For this months @ISACA Tips column, I wrote about the conundrum of defining and assessing emerging risk. Its an interesting space to assess; technologies and trends so cutting edge that they sorta defy precision assessments, yet also so important as to require them.

I’m pleased to announce that a new book has been published that includes a chapter that I wrote on Cybersecurity and Technology Risk. I was approached by the good folks at Risk Books on contributing some original Cyber content in their new publication on Operational Risk. I choose to address the general risks in the domain and paid special attention on how to define risks (risk syntax) to avoid the problems of defining control deficiencies as risk.
The other chapters in the book are really great too! There are discussions of blockchain, Big Data, Privacy, OpRisk modeling and quantification, and emerging risk.
You can pick up your copy of Operational Risk Perspectives: Cyber, Big Data, and Emerging Risks at the Risk Books website (including eBook).
