“By 2023, 80% of organizations with formal risk management programs will use an IT risk management (ITRM) product to manage their cyber and IT risks, which is a significant increase from fewer than 45% today.”

According to Gartner, “By 2023, 80% of organizations with formal risk management programs will use an IT risk management (ITRM) product to manage their cyber and IT risks, which is a significant increase from fewer than 45% today.”1

IT departments have been tasked with planning for and mitigating risks that have become increasingly urgent due to the shifts spurred by COVID-19 – including cybersecurity threats, productivity and health safety concerns, and new regulations. Through its unified platform, continuous monitoring and automation, ServiceNow embeds important risk management and compliance activities into employees’ daily workflows. With this deep connection, organizations gain a real-time view of risk and compliance, improve risk-based decision making, and increase business performance.

“Organizations are facing more cross-departmental risk resulting from everyday disruptions and new ways of working, which makes it more vital than ever to take an enterprise-wide approach to risk management. Teams need to work together – connecting IT and business data with risks, compliance policies, processes, and decisions,” said Vasant Balasubramanian, VP and GM of Risk at ServiceNow. “Just last month, Gartner also named ServiceNow a Leader in the August 2021 Magic Quadrant for IT Vendor Risk Management Tools. Together, we believe that this recognition, validates our leadership in helping businesses successfully navigate a challenging landscape, build resilience, and manage risk.”
