De-risking the cloud
CSO Magazine
The attractiveness of adopting cloud services continues to grow. Who can argue against access to the latest technologies, a pay as you go model, rapid provisioning/de-provisioning and on demand scaling?

Short-termism in business can perpetuate instability and risk
The Telegraph
As practices have accelerated over time, business incentives have also shifted to a shorter-term focus as increasing weight is attached to mark-to-market accounting, quarterly returns and short-term incentive bonuses. Uncertainty in global markets has led many companies and business leaders to seek safety in swift returns on investment, with the speed and unpredictability of change making it easier to justify a short-term focus.

Risk management should be proactive
ITWeb
