Organizations of all types and sizes face internal and external factors and influences that make it uncertain whether and when they will achieve their objectives. The effect this uncertainty has on an organization's objectives is “risk”.
All activities of an organization involve risk. Organizations ideally manage risk by identifying it, analysing it and then evaluating whether the risk should be modified by risk treatment in order to satisfy their risk criteria. Throughout this process, they communicate and consult with stakeholders and monitor and review the risk and the controls that are modifying the risk in order to ensure that no further risk treatment is required.
Although the approach to risk management has improved, there is still much work for many organisation's to do. To this end Cougar Hanson has developed a set of services and solutions in line with ISO 30001 to help organisations decrease their intrinsic risks and minimise not only the possibilitys of a disaster, but ensuring that counter measures for business recovery and the continous ability to trade are available.
Looking directly at the IT function, data is king and its safekeeping is paramount. Further to this, the ability to access the data in a timely manner is also vital. How long could a business survive without its data? What data would you need to access first? who would need to access it? by when? how would you invoice without your data? The list of questions has just begun!! these are top of the iceburg questions.
