  • Improving business resilience through Software Asset Management
    Improving business resilience through Software Asset Management Deepak Singh, President & CEO of Gorisco Solutions Recorded: Apr 8 2017 60 mins
    Software Asset Management and compliance is gaining more importance day by day due to the outburst of Information technology and increasing dependency of businesses on IT. Many software licenses are purchased by IT or businesses out of necessity and then forgotten due to its intangible form. Even freeware and open source software are downloaded and used by employees. As Software Asset Management (SAM) involves a lot of complexities, an objective based implementation and management of software assets is very critical. This session will give more insights into SAM and recommended best practices to ensure businesses do not end up getting into legal issues and losing revenues due to ignorance and poor management of software assets.

  • Latest trends revealed: The 2016 BCI Emergency Communications Report
    Latest trends revealed: The 2016 BCI Emergency Communications Report Owen Miles (Everbridge) & Patrick Alcantara DBCI (BCI) Recorded: Jan 17 2017 59 mins
    The Business Continuity Institute (BCI) has just published its latest research project, The Emergency Communications Report. The annual report surveyed over 600 industry professionals, reviewing emergency communications and security incident response plans for organizations around the world. This year’s findings revealed that global businesses are increasingly aware that true business resiliency is a company-wide initiative that involves taking accountability for the safety of all staff—whether they are located in the office, at home or on the road. Respondents indicated that a diversity of departments, including business continuity, IT, security, facilities, HR and more had a stake in the management, planning and enforcement of their organization’s emergency communications plans, but that an opportunity exists to optimize these processes to account for a global, mobile workforce, as well as the increased complexity and frequency of critical events and physical security incidents.

    Join Owen Miles, Managing Consultant from Everbridge, and Patrick Alcantara DBCI, Senior Research Associate at the BCI and the author of the report, for an engaging webinar that will discuss the research findings and share additional best practices for critical communications.
  • Latest trends revealed: Business in blockchain
    Latest trends revealed: Business in blockchain Pradeep Prasad Recorded: Jan 7 2017 60 mins
    Despite many business and technology innovations, business frictions still exist. Key business frictions drive delays, costs and risks.
    In this presentation, we examine the dimensions of business friction and attributes of blockchains that can break the status quo. Blockchains can vaporize business frictions, redefining the structure of future business networks and creating new opportunities for business transformation
    As this transformation unfolds, three things will change: a new science of organizational management, the tightening of trust and a new nexus for value exchange will emerge

    And finally, as companies seize the opportunity available to them, businesses can take few steps to best extract value from blockchains. And as the risk of doing business reduces, as the risk of formal financial reporting reduces, Business Continuity and Resilience is assured. Disaster Recovery becomes key to ensuring Blockchain delivers on its promise.

    Join Veteran Commander Pradeep Prasad, Chairman of BCI Bengaluru Forum for an engaging webinar that will demystify Blockchain for the audience.

  • Making to the jump to risk management
    Making to the jump to risk management Jeff Blackmon FBCI Recorded: Sep 28 2016 64 mins
    There has always been change in our profession. We originally started by implementing disaster recovery programmes. Soon after that, the businesses realized that the people aspect of recovery was needed as well. The results were the beginning of business continuity programmes. DR and BC have worked together almost two decades now with great success. We are now at a major transformation point again. Business continuity is now sharing more information and interacting more with security and compliance groups.

    This session will go over what most of us already have in place, what we will need to add, and how all three groups interface together to provide a new resilience program for your environment. The goal of this session is to show the interactions between risk management, business continuity, security and compliance that form the components of a resilience programme.
  • Decision making under pressure
    Decision making under pressure Paul Breed MBCI Recorded: Sep 27 2016 46 mins
    Business continuity can be a high pressured role at times, with many decisions having to be made under that pressure. It is important to be able to manage it effectively and so ensure the right decision is taken, whatever the circumstances. In this webinar, Paul Breed MCBI presents a decision making model which includes:

    Information - (Fact, Assumption, Gaps - urgency)
    Threat and Risk Assessment - based on Identity, Capability, Intention
    Development of a Working Strategy - that dovetails the Threat and Risk Assessment
    Options - ideally from a predetermined tactical menu that reduces time critical decision making
    Action - based on the agreed option together with contingencies
    Review - constantly review the decision especially when new information comes to light
  • Business continuity requires a security architecture to reduce risk and cost
    Business continuity requires a security architecture to reduce risk and cost Jeff Primus AMBCI (Actagis) Recorded: Sep 26 2016 46 mins
    The frequency of cyber-attacks continues to increase at an unparalleled pace. By attacking the most vulnerable value chains of organizations, they result in information confidentiality & integrity breaches, discontinuity of business activities and huge damages. Once considered predominantly as a technological issue, the risks related to the information systems are now evaluated within the Enterprise Risk Management scope. On the other hand, traditionally, Business Continuity Management (BCM) is mostly treated as a domain separate from Information System Security Management (ISSM). With the rapid explosion of cyber threats, the alignment between BCM and ISSM is now becoming a must, in order to provide management with a holistic view and enabling them to implement organizations where the teams closely interact with each other.

    It goes without saying that the organizational part of security and BCM is the key for a successful implementation, yet the information system (IS) part needs to also be addressed in an efficient way. Various standards and frameworks exist to help organizations implementing a BCM, but they lack a strong link with the governance, architecture and security of the IS. In this webinar we will introduce very briefly an innovative approach and describe the first steps for the linkage between the two worlds, enabling an efficient implementation of BC based on an architectured and secured IS.
