Business Continuity: Correction Versus Preventive Third Party Risk Management – Path to Resiliency


Program Title

Business Continuity: Correction versus Prevention – Path to Resiliency

Program Overview

During the pandemic, a few things came to light.

While cyber security teams struggled to deal with the exponential increase in attacks, the organization’s exposure to third-party risk increased and managing cyber security awareness across a distributed remote workforce became harder than ever.

In addition, the organization’s perimeter was blurred by home Wi-Fi thru work from home policies, which was made worse by BYOD policies that were enacted without much consideration for cyber security.

COVID-19 also revealed that traditional Business Continuity Plans (BCPs) had to be redesigned to address an ongoing crisis creating the most opportune time for C–level executives and security leaders to rethink cyber security as a core component of their BCP.

Many existing BCPs often exclude cyber security policies and strategies. However, a security breach can result in a business crisis.

Effectively capturing data about experience and response to the breach can help design testing scenarios and recovery environments. In the case of a cyber security breach, this could potentially assist in finding the most effective responses and crisis management strategies.

Today, every business is a digital enterprise, which means that BCPs must address digital threats as well as physical threats. By doing so, real business resilience can be built.
