Why risk management is bigger than security
ChannelBuzz
Numbers vary, but the totality of the security technology marketplace is expected to grow by as much as 6 percent in 2013, as businesses acquire or update their hardware, software and services to thwart ever-mounting threats to their digital assets. Security is big business, and solution providers can make a killing off the sale of security products and managed services. However, the real money is in risk management, or the development and support of synergistic security systems and support services that continuously monitor and react to evolving threats and changes in the operational landscape.

Supply chain and risk management: Identifying global hot spots and social models
Spend Matters
Identifying the next global hot spots and harnessing social approaches to understanding the shifting political and world landscape can provide a distinct advantage to risk management. The highest-level example here is moving beyond just economic forecasts (or having a chief economist in a company, however valuable that can be in and of itself) to develop a perspective, informed by traditional sources of intelligence, as well as on the ground assets, including suppliers.

US regulators urge firms to improve business continuity, disaster recovery plans
Reuters
Futures and securities firms should review their industry-wide and internal business continuity and disaster recovery plans to improve responsiveness to significant disruptions and reduce recovery time, their regulators recently said in a staff advisory. U.S. regulators have been particularly concerned over how financial firms plan for disasters since the attacks of September 11, 2001, and through the President's Working Group on Financial Markets during the administration of George W. Bush urged the industry to strengthen its defenses. The concerns have included flooding following Hurricane Katrina and the threat of an influenza pandemic, and are growing.

CNBC

Let's talk about sexual harassment in the workplace
Forbes
The year is 2013 and you would think by now, harassment of any kind in the workplace would be extinct. But, maybe as a civilization, we have not come as far as we may think we have. As a manager or business owner, the moment you sense something is amiss in your organization you owe it to your people to take action. Waiting and hoping that the air will clear will only flame the fires.
