Operationalize Standards

 “The holistic concept of resilience encompasses more than traditional security measures.  It speaks to the optimization of people, process, and technology to yield systems that are not only secure but will inherently survive, and recover from a wide array of threats and caustic environments. The Global Forum to Advance Cyber Resilience is the first of its kind targeting operationalizing standards and practices focused on the critical issue of cyber resilience.”

Gene Fredriksen, VP/CISO of the Public Service Credit Union (PSCU), the leading provider of traditional and online financial services to 800+ credit unions, 18+ million cardholders and bill payment solutions for over a million online bill payment subscribers.

Private and Public Sector

The forum is a non-stock not for profit corporation.

Vision: Leading the advancement of cyber resilient service management through collaborative innovation, securing and strengthening critical infrastructure across every government and industry sector worldwide.

Forum Mission: To enhance and maintain Critical Infrastructure Resilience against all Cyber Risks. We are not a standards organization. We help participants take advantage of existing standards.

Scope: Private and Public-sector critical infrastructure organizations, including small and midsize businesses, standards and best practice organizations, and organizations supporting workforce development.

Advancing Cyber Resilience

The Forum’s collaborative activities enable private and public organizations to share and validate lessons learned, set strategy to improve the delivery of cyber secure and resilient services, thereby enhancing the ability to deliver their mission. Deliverables include the continual improvement of the Foundation for Public Private Collaboration containing lessons learned, best practices, standards and frameworks that organizations find helpful to operationalize cyber resilient service management.

The Forum is Unique

We engage private/public sector C-suite and other decision makers to advance cyber resilience in experiential applications of best practices in service strategy, service design, service transition and service operation continual improvement, and organizational change management. We provide a trusted way for participants to engage in connecting the dots, expanding their network, and growing their experience to further enable their services. Because we focus on the mission of the organization and how cyber resilient service management enables the mission, participants see this as something adding value vs as an expense of cyber security. We seek to influence improvements of standards, best practices, directives, and frameworks utilizing lessons learned from private and public sectors.

THE FORUM IS
An organization leading collaboration in support of existing standards and best practices.

Provides an ongoing platform to exchange ideas

“We see this type of collaboration between public and private-sector leaders as an imperative in today’s dangerous and constantly shifting cyber environment. Today’s meeting started an important dialogue between key players.

The new Forum provides an ongoing platform to exchange ideas and develop action plans – not only for the companies and government organizations already well-versed in best practices to combat cyber attacks, but for those still learning the size and scope of the daily cyber threats we all face.”

Prioritize Spending Get Greatest Impact

“We offer affordable insurance to organizations that do the right things to minimize the effect of cyber-attacks. Technical protections are important, but they are not foolproof.  Resilience includes having trained people to identify, limit and recover from incidents.  The Forum to advance Cyber Resilience is bringing a critical mix of government and private sector resources to align standards and prioritize spending to get the greatest impact in limiting cyber risk.”
