I respectfully encourage readers to…
- consider business IA risk resiliency as an investment in business sustainability,and
- recognize exhibiting complacency toward a business’s mission essential IA’s, will likely constitute an unfavorable predictor of sustainability.
Achieving a sustainable state of business IA risk resilience, preceding, following, and for the duration of a significant business disruption, ala risk event, is a mission essential undertaking for the growing percentage of businesses which are, in fact, economically and competitively, IA intensive and dependent. (Thanks to the fine work of Dr. Mark Siegel and the newly adopted American National Standard on Organizational Resilience.)
The good thing is, achieving business IA risk resilience is doable! An important starting point lies with leadership and management teams having ( 1. ) the relevant foresight and will, ( 2. ) to achieve operational familiarity with and distinguish their business’s mission essential IA’s, which ( 3. ) will undoubtably be exposed, vulnerable, and/or targeted when particular risks – business disruptions materialize and cascade throughout an enterprise.
