The world is moving out of the ‘flat’ mode of the economic cycle. The uneven recovery is making businesses hesitant and some are panicking as we appear to enter the feared double-dip.
The Third Wave is the final phase of the recessionary cycle where the market bottoms out and turns towards strong recovery. While the double-dip recession might be a worrying place to be for some business owners, it also provides a hugely significant wealth creating opportunity.
Timing what you do in response to the market, is key.
This seminar will provide you with the market and business insights that will enable you to act with confidence to grow your business faster through the next phase of the economy.
Specifically, this seminar will:
•Help you identify where your business is in its lifecycle and how that impacts your decision-making
•Demonstrate how the current economic cycle presents a unique challenge for business owners wanting to maximise the value of their businesses
•Show you some of the key strategic investments that will enable you to overcome that challenge to build value faster
•Teach you how you can do more with less to free up resources for growth

According to Symantec’s 2011 SMB Disaster Preparedness Survey report, the findings show that though SMBs are at risk, they are still not making disaster preparedness a priority until they experience a disaster or data loss. Half of the respondents do not have a plan in place, even though 65 percent of respondents live in regions susceptible to natural disasters.
The data also reveals that the cost of not being prepared is high, putting an SMB at risk of going out of business. The median cost of downtime for an SMB is $12,500 per day.
According to the survey, downtime not only costs SMBs several thousands of dollars, it also causes their customers to leave. Fifty-four percent of SMB customer respondents reported they have switched SMB vendors due to unreliable computing systems.
Symantec’s Monica Girolami will discuss the findings from the Symantec 2011 SMB Disaster Preparedness Survey report, and share tips for small businesses to follow when pulling together a disaster preparedness plan.

A study by the University of Worcester shows that nearly 60 per cent of businesses polled currently have no security policy in place and are ill-prepared to meet the real and increasing threat to their business information. The research also shows how businesses who fail to maintain adequate information security measures are putting their supply chain partners at risk of being targeted.
A complementary study published by the Information Commissioner's Office cites the need for an affordable information security certification for SMEs that will encourage good security practices and encourage business with their customers without complicated forms and second-party audits.
IASME is a national programme that provides qualifying SMEs (less than 250
staff) with certification that has been specifically designed with the small business in mind. The programme is well grounded in international standards and has credibility and affordability built in.
IASME certification reassures your customers that you manage their information securely; it can be the make or break decision as to whether you get their business.
IASME certification can be the credentials you need to form supply chains and partnerships for effective and successful business deals.
IASME certification is a framework for effective and efficient information security practices that are designed to keep you working and the keep authorities who can fine malpractice at bay.
IASME is a programme to ensure that profits stay with you rather than compensate for information security breaches.
