Risk in the New Year: Hear from the Experts at the 2022 Predictions Panel

By Shannon Gallo

The new year is just around the corner – are you ready to face the unknown? These last few years have taught us the value of thorough preparation. So let’s get ready to go into 2022 with eyes open and a plan. Experts see these key focus areas on the horizon:

  • Developing organizational resilience
  • Leveraging the digital transformation
  • Merging cyber and physical security

Are these issues on your radar? In today’s complex threat landscape, successful risk management can make or break an organization. It all comes down to risk mitigation and organizational resilience; both depend on actionable intelligence. While most organizations will acknowledge this truth, many aren’t taking the right steps to proactively prepare.

The majority of risk and security professionals underestimate the rising complexity of risk management, according to a commissioned study by Forrester Consulting on behalf of OnSolve. That’s surprising, given that 99 percent of survey respondents experienced at least one incident over the past 18 months and nearly three-quarters experienced at least two types of incidents.

In addition, while optimistically expecting a 122 percent increase in optimized risk strategies in the next 18 months, nearly half of organizations are simultaneously discounting the value of proactive risk mitigation. This marked disconnect between comprehension and expectations demonstrates the need for better applied understanding. Only 38 percent of respondents indicated their current risk management strategies are effectively measured or optimized.

So how do you rectify this issue?
