Business resilience refers to the ability of enterprises to
adapt to a continuously changing business environment.
Business resilience helps organizations maintain
continuous operations and protect their market share
in the face of disruptions such as natural or man-made
disasters. It requires the engagement
of everyone in the organization and often means
a change in corporate culture to instill awareness
of risk.
Business resilience planning is distinguished from
enterprise risk management (ERM) in that it is more likely
to build capacity to seize opportunities created by
unexpected events.

As budgets shrink and service level requirements increase, our
business becomes even more vulnerable to data loss.

interdependencies

standards

The continuous flow of information is inseparable from the
operational performance of the business.
The Facts
 Information technology is often at the epicenter of how a firm interacts with its clients
 Information technology is always a lever to produce highly efficient supply chains, operations
and workflows
 In combination, these two dynamics generate an explosive growth of managed data
The Implications
 Business resilience and information risk management are commonly on the agenda of the
board of directors
 Firms must assess: Are we compliant? Are we reliable? Can we be trusted?
 Firms must decide how resilient they wish to be – contextualized in the availability, security
and recoverability of their business operations
 Firms must evaluate the extent to which competitive advantage or disadvantage is influenced
by their chosen resilience standing


An integrated approach to business resilience and risk
management offers a significant business opportunity for
organizations of all sizes

Appointing a single individual with overall business resilience and
risk management responsibility is essential to integration success

Input should be sought from throughout the enterprise —
including employees and partners

Focus should be on the business impact and business
opportunity. Recovery is a subset of the resiliency plan

Cloud technologies have matured significantly and now have the
potential to deliver significant business resilience benefits

The newly integrated business resilience and risk management
strategy can be levered to seize unexpected opportunities and
deliver measurable business value

Lessons Learned from Regional Events
 Events create other events … domino effect
– Japan: earthquake => tsunami => nuclear plant damage => power problems =>
supply chain problems ……
– Hurricanes => Flooding => Mud/Landslides => Power Outages ……
 Human issues
– Will people be available? How about their families? Financial assistance?
 Communications issues
– Communicating with, supporting and mobilizing employees, customers and
suppliers, the press and the public at large
 Community issues
– Fulfilling responsibilities to host communities
 Infrastructure issues
– Anticipating how roads, travel and power supplies might be affected
– Vulnerability of sites
 Business issues
– Keeping business processes running
– Managing insurance claims
 Disaster plan currency
– Keeping plans up to date and well tested
– Availability of data and hardware
