The evolution and growth of the “cyber” or the “wired world” we live in, along with all its physical, virtual, and human elements present both tremendous opportunity as well as formidable threats. The consequences of not understanding, not seeing, or acting on the resultant complexities of this “risk environment” can be unforgiving, even devastating. The threats are real, persistent, and pervasive; accordingly, understanding the strategic and comprehensive paradigm of risk is an essential prerequisite to effectively protecting, investing, and even growing an organization. The dynamic of today’s operational environment, accelerated by global virtualization, make the stakes of not getting the risk picture correct, higher and higher. New liabilities and the potential for cascading events beyond our ability to control must be anticipated rather than reacted to. Risk mitigation and resiliency planning becomes central to a successful strategy. In contrast, the neglect or relegation of risk modeling to a legacy checklist approach may leave an organization unprepared and fatefully vulnerable to catastrophic consequence. Informed decision-making become crucial to building resiliency against critical areas of risk. This presentation highlights the basic risk paradigm, the complexities added to and by the cyber environment, and some of the critical decision elements and order of approaching it.
