Major new British Standard for Cyber Risk and Resilience [Consultation]

BSI Cyber Risk and Resilience Standards BS 31111A major new British Standard [BS 31111] is in development to help senior executives and risk managers improve their cyber risk management and build the cyber resilience of their organizations.

Over the past year, the BSI Risk Management Committee has been working on developing new guidance that aims to help top executives better understand and manage the technology risks to their organizations.  

What about Resilience?

Risk, Business Continuity and Resilience - are we getting the landscape right?
 
Business Continuity, Resilience and the Rhinos ear
 
Imagine trying to describe or just outline what a Rhinoceros looks like to someone when you have only have seen a small part of the whole animal yourself, perhaps just a foot or an ear.
 
Three toed camel or a resilient  Rhino? When you haven't seen the whole thing it makes it awkward at best, perhaps even impossible. Its certainly rather tricky eh?  You could end up with a Donkey, a three toed Camel or indeed a host of bizarre critters. To describe a Rhino properly you have got to step back and get the whole picture. (We know this is usually done with elephants, but we prefer a rhino for this analogy...  its an ear thing!)  
 
We’re using this example to illustrate one of the most interesting topics emerging across the Risk and Business Continuity Sectors  - Organizational Resilience! 
A lot of people are talking about it and the discussion underway is really interesting.

London Cyber Conference ends, but what next?

 
Business Continuity Forum opinion
London Cyber Conference
2011 
 
 
Over two days the London Cyber Conference 2011 delivered a truly international focal point to examine how our digital world is developing and share what needs to be done to keep the benefits, but remove some of the risks.  
 
With over 700 people from 60 countries there really was a global presence and the issues discussed in the plenary and private sessions clearly communicated the breadth of the challenges being faced in cyberspace.
