Building a Resiliency Program
Wednesday, October 19, 2011 at 2:00 PM
All organizations face risks. Exposure to risks can lead to a drop in productivity, decreased cost effectiveness, reduced quality, damaged reputations, and lost earning potential. Your Risk Management effort should focus on identifying vulnerabilities and prioritizing mitigation efforts based on both perceived consequences and cost-benefit analyses.
Residual risks - what remains after mitigation efforts - are the focus of Business Continuity Management (BCM). The traditional BCM lifecycle (Risk Assessment, BIA, Planning, Testing and Maintenance) often yields a plan centric approach to BCM.
Plan-centric BCM, using scenarios or other narrow-focused formats, may satisfy audit and compliance requirements, but rarely produces actionable plans that are viable during a real disruption.
