Overlapping, confusing and always changing regulations create risk
As regulations grow more important, CISOs run the risk of falling into a “check-box mentality” in order to keep up with compliance. Regulations that have a high-cost impact include federal laws regulating data protection and privacy, global data protection laws, state laws regulating data protection and privacy and compliance mandates for critical infrastructure / ICS.
A few examples of both regional and cross-industry regulations include:

The new cyber risks introduced by IoT devices
Nearly half (48%) of U.S. organizations using some sort of IoT network have experienced a recent security breach. IoT devices can become unknown and unwanted guests on your network. They typically include lightweight operating systems that don’t support the software agents that traditional security tools require to discover and manage them. Enterprise IT staff consistently struggle to identify these devices. Reducing cyber risk starts with understanding and identifying the assets associated with critical business processes.
Third Party & Supply Chain Risk
Breaches of subcontractor systems can have a negative impact on national security
Recent breaches have resulted in the U.S. federal government implementing stricter scrutiny of supplier relationships and enforcing requirements for contractors to comply with security frameworks such as NIST 800-171. Using the NIST 800-171 framework to secure information systems reduces cyber risk, as well as risk of losing federal contracts.
Risk of Business Disruption
IT and OT convergence – a tangled web?
IT and OT systems must interact and rely on each other to function at maximum efficiency. It’s the new reality for most companies. A recent IT-initiated attack on a Norwegian firm’s OT operations resulted in a heavy financial burden. To mitigate potential financial losses, organizations need to adopt a fresh perspective on their cybersecurity strategy, which should include an enterprise-wide security posture incorporating both IT and OT.
Mergers & Acquisitions
Integrating and orchestrating different tools, policies and networks
Mergers and acquisitions reached a record level of $2.5 trillion in 2018. When you acquire a company, you not only acquire its assets, but the associated risks. The Forescout platform lets you quickly discover, auto-classify and assess traditional systems, BYOD, IoT, OT and other types of endpoints. It real-time inventory of what’s on your network—as well as the networks of acquired companies—without requiring agents.
ACCURATELY ASSESS AND MINIMIZE BUSINESS RISK WITH FORESCOUT:
Is your ERM program robust enough to quantify and mitigate losses from cyber risk?
Deloitte’s recent Risk Management Survey indicated that, in response to constant change, more than 63% of corporations are assigning primary risk management responsibility to the board of directors in the form of board risk committees.
While risk is top of mind for most executives, Aon’s Global Risk Management survey indicates that only 59 % apply any formal process to identify and evaluate cyber risks. Why is quantifying risk so challenging? Two possible reasons:
