In particular, within the financial services sector, risk management has grown in prominence largely as a result of regulatory push but also as a means of protecting current assets while actively seeking competitive advantage.
The East Africa Enterprise Risk Management Survey is the first survey of its kind as it seeks to provide a baseline assessment of the state of risk management within the financial services sector in the region.

As business processes grow more dependent upon technology, the need for information security is becoming central to organizations’ business strategies. The role of the information security function is evolving to become more open, business-oriented, and focused around information risk management. Consequently, this transformation has moved information security from a technology-oriented function to a business-focused initiative.
