Measuring your business e-adoption and risk
E RADAR’s E Adoption Risk Ladder aims to help you and your business teams put all these issues and challenges facing your online operations into context. The E Adoption Risk Ladder is designed to help you measure your organisation’ level of adoption of e-business and work out what compliance strategy you need to take.
Doing business electronically is complicated business made more difficult by the plethora of rules and regulations which apply to processes, technology, people – and information.
And not just in one country. Suppliers of goods and services are finding themselves subject to different laws and regulations in whichever country they do business online. Increased globalisation means that companies often have subsidiaries in many different parts of the world where local rules apply.
Yet the law is not just the domain of lawyers but also of entrepreneurs, business leaders, top managers, compliance and risk professionals as well as project teams who are all accountable for the actions of the organisation. The more IT-enabled your organisation becomes and the more you’re on line, the greater the risks.
The digital world is one of evolution where organisations take a succession of steps to get information and business systems online before doing any business over the Internet. As information and communications technology develops so too does the level of sophistication in what organisations enabled electronically are trying to achieve online.
Social media and mobile enterprise are fast becoming the ‘new ways of doing things’. But as organisations become more ‘e-enabled’ so their online risks also increase. For today’s businesses to compete in open global markets and collaborate with partners large and small they need to show that they’ve adopted certain levels of compliance.
E RADAR’s E Adoption Risk Ladder will help you to achieve this goal.
