Vision, Mission, and Goals
Prior to beginning work on this discussion, read Chapter 11 in your primary textbook and Chapter 5 in your secondary textbook, and review the handout from Week One on the sixteen critical infrastructure sectors (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site. provided by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS).
The vision and mission of an organization describes how they intend to operate the business. Given that the sixteen sectors are so important to our way of life, there should be provisions in place to manage the risks of threats and protect the sectors’ future capability to provide service to the American people. Most private sectors do not address risks and threats in their mission statements.
For the assignment…
Choose a utility provider of one of the sixteen sectors from the DHS Critical Infrastructures webpage (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site.. Research the vision and mission of a local provider of this service (for example, the local electric or gas company) whose mission statement does not clearly address risks and threats.
For this assignment, you will assume the role of a new leader within the chosen sector. As the new leader, you need to further the mission statement by addressing how the utility will manage the risks of threats and protect the critical sectors from such threats. Post the original mission statement and add at least three substantive modifications to the mission statement explaining how the utility will address these risks and threats.
