Business Continuity and IT Availability – Part I

Robert Davis Robert Davis Profile: Robert Davis

Organizational units exist for various reasons. Governance focusing on business perpetuity and reliability should address strategic to operational transformations enabling adequate continuity management. Threading from the first-tier ‘Governance Tree’ level, linked leaves are inextricably affected by external forces. Consequently, an organizational formation’s continuity depends on relevant, accurate and timely external environment information assessments to drive appropriate governance. Management, especially information security management, cannot establish an adequate safeguarding posture unless root expectations are understood and potential threats, weaknesses as well as opportunities are appropriately addressed. Towards this end, entity oversight committee members — particularly non-executive directors — should ensure they are satisfied that effective, efficient, as well as compliant processes are deployed for business continuity and IT availability.
