Gartner’s Hype Cycle Focuses on Integrated Risk Management

Gartner’s Hype Cycle

Gartner just released its 2017 Hype Cycle for Risk Management focusing on the importance of integrated risk management (IRM).

The 2017 Hype Cycle for Risk Management report describes the related services, software platforms, applications, methods and tools that organizations can use to develop programs to withstand risk events or to take advantage of risk-related opportunities. In short, risk management programs mitigate the impact of uncertainty on business performance. Gartner recommends an integrated risk management (IRM) approach to build and sustain successful risk management.

What is IRM?

Many organizations are good at domain-specific risk management, but they struggle to harmonize the three key pillars of a successful security and risk management program: a strong framework, metrics and systems. IRM can remedy this challenge.

IRM is a set of practices and processes supported by a risk-aware culture and enabling technologies that improve decision making and performance through an integrated view of how well an organization manages its unique set of risks.

IRM encompasses a holistic analysis of internal and external risk factors. Successful organizations design a framework that seamlessly connects risks at a strategic, operational and IT level. To understand the full scope of risk, organizations require a comprehensive view across all business units and risk and compliance functions, as well as key business partners, suppliers and outsourced entities.

Risk management continues to be an area of growing maturity and investment for most organizations as the risk landscape becomes ever more complex and interconnected. In fact, according to a 2017 survey of executives by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants, 70% of respondents perceive that the volume and complexities of risks have increased “mostly” or “extensively” in the past five years.

Moreover, 79% of executives stated that their organization experienced risks that have actually translated into significant operational surprises and business disruptions in past five years. To understand the full scope of risk, organizations require a comprehensive view across all business units and risk and compliance functions, as well as key business partners, suppliers and outsourced entities. As a result, new technology solutions are emerging to increase the collaborative nature of risk management to support data-driven decision making, both within and external to an organization.

What is the Future of Risk Management? 

Gartner predicts, by 2021, 50% of large enterprises will use an IRM solution set to provide better decision-making capabilities, and that the IRM solutions market will grow to $7.3 billion by 2020. Digitized organizations are prioritizing the need for risk management programs that alleviate IT and cyber security threats.

The Hype Cycle for Risk Management demonstrates organizations’ increasing need to understand the full scope of their digital business risks. Areas such as digital risk management (DRM), social media risk management, cloud security intelligence, business continuity management (BCM), IT risk management (ITRM), Internet of Things (IoT) and vendor risk management (VRM) are critical components of the evolving digital business landscape. The technologies covered in this Hype Cycle report provide the risk insights that are required to create strategies to build successful digital business processes…
