Enterprise Security Risk Management (ESRM)

Enterprise security risk management (ESRM) is a strategic approach to security management that aligns an organization’s security practices to its overall strategy using established and accepted risk management principles. To support the enterprise and align with the organization’s strategy, security professionals should understand the organization’s context in terms of its mission and vision, core values, operating environment and stakeholders. The practice of ESRM creates partnerships between security and those who own the assets at risk. It addresses all domains of security risk in a holistic manner and without silos. ESRM places risks in context, enabling asset owners to make informed decisions with guidance from security professionals by utilizing a cycle for risk management.

Essentially, ESRM is concerned with identifying and understanding a business’ risk concerns and ensuring that the effort to mitigate those risks is with a clear understanding, and in alignment with, the broader business objectives and business leaders.

The ESRM cycle includes the following four processes;

  1. Identifying and prioritizing assets
  2. Identifying and prioritizing risks
  3. Mitigating the prioritized risks
  4. Continuous improvement of the security program
