Risk Mitigation plan

31 Mar

Executive Summary

This Risk Mitigation Plan is for Health Network, Inc. (Health Network), a fictitious health services organization headquartered in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Health Network has over 600 employees throughout the organization and generates $500 million USD in annual revenue. The company has two additional locations in Portland, Oregon and Arlington, Virginia, which support a mix of corporate operations. Each corporate facility is located near a co-location data center, where production systems are located and managed by third-party data center hosting vendors.

Health Network has three main products: HNetExchange, HNetPay, and HNetConnect.

HNetExchange is the primary source of revenue for the company. The service handles secure electronic medical messages that originate from its customers, such as large hospitals, which are then routed to receiving customers such as clinics.

HNetPay is a Web portal used by many of the company’s HNetExchange customers to support the management of secure payments and billing. The HNetPay Web portal, hosted at Health Network production sites, accepts various forms of payments and interacts with credit-card processing organizations much like a Web commerce shopping cart.

HNetConnect is an online directory that lists doctors, clinics, and other medical facilities to allow Health Network customers to find the right type of care at the right locations. It contains doctors’ personal information, work addresses, medical certifications, and types of services that the doctors and clinics offer. Doctors are given credentials and are able to update the information in their profile. Health Network customers, which are the hospitals and clinics, connect to all three of the company’s products using HTTPS connections. Doctors and potential patients are able to make payments and update their profiles using Internet-accessible HTTPS Web sites.

critical “1” Risks and short-term remediation

< For each “1” risk, add the Remediation you would put into place to Mitigate/Control that risk.  Then, add a Cost-Benefit Analysis to show the estimated cost of the loss versus the cost to control the loss.  You will need to think about how you would mitigate/control the risk and what type of cost would be associated with that mitigation.  REMOVE THIS Highlighted Text before submitting the paper for grading.>

The risk/threats identified are:

  1. Loss of customers due to production outages caused by various events, such as natural disasters, change management, unstable software, and others
