Now in looking at the types of risk, we have to consider that certain kinds of risks will have to be handled in particular ways. Now defining risk itself, this is a business risk that will take the form of some kind of negative impact. It'll typically react against revenue or contracts and their deliverables. It will act negatively against our ability to comply with regulatory sources. It could be the result of fraud or embezzlement. It could be something that harms our business's ability to maintain its business, stay in business, or it could be simply a technological failure or disruption.
Technology risks themselves are impacts caused by or through technologies, which the business depends upon. These can be security failures. They can be privacy breaches. It can be the consequence of poorly-managed change or project mismanagement or a host of other reasons. But the technology risks are of great importance because, increasingly, businesses rely almost to a fatal extent on the technology of systems and therefore get most of our attention.
