Amid an evolving regulatory environment and increased oversight pressure, organizations face ongoing challenges to manage and comply with ever-mounting regulations that are coming their way. At the same time, organizations are focused on managing new and persistent IT risks to their business while balancing revenue growth and expense saving business priorities.
In the face of these challenges, managing IT risk and compliance has become even more critical as IT failures can lead to reputational damage, customer and market valuation loss, and an increase in privacy issues and legal exposure. In this environment, enhancing IT controls is crucial to help ensure businesses are managed and controlled appropriately, and functioning reliably.
