Managing Risk in the Digital Age

Managing Risk in the Digital Age

“Why not go out on a limb? That’s where the fruit is.”

I think humorist Will Rogers hit the nail on the head with that quote. Basically, he’s saying to be successful in life, you need to take some risk. The same applies to business. And that’s something I have to keep in mind every day.

As the new chief risk officer at LifeLock, it’s my job to look across the company at the various risks that face our business.
