The Leading Risks to Museums and Enterprise Security Risk Management for Cultural Properties
June 20, 2019
Enterprise Risk Management or ERM offers a logical approach to identifying, assessing, monitoring and response planning for both natural and anthropogenic threats to an organization. In the museum environment this is oriented toward the protection of cultural properties. Risks may not always arise within the core functional areas of a cultural property (exhibitions, loans, collection management, visitor services, etc.) but rather most often are issues having to do with the ancillary functions of operating a large, publicly-accessible facility. This presentation will address the application of best practices in an ERM framework for a museum environment, including a discussion on Business Continuity Planning/ Contingency Planning and thereafter exploring some of the top vulnerabilities encountered during museum risk assessments.
