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.
