Ray says…
“Organisations are under threat as much from their own people and processes as they are from external fraudsters, hackers and thieves. 
Even simple mistakes can have very damaging business consequences – wiping out valuable data, for example. 
If your processes aren’t right, you could be failing to meet legal or regulatory requirements in ways that could prove very expensive indeed. 
To manage risk effectively, you have to look at your business top to bottom, and from every angle. You need to put the right measures in place and not just pay them lip service. 
Start by setting a strategy that’s aligned to your business’s goals and objectives. From this, you can hang a framework for building sustainable, repeatable projects that flex and grow with your business. 
It’s the only way to manage whatever’s thrown at you, no matter when it’s thrown!”

Ray speaks on…

The threats and challenges faced by organisations worldwide
