One of my favorite aspects of my role as a Security Evangelist for Radware is that I get the chance to really talk with business leaders about the challenges they face every day when protecting their business. I do a lot of listening, honestly, and I get the chance to learn a lot from these conversations.
Over the past few weeks, Risk and Risk Management have been common topics of discussion. They can be challenging because every business is different and we all face different risks or threats. Some of us have regulatory or compliance controls that we must operate within, which define how we handle certain risks. Others have customers who require that we maintain certain protocols and certifications as a method of protecting their data. Still, others have no programs in place at all.
