Corporate Defense Management (CDM) Definition
Corporate defense refers to a collection of program, measures and strategies that a company uses for its self-defense. This includes how a company is governed and how its operations are aligned to serve as its justification or defense in times of danger.
Corporate Defense Management (CDM) is a framework that organizations use in integrating its constituents and managing its components to achieve a corporate defense program. CDM is often multidimensional and strategic. This type of management encompasses the key components of an organization which include governance, control measures, risk, security, compliance, resilience and others to achieve a tenable corporate defense program for the organization.
