Did you know that organizations face approximately 130 data breaches every year? That is the cost companies have to pay when they do not have the means and skills to tackle IT issues. However, advanced technologies are becoming more ingrained in people’s daily lives. So, the only path to take is to have a great risk culture. You need a system to save your systems from getting into the wrong hands. In this article at Invensis Learning, Ingrid Horvath shares guidelines to help create a corporate risk culture to tackle modern-day technology-related vulnerabilities.
How to Build a Robust Corporate Risk Culture
Awareness Is the Key
Sixty percent of the C-suite respondents of a recent study believe cybersecurity is the most crucial agenda for any company. So, discover all the looming risks that threaten to cause issues and address them now. Not only that, but also have a proper risk mitigation process planned well in advance. Establish risk measures to avoid falling prey to any.
Make Processes Scalable Over Time
Organizations strive to grow every day. The catch is the more opportunities you get, the more risks you encounter. So, your risk management platforms must match your scalability criteria to have a strong risk culture. If current systems cannot afford modernization, you should build a process to migrate data seamlessly to the new applications.
Keep Engaging Stakeholders
A risk culture cannot be one person’s job. It should include the entire team—customers, sponsors, vendors, managers, and staff. Each plays a specific and important role in the risk management event. So, ensure that all stakeholders prioritize items the way you want to.
Inculcate Risk Culture Values
If you want your risk management strategy to work, encourage people to embrace the risk culture. This should include all, irrespective of who belongs where in the corporate hierarchy. So, conduct risk management workshops to help the workforce understand and embrace the compliance environment.
Have Regular Risk Checkpoints
Risks are ever-evolving. So, you cannot have a long gap between their evaluation cycle. In fact, you should keep reviewing and checking for new risks throughout a project cycle. Keep doing the same even after the project has ended to address ongoing challenges.
Keep the Communications Open
A risk channel is necessary for effective communication for better incident responses. All departments should be able to get hold of all stakeholders at all times. That should be imperative to uphold a strong risk culture.
Have proper guidelines to help the workforce know what to do during a risk crisis. Assign the roles and responsibilities so that risks can be mitigated quickly.
