Operational Resilience

The Increasing Importance of Operational Resilience

From cyberattacks, natural disasters, and pandemics to other internal interruptions, organizations face growing threats that can cause widespread operational disruption. Organizations must create an environment of resiliency by integrating disparate programs to mitigate these risks and align with an increasing regulatory focus and ensure that critical business services continue to be delivered when these threats become real.

CrossCountry’s team members have extensive financial services expertise and can help clients assess, develop, and implement overarching operational resilience programs, provide support and insight to improve each of the various resiliency initiatives and integrate them under a robust, cross-organizational governance framework.

Building Operational Resilience

Operational resiliency can and should directly incorporate existing business continuity planning, disaster recovery, cybersecurity, and other programs. Building resiliency will add enhancements to existing programs and enable a pivot from focusing on resilience of systems to identifying critical business services and ensuring those continue to function during a disruption.
