Pursuing Global Trends in Risk assessment
More than looking for threats in a given business situation from a historical perspective, risk mitigation techniques are traversing towards predicting risk with the use of behavioral science and cognitive technology. Along with the social media platforms, smart devices and intelligent software have a big role to play in analyzing trends and helping companies stay ahead. The very same smart technology might also become a cause for some concern and will make organizations look for out of the box solutions to increase cyber security and reduce online frauds.
Even competitive/market intelligence as a discipline is fast gathering momentum with budget allocations to CI departments steadily on the rise.
A Challenging Journey
Risk reporting is akin to investigative journalism wherein one needs to gather facts discretely and report these in an unbiased manner without attracting attention or drawing any conclusions. At B’risk Intelligence, they understand the sensitivities involved and are extra cautious of adhering to a strict code of conduct as well as maintaining high levels of business ethics. This requires a lot of tact, foresightedness and a resolute will to probe until the truth unfolds.
The market dynamics in India are also extremely complex. A lack of structured and transparent public domain information further makes it a challenge to gather information through secondary research.
