How does one achieve Enterprise Resilience?

Resilient enterprises emphasize the strategic management of risk through the reduction of negative consequences rather than the reduction of probability. Yossi Sheffi of MIT asserts that strategic resileince yields competitive advantage over time. We agree, but how does one effectively manage for resilience, or for that matter how can we improve enterprise security overall?

One key approach is to establish an effective enterprise architecture process within the investment planning cycles, to continously align the design of new investments to the organizational strategy. If resilience is a part of this strategy, then enterprise architecture will incorporate resilient approaches into each iterative change to an organization.
