The organization has not been consistent or thorough in their risk management approach, which has resulted in IDS, software, and operating systems not being updated, failed corporate security audits, denial of service attacks, data breaches, lost and stolen laptops, and other security incidents. However, the CEO recognizes the importance of ERM and has tasked you to create a brief overview of ERM and recommendations for establishing an effective ERM program that will be briefed to the senior leadership within the organization. Imagine you determine that the COSO guidance will be a good place to start.
