The goal of Measured programs is to develop a resiliency program that is efficiently sized to mitigate risk while monitoring critical data elements to manage risk as the business demands. Measured programs are developed and maintained by utilizing three steps.  The first step takes into account an organization’s current state of readiness and resources available to them. The second step reviews industry best practices and determines application to your organization.  The third approach requires the implementation of program monitoring and dashboarding to provide data intelligence for senior leadership to identify a change in the risk profile and its potential impact to the organization.  This data will drive actionable items to treat, transfer, terminate, or tolerate the risks at hand.
