Free Software Engineering Institute Webinar Teaches Operational Resilience Management

Share Article

Organizations can’t plan for every disruption. They need to be able to handle stressors in their risk environment at a moment’s notice and with a predictable level of performance. Resilience management helps organizations establish, improve, and sustain the maturity of their operational resilience management program and their ability to fulfill their business missions despite disruptions such as cybersecurity attacks or breaches, regional infrastructure failures, and natural disasters.

The discussion will describe how an organization can use the model to transform its operational resilience management program.

Organizations can’t plan for every disruption. They need to be able to handle stressors in their risk environment at a moment’s notice and with a predictable level of performance. Resilience management helps organizations establish, improve, and sustain the maturity of their operational resilience management program and their ability to fulfill their business missions despite disruptions such as cybersecurity attacks or breaches, regional infrastructure failures, and natural disasters.

In a free, 90-minute webinar on Monday, July 12, 2010, at 1:30 p.m. EDT, Rich Caralli, technical manager of the Resilient Enterprise Management team in the CERT® Program at the Software Engineering Institute (SEI) of Carnegie Mellon University, will discuss the CERT Resilience Management Model (CERT®-RMM). This capability model, which is related to SEI’s Capability Maturity Model Integration® (CMMI®) framework, provides a foundation for a process-improvement approach to operational resilience management. The CERT-RMM can extend an organization’s ability to develop, deploy, operate, and maintain resilient assets and services throughout their lifecycle.

“The discussion will describe how an organization can use the model to transform its operational resilience management program by understanding the model’s capability level, setting forward-looking resiliency goals and targets, and developing plans to close identified gaps,” explained Caralli, architect of the model. The webinar will provide the most up-to-date information on the model and related elements, such as appraisals, training, and certification, as well as insight into how the model is being used. In addition, Caralli’s presentation will address how the use of the CERT-RMM can help organizations prepare for FEMA’s proposed Private Sector Preparedness Accreditation and Certification Program (PS-Prep) while also providing a meaningful and transformative path to improving the predictability of their resilience under times of stress. Finally, it will provide a preview of a new area of CERT work in resilience measurement and analysis.
