all systems to remove software that contains known vulnerabilities or that has reached end-of-life status.
It is important to recognize that cybersecurity isn’t a set-it-and-forget-it task. Having a solid foundation will soon become meaningless if business processes aren’t tailored to maintain operational security. In practice, this means creating and executing sound policies with regard to customer data retention and handling.
