Technology firms live in the “unknown” world. So it is not a surprise when we get responses from the technology industry that believe that the risk assessment process is something that is too focused on the unknown.
One of the most common questions we get from technology firms about risk assessment is how to adjust the process to address the unknown.
True, your risk assessment is a snapshot of your current environment. In order to adjust your risk assessment process to include the unknown, you should include monitoring activities. These monitoring activities should include a complete view of the threats and opportunities that your firm faces.
