The Influence of Security Risk Management: Understanding Security’s Corporate Sphere of Risk Influence
Understand the factors that limit the security function’s influence in corporate risk management and learn strategies to increase the security function’s importance in risk management discussions and decisions. Download the Risk Influence report today.
This new research from the ASIS Foundation found that most security leaders report that their influence in corporate risk decision making is often limited and lags behind other areas of the business. An extensive literature review and 11 focus groups comprised of a variety of business executives, from security directors to CISOs to CEOs to facility managers, the researchers uncover the reasons for security’s limited influence and reveal how security leaders who achieve strong risk management positions in their organizations got there.
The Executive Summary provides a solid overview of the findings, including an impressive table enumerating the barriers to influence and what the researchers recommend security professionals do as a result. The Full Report carries the detail behind the findings, including the results of an extensive literature review that included a detailed analysis of 22 standards and guidelines from various organizations that inform the topic of corporate risk management. And finally, the report’s findings are summarized in nine key findings, each of which is described and presented here as a module.
Finding 1: The Specialist vs. The Generalist
Finding 2: Organizational Leaders See Security as an Operational Risk Concern
Finding 3: Enterprise Security Risk Management (ESRM) Is Not Yet Achieved
Finding 4: Security Professionals Need to Engage Better with Corporate Decision Makers
Finding 5: Security Risk Diagnosis and Security Risk Treatment Are Not a Singular Activity
Finding 6: Organizational Context Has a Significant Impact on Security’s Risk Influence
Finding 7: Security as a Brand Lacks Professional Respect
Finding 8: Language Is a Significant Issue
Finding 9: Influence Is Impacted by Characteristics of the Individual
