Creating the Risk Assessment Team
Learning Objectives and Outcomes
1. You will learn how to create a risk assessment team.
Imagine that you are a new manager responsible for the IT team in a start-up company that provides hosting services for online storefronts. Shortly before you were hired, the IT systems were compromised, resulting in the services going offline for almost 24 hours before services were restored. As a result, the business suffered financial losses that it could ill afford as a start-up company.
The CEO of the company has directed you to put together a plan to mitigate future risks. The first step is to assemble a team of subject matter experts to help you create the plan. The CEO wants to review a list of the recommended team members before you proceed with the plan. You need to create a list of recommended team members in a form for submission to the CEO. In creating the recommendation, evaluate each role selected, documenting the value that the team member will bring to the process. Also, document any potential issues where team members might have conflicting priorities and you would resolve any conflicts.
