"This Gartner report charts your course to the future of information security with Gartner’s “continuous adaptive risk and trust assessment” (CARTA) as your guide.
This reports highlights a need for security and risk management leaders to embrace a strategic approach where security is adaptive, everywhere, all the time. Gartner calls this strategic approach ""continuous adaptive risk and trust assessment,"" or CARTA.
By reading “Seven Imperatives to Adopt a CARTA Strategic Approach,” you will gain insight into CARTA and better understand the people, process and technical changes it calls for, including:
