Overview


Are you exposing your business to IT risk, and leaving profit opportunities on the table? You might be if you are managing your IT risk using more traditional approaches. IT Risk, a new book based on research conducted by MIT s Center for Information Systems Research and Gartner, Inc., helps companies focus on the most pressing risks and leverage the upside that comes with vigilance.

Traditionally, managers have grouped technology risk and funding into silos. IT Risk outlines a new model for integrated risk management, which identifies three core areas you can develop to eliminate the problems that silo strategies create. The authors also offer specific ways to make the most of your new found advantage. And because IT risk is the responsibility of all senior executives not just CIOs this book describes the tools and practices in language that general managers can understand and use.

Named a top-ten managerial book of 2007 by CIO Insight magazine.
