Ronald E. Horne
This Risk Management Plan is an overall look at how Defense Logistics Information Service can protect it’s data. The implication of lost confidential government data is the primary cause for this plan, and will be treated with the utmost importance.
2. GUIDING PRINCIPLES
This plan will be presented through a formal, written, written risk management, and security safety program.
The Security Safety and Risk Management Program supports the DLIS philosophy that government safety and risk management is everyone’s responsibility. Teamwork and participation among management, providers, and staff are essential for an efficient and effective patient safety and risk management program. The program will be implemented through the coordination of multiple organizational functions and the activities of multiple departments.
DLIS supports the establishment of such clauses and best practices. An in depth look at mistakes made and ways we can learn from them will be at the forefront of out investigation. Constructive feedback will play a large part as well. In a just culture, unsafe conditions and hazards are readily and proactively identified, mistakes are openly dicussed, and suggestions for systematic improvements are welcomed. Individuals are still held accountable for compliance with safety and risk management practives. As such, if evaluation and investigation of an error or even reveal reckless behavior or willfull violation of policies, disciplinary actions can be taken.
