How often do we hear about an organization that is going through, coming out of, or planning for a change? Constantly. The cycle is almost continuous. One change is barely implemented before a new disruption or opportunity presents itself and demands a response. Organizations capable of engaging a continuous process of identifying, planning for, and adapting to change are those with teams aligned around priorities and structures in place to act on decisions with process and focus.

Cloud computing, artificial intelligence, mixed reality (augmented and virtual reality), blockchain, and even cryptocurrencies are emerging as pillars of any enterprise transformation. This has resulted in hyper-automated processes, accelerated supply chain productivity, and growing customer loyalty. But, as organizations digitally transform to create and enhance their future value for their workforce, customers, and shareholders, they are exposing themselves to more cyber risk.
Organizations must anticipate future threats and take control of the risky environment. To start, organizations must understand the evolution of technology and cyber threats – past, present, and future – as they test new business models and adopt new technology.

A slew of recent events has raised the question about the best ways for organizations to prepare for unexpected but inevitable events. Human nature – and therefore corporate nature, pushes us to rely heavily on the comfort of the absolutes that live in the rearview mirror. Even with the influence of sophisticated predictive analytics, planning for the future too often begins with a backward look and ends with the current state. Events throughout history remind us of the precariousness of such a shortsighted approach.

The world is rapidly changing, and the threats to business and government are changing with it. This is particularly true for the threats to physical and information security systems in our companies and government agencies. To mitigate threats today and tomorrow, we need to change how we think about and address security. That means moving away from “standard” security compliance approaches to adopt an advanced risk-informed type of compliance that requires risk-informed mindsets and risk-informed organizational cultures.

In 2014, global M&A deal volume experienced a massive rebound. The total number of reported M&A transactions reached 31,427 globally, with deal value rising 57% to $2.94 trillion. Particularly as we experience strong macroeconomic conditions, high levels of cash among strategic acquirers and low interest rates, acquisition can look like a favorable way to fill current gaps in the enterprise, access a new customer base, and gain capabilities for accelerated growth.
