Organisations often don’t invest in risk governance because it’s considered a ‘high level’ service, only for corporate giants. If that describes you, we strongly suggest you reconsider.
Every public sector organisation has compliance obligations. In the commercial world your accreditations could be a competitive difference. Regardless of sector, size or scale, every organisation has a duty of care to its people, its partners and itself, to manage its data securely and effectively and limit risk.
Governance and compliance are generally linked to scale and complexity. Larger and more complex organisations invariably oblige more effort. Conversely, smaller organisations often find compliance easier to achieve but, in all circumstances, an independent, objective assessment of data, security and controls is an essential stepping-stone towards risk mitigation.
