What Is a Risk Appetite Statement?

Over the past few weeks, we’ve talked quite a bit about risk:

  • What it is.
  • How it applies to compliance.
  • How you can start to think about it as an aspect of your overall business strategy. 

In many of the cases we’ve discussed, we’ve referred to risk in terms of mitigation–how to close the gap between your security capabilities and potential threats in the wild.

While this move is a good one, we also find that many organizations will over-rely on frameworks as an end-all, be-all approach to security, which can prove more confusing than helpful.
