Risks vs Issues
Hey, I would like to better understand Risks and Issues please.My understanding is that the former is a potential future loss event and the latter is a weakness/vulnerability/control gap etc. that usually comes out of audits/assessments.If that’s correct, I have some additional questions:Do you maintain separate registers for them? Is it fair to say that most issue have (or can have) a corresponding risk entry in the risk register? e.g. The lack of/inadequate DLP controls can have an entry in the issue register and also the risk register (as a data leakage risk scenario). If above statement and example is true, why can’t we just capture issues (control gaps/findings) as risks in the risk register (instead of issues in a separate register)? Is it because we don’t want the risk register to become really big with lots of entries? or because of other reasons too? Many thanks in advance.
How to measure the effectiveness of your risk management program
Hey all, on September 7 Drata’s CISO, Ross, will be chatting about how you can better articulate the role risk management plays in your organization. Our goal is to better identify that a security-first approach should not feel like an anchor to progress, but more so help you accelerate it and bring stronger accountability to the table.

Is Compliance the same thing as security?
The short answer is no. Does compliance impact and in many cases lead to security efforts? Of course!Security and compliance aren’t interchangeable. Making sure internal teams outside of security including marketing, sales, engineering, and especially your executive team, understand their distinct differences will be essential in protecting your business.
