White Paper: Why EUC Risk Matters

Why EUC Risk Matters

The Business Case and Best Practices for End User Computing (EUC) Risk Management 

Managing the enormous risks from End User Computing (EUC) applications is probably not on the top of the agenda for your C-suite. Nonetheless, you can be assured that they would care deeply if a material error related to EUCs were to occur or become public. It has cost a CEO their job.

Every company, regardless of size, has EUC risk. It usually takes the form of errors or confidential data loss. However, most executives aren’t fully aware that the impact could be material. Your organization faces hundreds of risks; why does EUC risk deserve special attention?

This white paper will lead you through the process of facilitating an internal discussion about “Why managing EUC risk matters?”

It is organized around five themes including:

1. EUC Risk – what is the potential impact, is it material?

2. Your Current EUC Risk – what is your current exposure and what are the challenges in addressing those risks?

3. Best Practices - what are the best practices and benefits of automated error diagnostics & self-governing EUC controls?

4. Value Proposition – how does the proposed solution align with your organization's strategic objectives? What value does it deliver and what is the return on investment?

5. Stakeholder Alignment – political realities require building consensus and a network of support for a solution. How do you do that?

Given the vast number of EUCs and the dispersed nature of end users, reducing EUC risk appears to be a big task. The good news is that with a combination of a small amount of work process improvement, and the use of software, this challenge can be overcome. There is a simple place to start that will result in a balanced, win-win-win approach for the 1st, 2nd and 3rd lines of defense.
