Whenever there is a great disaster in the world, the desire for security suddenly returns to front and center stage. So it comes as no surprise that the financial crisis has given an extra dimension to the significance of risk management – not only for banks. Identifying and assessing risks beforehand and acting according to a plan in an emergency can increase a company’s survival capability enormously in the event of a crisis. But there are dangers lurking in the digital world as well: the harm to a company’s image when careless statements appear in social media, virus infections, data protection, and cyber-criminality, especially related to the use of smartphones and tablets, to mention just a few. The authors in our newest edition of DMR entitled “Security” have examined these issues from various angles and can offer some food for thought as well as concrete solutions.
