Within the IT world the applications we build are subject to various threats and risks. Information technology or IT risk is basically any threat to the business data, critical systems and business processes. It is the risk associated with the use, ownership, operation, involvement, influence and adoption of IT within an organization. IT risks have the potential to damage business value and often come from poor management of processes and events. In order to deal with these risks and ensure our product is safe we have a number of procedures and controls in place.
Touchpoint Platform’s components are developed by engineers organized in DevOps squads. For each of these components the corresponding risk controls have to be implemented and maintained.
