We’re in the Cutter IT Journal’s Risk Special

by Penny on 7th September 2012

Over the summer, the Cutter Consortium published an edition of their IT Journal focused on fixing Enterprise Risk Management, ‘Fixing ERM: From IT Security to Human Behavior’.

Ruth and I were delighted to contribute a piece on how we feel that risk facilitation is a key part of the solution in making risk management work.

Here’s more, along with a full list of contributors and the titles of their papers:

In this issue of Cutter IT Journal, with Guest Editors Robert Charette and Brian Hagen, the consensus seems to be that many of the practices, processes, and techniques underpinning ERM continue to exhibit major flaws. These flaws, however, can be fixed to improve the effectiveness of ERM. That said, the fixes recommended will require major, sustained effort and so should not be viewed as easy undertakings. Find out how ERM can be implemented in your organization with a little diligence!
