For virtually every business operation today, Information Technology (IT) is an essential and indispensible component. Although this reliance on IT provides obvious benefits, it also presents significant business challenges. The complexities of IT and its interconnectedness to so many areas of the business leave organizations more vulnerable than ever to inherent risks. Events that impact IT, which previously could be contained within the IT department, can now affect the entire business. Data loss, corruption and inaccessibility - as well as security breaches and infrastructure failures - quickly become public events that can severely impact an organization's productivity, its reputation and its ability to achieve strategic goals.
