Building a Cyber Savvy Board

Cyber security continues to hit the headlines across the globe, affecting a range of organizations. The number of breaches reported and their significance keeps growing. From Equifax to Deloitte, no organization seems to be immune. It seems that the reality we need to face is that you either have been breached or you are waiting for a breach.

C-suite executives seem to bear the brunt of the responsibility for major breaches, and in some cases, this costs them their jobs. However, there is an increasing amount of attention being placed on the role of the board. What should it be and how can you ensure that boards of directors are able to effectively carry out their responsibilities with regards to cyber security?

Future Challenges for Emergency Management

The US Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) has stated that “The World is changing in ways that can have major effects on the emergency management community.” Our environment is evolving at a rapid pace and the emergencies that we are encountering are evolving just as quickly in terms of scope and complexity.

If we are to be resilient to the evolving emergency management challenges of the future, we need to build an understanding of what might be changing, as well as the skills and resources we will need to effectively cope with these challenges.

Harnessing the Power of Volunteers in Emergencies

There are generally two types of volunteers: affiliated and unaffiliated. Engaged citizens and spontaneous volunteers. Both have traditionally been neglected but both can be tremendously helpful, especially during disaster situations.

Every community's volunteers and volunteer organizations, including Volunteer Corps and Citizen Emergency Response Teams, have essential local knowledge, not to mention proximity. And when a community is affected, social media tends to draw external (and virtual) spontaneous volunteers, dispersed and disparately-skilled people who want to contribute. In both cases, the key is to provide them tools to self-organize around actually-useful, non make-work tasks; tasks that take advantage of the skills and assets on-hand.
