Responding to the New Information Risk Landscape

Responding to the New Information Risk Landscape
This paper analyses the trends and changing priorities of the emerging information security landscape, setting out a new action agenda for managing future information risks across a volatile and increasingly externalised business environment.

Social networks, data mining and Cloud computing are transforming the scale, exposure and control of our intellectual assets. Data is becoming 'superabundant', increasing at an annual compound rate of 60%. Large amounts of sensitive, critical and valuable information are now stored, communicated and processed outside of the corporate perimeter. Growing numbers of individuals have greater access to huge volumes of data. Security is becoming harder to manage, while threats are growing in sophistication and impact, and regulators are threatening greater penalties for data breaches.

Yesterday's security solutions do not meet the challenges of the new information risk landscape. A strategic inflection point has been passed: a time from which the effectiveness of traditional countermeasures will decline sharply. Change is unavoidable. Enterprises face unprecedented security challenges. To survive, they must adopt a fresh approach to information risk management.

This paper analyses the trends and changing priorities of the emerging information security landscape, setting out a new action agenda for managing future information risks across a volatile and increasingly externalised business environment.
