What is Business Resilience
• Business resilience is the ability to prepare for, respond to, and
recover from just about disaster it may face.
• It helps an organization protect against the countless threats that can
cripple it’s operations, and limit the severity of any incident, and
ensure its continued survival despite an event.
• Cyber resilience has emerged over the past few years because
traditional cybersecurity measures are no longer enough.
• It is now commonly accepted that it’s no longer a matter of ‘if’ but
‘when’ an organization will suffer data loss or a cyber attack.
• This means that instead of focusing your efforts on keeping criminals
out of your network, it’s better to assume they will eventually break
through your defenses, and start working on a strategy to reduce the
Who is responsible for managing our threat exposure?
• While there is no way for a company to truly predict
every disaster it will face - having risk management
policies in place can help soften the blow of business
disruptions and sometimes prevent the problems
• Risks are something businesses are exposed to daily.
Whether it is an internal failure or an external event,
there is a seemingly endless list of things that can
threaten business productivity at any given moment.
Some of these risks are even serious enough to
jeopardize an organization’s survival.
IMPROVING YOUR RISK MANAGEMENT
The benefits of good risk management combined
with the potential risk of neglecting these
practices makes an enticing case for improving
your approach immediately.
So, what should be your first steps?
Assess and plan: The first step to good risk management is assessing your
current state. Where are you most susceptible to risk and how much work
needs to be done to prevent it? Deciding what state you are in currently
can help you better formulate the correct plan for your business. From
there, you should start laying out a concrete strategy.
Communicate your plan: A plan is rendered useless when it's not
efficiently communicated to the necessary parties. Business leaders
should make sure these new processes and risk policies are readily
available to employees new and old. Upon the completion of your risk
management plan, hold a company wide meeting and open the field for
questions and clarifications.
Improve internal processes: Improving internal management functions is
one of the best ways to tackle potential business risks immediately. From
improving your cyber protection to better tracking your data and assets,
leveraging the resources of your IT partner can help significantly lower
your chances of falling victim to common industry problems.
