The Blurring Boundaries of Enterprise Security Risks

Brian Bobo, Vice President, Enterprise Security at Schneider National participates in Risk Roundup with Jayshree Pandya to discuss “Enterprise Security Risks”.



The Digital Global Age has pushed the traditional boundaries of each and every enterprise across each and every nation: its government, industries, organizations and academia (NGIOA). As the emerging borderless world redefines the very parameters and perimeters of an Enterprise, managing the undefined and undocumented borders and securing them in an increasingly borderless world has become a complex challenge. Building, Managing and Securing any Enterprise in a borderless world is complex as it requires not only understanding of a world that has triangular linkages between geospace, cyberspace and space, but also has dotted and solid line reporting relationships between an enterprise and NGIOA.
When any single Enterprise across any NGIOA tries to secure its undefined and porous borders amidst dotted and solid relationships, the intended, unintended and perverse consequences are creating a challenge in defining, building, managing and maintaining a stable and sustainable Enterprise Security System. The focus here on an Enterprise Security System, is to emphasize that it is the enterprise, its ideas, initiatives, relationships, and activities that are to be secured in a digital global age, and that the security of data, computers and networks is only a means to this end.

About the Host of Risk Roundup
Jayshree Pandya (née Bhatt) is a visionary leader, who is working passionately with imagination, insight and boldness to achieve “Global Peace through Risk Management”. It is her strong belief that collaboration between and across nations: its government, industries, organizations and academia (NGIOA) will be mutually beneficial to all—for not only in the identification and understanding of critical risks facing one nation, but also for managing the interconnected and interdependent risks facing all nations. She calls on nations to build a shared sense of identity and purpose, for how the NGIOA framework is structured will determine the survival and success of nations in the digital global age. She sees the big picture, thinks strategically and works with the power of intentionality and alignment for a higher purpose—for her eyes are not just on the near at hand but on the future of humanity!
At Risk Group, Jayshree is defining the language of risks and currently developing thought leadership, researching needed practices, tools, framework and systems to manage the “strategic and shared risks” facing nations in a “Global Age”. She believes that cyberspace cannot be secured if NGIOA works in silo within and across its geographical boundaries. As cyber-security requires an integrated NGIOA approach with a common language, she has recently launched “cyber-security risk research center” that will merge the boundaries of “geo-security, cyber-security and space-security”.
Previously, she launched and managed “Risk Management Matters”, an online risk journal and one of the first risk publications, publishing “Industry Risk Reports of Biotechnology, Energy, Healthcare, Nanotechnology, and Natural Disasters” over the course of five years. Jayshree’s inaugural book, “The Global Age: NGIOA @ Risk”, was published by Springer in 2012.

About Risk Group
Risk Group believes that risk management, security and peace walk together hand in hand. Though security is related to management of threats and peace to the management of conflict, risk management is related to management of security vulnerabilities as well as management of conflict, and it is not possible to conceive any one of the three without the existence of the other two. All three concepts feed into each other. Risk Group believes that the security we build for ourselves is precarious and uncertain until it is secured for everyone across nations. Tradition becomes our security-so if we build a culture of managing risks effectively it will lead us to security and security will lead us to peace!
