As every business becomes a digital business, technology advances like the Internet of Things and augmented reality have the potential to add significant business value-and to make everyday life more convenient and enriching. However, with the benefits come risks.
ISACA's 2016 IT Risk/Reward Barometer looks at the risks and rewards of AR, and how organizations and individuals are beginning to use it. While consumers are excited to adopt AR, many organizations report concerns regarding cost, ROI, privacy and security. A strong governance foundation will give them the confidence they need to pursue emerging technologies like this one.
"Enterprises need to work on being agile and applying sound measures around governance, security and risk management to fully realize the benefits of technology advances like augmented reality."– Christos Dimitriadis, Ph.D. CISA, CISM, CRISC, Chair of ISACA's Board of Directors and Group Director of Information Security for INTRALOT
"With the proliferation of IoT-enabled devices and the drive to provide enhanced user experiences, IoT and AR have the power to become a source of unprecedented value and opportunity. Individuals and enterprises should focus on rapidly getting up to speed on these technologies while learning how to manage risk so they do not compromise their company's ability to innovate."– Rob Clyde, CISM, Board Director of ISACA and Managing Director of Clyde Consulting LLC
