While not every business risk can be eliminated, many can be mitigated and managed. To contain business risk within acceptable levels, an enterprise and its value chain partners must ensure that their combined infrastructure is resilient —fortifed, recoverable and adaptable. From a business perspective, a resilient infrastructure can protect the ability of the value chain to “deliver the goods” regardless of unexpected events. 

An organization’s infrastructure can be quite complex. It consists of many components that sustain the delivery mechanisms necessary for the business to achieve its goals and objectives. In many cases, this infrastructure extends beyond the enterprise walls through a dynamic value chain of suppliers, distributors, partners, and even customers. To reduce complexity and improve
management insight into potential risks and exposures, a business and its value chain can be viewed through the lens of six unique “solution layers.”
