  • Cyber Security

    Organizations must be prepared to combat against, manage and mitigate cyber attacks that can occur anytime, anywhere.

    Our 16th annual global information security survey explores the actions organizations have taken to address current threats, how leading organizations are preparing for cyber risks that may be on the horizon, and how new technologies and an innovative approach can help organizations proactively prepare for the future.

    We found three levels of response to cyber risk in an environment where cyber attacks are numerous, constant and increasingly complex:

    • Improve — What organizations are doing to address the current threats and the challenges that still exist
    • Expand — Steps leading organizations are taking to address new threats more proactively
    • Innovate — Solutions organizations need to address new and upcoming technologies

  • Managing risk — for opportunities

    We know you’re concerned about the risks of regulation and compliance – especially if you’re in banking or health care.

    Meanwhile, as market volatility and pricing pressures unsettle the landscape, those forces are stimulating competition and creating opportunities.

    To strike that balance between risk and opportunity, our research suggests that many leading firms are developing an overarching strategy that balances both.

    Our work with clients reveals that there is a need to re-engineer the risk processes across the business, just as was done with finance, manufacturing, and supply chain processes.

    The goal is to get better coverage on the risks that matter.

  • A clearer vision for finance

    An effective Finance function that is best suited to the organization can be a critical factor for growth.

    Yet 98% of companies feel there are opportunities to improve their Finance function.

    The challenge is in marrying conflicting priorities:

    • Driving the business forward
    • Protecting the organization’s financial assets

    Our research suggests 80% of companies are planning to better align Finance with overall business strategies.

    To do that, we see three key priorities for finance which involve striking a balance between control, effectiveness and efficiency.

    1. Control: promote strong governance and control in the organization.
    2. Effectiveness: drive the business forward, challenge the business and strengthen decision-making throughout the organization.
    3. Efficiency: drive costs down, integrate acquired teams.

  • Getting information technology right

    Information technology functions need to strike a balance between risk and performance.

    But reality often falls short of this goal.

    That’s because IT’s influence on the business has evolved so quickly that many IT functions are still struggling with how to marry their technical expertise with a new business perspective.

    Top IT leaders are now facing broad challenges, including:

    • Increasingly complex IT and business operating models
    • Cost efficiency and transparency demands
    • New regulations and new forms of threat
    • Corporate responsibility expectations

    Our research suggests that successful firms are focusing on these key issues and formulating their response at the enterprise level.

  • Shaping effective supply chains

    Responding to a business environment that’s more complex and fluid than ever, many companies are adapting their supply chains in two key ways:

    • They’re rapidly expanding to capitalize on the growing number of middle-class buyers in emerging markets.
    • They’re driving cost efficiencies to boost margins in their mature market operations.

    Our research suggests that either way, seven interconnected items come into play.


    EY - Shaping effective supply chains

    In growth markets, considerations include:

    • Managing operational, tax and regulatory risk
    • Enabling new revenue sources
    • Establishing an effective supply chain model and infrastructure

    In mature markets, considerations include:

    • Reconfiguring the supply chain to create cost competitiveness
    • Optimizing global spend
    • Improving operational agility and responsiveness

    In mature and emerging markets, environmental and sustainability matters emerge.
