About Governance of Risk

Governance of risk requires directors to protect the interests of an organisation, its clients, employees, and the communities in which it operates. At the same time, directors need to identify and leverage the key opportunities that present themselves.

How is risk management an enabler of an organisation’s performance and growth and in the Digital Age? How does an organisation secure its technology and information, especially in the face of cyber threats?

Governance of Risk Overview

Technology governance and cyber security governance determines how an organisation prevents, monitors, detects, and responds to various cyber threats, including data breaches, intrusions, cyberwarfare, and Advanced Persistent Threats (APTs).

The role of cyber security governance is to establish policies and procedures for Boards to provide the necessary oversight and management to interpret and implement into their daily operations.

By doing so, both the board and management can maintain consistent leadership perspectives, resulting in a more focused, direct, and proactive approach to technology governance – while complying with relevant industry and government regulations.

At Peakstone Global, our focus is establishing technology governance awareness and strategies that align with your organisation’s purpose and strategic goals.. We create tailored plans that protect the interests of your customers, employees and other key stakeholders. In doing so, you can be confident that your organisation is safe from the threat of current and future cyber security risks – in the most safe, secure, cost-efficient, and reliable manner. With cyber security the question is not if you will be threatened but rather when and how your board and organisation respond.
