Our cyber security responsibilities are a “Cyber Grenade” we must carry whether we are aware or not. The more information assurance responsibility we bear, the larger this Cyber Grenade becomes. Its detonation is a matter of “when”, not “if”, and we cannot predict this eventuality; we may only prepare for it. Your Cyber Grenade impacts others and theirs impacts you; the degree is subjective. This situation is manageable, and we can help. Become aware of your responsibility, take reasonable steps to prevent it from happening, have plans to manage the impact, and become able to recover and resume normal operations.
