Organisations rely on technology and IT services, but the trust placed in technology is constantly under threat. Data privacy, cyber-security, cloud implementation and third-party assurance, along with ageing IT infrastructure and applications all pose challenges for business continuity.

These new and evolving IT risks must be addressed by well-designed and carefully implemented controls. This is crucial to minimise the risk of regulatory failures, negative reputational impact, financial losses and loss of critical services.
