IDG Contributor Network: The challenge of project risk management
Risk management. Security. It’s a myth. We can analyze risk for a year for a two-month project and we still couldn’t cover everything. We could build the best security possible…and if someone wants in there is always someone out there who is good enough and skilled enough and bad enough to do it. There is no such thing as a sure thing.
The security and disaster demos
Yes, on our big IT projects we parade our customers through onsite dog and pony shows or even offsite proof of concept demos that show how – in the event of a catastrophe or epic failure or hacking job of awesome magnitude – we could resume operations within hours on their critical data-centric project and we can make it look like we pulled it off without a hitch.
