White Papers
  • The 6 Dimensions (& Obstacles) of Risk Management Overcoming the barriers to an integrated risk management program requires a strategy that is built around key principles of risk management, coupled with an understanding of the nuances of your business. The end goal of risk management is to help the business achieve objectives and improve decision-making. However, the implementation of a risk management program is not a simple “step 1, step 2, step 3” type of process. View the white paper to learn more about the six fundamental dimensions of risk management that should be examined to assess overall effectiveness when establishing your risk management program. Each of these dimensions is associated with a barrier to success – and when building your strategy, it is beneficial to understand and plan for these obstacles.
  • The 4 Phases of Your Risk Management Journey No organization can achieve complete visibility into risk. There is no crystal ball that will magically outline opportunity, map risks and provide a distinct, unobstructed path to success. However, there are specific stages organizations can move through in building an integrated risk management program. View the white paper to discover how the RSA Archer® maturity-driven approach enables organizations to create a road map for the course of their GRC program, allowing them to track the progress of their journey toward risk management maturity.

  • How GRC Can Help You Stay a Step Ahead of Ransomware With ransomware growing at 350% annually,* many federal, state and local governments, and private-sector businesses, are focused on the question of how to better prepare for the next attack. View the white paper to discover the important role that governance, risk and compliance (GRC) solutions can play in helping organizations prepare for and respond to the next ransomware assault on IT systems. *Cisco 2017 Annual Cybersecurity Report (2017)

  • RSA Archer® Maturity Model Snapshot: IT & Security Risk Management Another day, another security threat. That’s the reality in every organization today. But what’s the most effective way to respond? Sure, you can add a new layer of defense for every new threat. But you can only sustain that approach for so long—especially when every layer brings a whole new wave of security data to protect. As if that weren’t enough, there are new challenges looming. With traditional barriers vanishing and external entities playing a larger role, it’s tough to see where risks are coming from. It’s also easy to lose sight of security’s strategic value when every moment is spent fending off immediate threats. Adding more layers of defenses only adds to the complexity of the problem. It’s far more effective to look ahead to ways to mature the organization’s IT security processes. That’s the way to ultimately reduce the cost of security, increase its effectiveness and make it a strategic enabler of growth.
  • RSA Archer® Maturity Model Snapshot: Operational Risk Management You can’t avoid operational risks in business today. But you can control how your organization responds. Are you able to quickly recognize high risk and get in front of it? Or do you struggle with identifying where risk has the potential to damage the business? Do you take a proactive approach to managing risk, or are your business teams constantly scrambling to limit damage when incidents occur?

  • Business Risk Management Part 2: 7 Steps to Build a GRC Framework Look at information security through the lens of business risk, and you’ll begin to make decisions about security in light of their impact on the business. A GRC framework for business risk management can help you identify key business priorities and align them with security information and decisions. View part two of this on-demand webcast series. This session details a seven-step methodology for a GRC-based business risk management framework, including tips for: Defining what information needs to be protected and identifying the location and amount of important information Documenting processes and enterprise risk controls—documenting the activities as business processes and documenting the risks associated with the processes Determining levels of inherent and residual risk and answering the question of what to do with a residual risk level that exceeds risk tolerance and appetite
