Uncertain Future Events

Budgets are increasingly under pressure amid reduced revenue outlooks from economic uncertainty, rising interest rates increasing the cost of working capital, and sustained high inflation impacting goods and labor.

Making careful decisions about where to cut is vital, but at what cost?

To succeed, we must communicate and transfer our ideas to each other. Perhaps building a plan based on business impact to reduce the cost and duration of future loss events would be helpful.

Revenue and Reputation Consideration

Priority Matrix For business and technical leadership teams that have financial and reputational incentives to operate with limited disruption because their customers demand reliability. Who are dissatisfied with the current planning and budgeting process to prioritize and allocate limited resources to protect essential income statement activities.

SPOT-Beam Contain is a disciplined PDF guided process for business and technical leadership to recognize and isolate probable security liabilities to reduce the cost and duration of future loss events.

Contain provides a collaborative process for stakeholders to evaluate how cyber risk and cybersecurity investments map to the income statement through loss event scenarios. Unlike the current process that creates frustration and inaction, you will build trust with transparency and collaboration.

How do you adjust for the uncertainty of future loss events?

Imagine knowing the source of your weaknesses with clarity and establishing a plan to build strength in specific areas. This plan of action allows business stakeholders to invest in protecting revenue-generating activities, contain expenses, and safeguard net income.

If uptime and reliability are necessary for your company and customers, then understanding your specific points of truth is essential to reducing expenses. Proactive honesty and actionable plans inform better judgments of value and its comparability to other investments. What difference would that make?

You can continue business as usual to experience the emotional beat down or take action to build value and your reputation.

The Process

You or a member of the organization realize information security is integral to your business, so it is time to see cybersecurity risk differently.

Why? Because everyone in the organization operates somewhere in the income statement.

This PDF template-guided collaboration process of defining your Specific Points of Truth (SPOT) begins with identifying acceptable loss and ends with observing the outcomes from decisive actions.

Too often, people expend resources to get things done instead of focusing on completing the right things. Your decisions to increase value will include acting on a narrow grouping (Beam) of resource allocations to address asset exposures likely to cause loss events.

The team will find the effectiveness of communication, planning, and execution to become more manageable.

Practical Decisions

Business and technical leadership teams often struggle with practical and collaborative business impact-based decision-making. During this process, your SPOT-Beam™ team will recognize and isolate probable contingent liabilities to reduce the cost and duration of future loss events.

The built-in fillable PDF templates provide preset structures for collaboration, evaluation, and decisive actions for probable contingent liabilities. Here’s how the template pack works.

  1. Identify Loss Criteria: How does executive leadership define the criteria for loss measurement?
  2. Define Assets: What assets have a value that requires protection?
  3. Evaluate Threats: What are the probable threats to the assets that could cause loss to our business?
  4. Prioritize Loss Events: What issues and loss event scenarios did the group prioritize during the process?
  5. Action Decisions: Which assets will we focus resources on to protect? Which assets will we defer and accept loss events?
  6. Observe Outcomes: Did we execute our plans successfully? Did we overestimate our tolerance for disruption?

Unlike current methods that stimulate misunderstanding, disagreement, inaction, and liabilities regarding data security. This process will transform how resources are allocated and tracked to support the future performance of the company.

Reduce the cost and duration of future loss events.

Do you consider a week of downtime a headache or a deep laceration requiring immediate attention? Investing $1,500 to avoid a headache may not be viable. Still, you would likely trade a small investment to limit the cost of business disruption if a week of downtime would dramatically impact your reputation and income statement.

Our clients count on SPOT-Beam Contain to help them grow and protect their businesses and careers. You will protect sensitive data, minimize operational disruptions, and enhance your reputation, among other benefits.  

This plan allows companies to invest in protecting revenue-generating activities and their bottom line.

Are the costs of downtime adequate motivation for you?
