  • Business Continuity Management in an international travel group
    Business Continuity Management in an international travel group Wolfgang Mahr Recorded: Sep 29 2017 39 mins
    Business Continuity Management in an international travel group: when holiday paradise turns into a disaster site.

    Business Continuity Management (BCM) protects organizations from the impacts of business disruptions. Threats may originate from various origins and may hit an organization without their fault. Effective protection is achieved by following established methodologies such as the BCI Good Practice Guidelines and/or international standards – providing a predetermined level of operation during a crisis.
    Within the tourism industry, much higher requirements prevail: on top of the classic requirement to protect the organization, it has the responsibility to care for the wellbeing of their travelling customers. The focus in on those travelers who already being on their journey. These requirements dictate that two intertwined projects need to be realized, significantly increasing the complexity of the BCM approach.
  • It’s Not Either Or … It’s Both & More
    It’s Not Either Or … It’s Both & More Martin Fenlon MBCI Recorded: Sep 28 2017 45 mins
    You cannot see in total light or total darkness; there will always be shades of grey. This webinar will explore the relationship between business continuity and organisational resilience by addressing key issues such as:

    -At what level of authority and influence in the organisation (if any) is there oversight of all the resilience activities so that synergies can be exploited, unnecessary redundancies eliminated and duplication avoided?

    -How and how often do the managers of these disciplines talk to each other about the combined contribution of their separate programmes that support organisational resilience?

    -How is the personal resilience of individuals being developed so they will be able to perform their roles and responsibilities in the event of a disruption?

    -What value does the validation phase (exercising and audit) add to resilience programmes?
    This webinar will provide an overview of the business continuity life cycle and suggest the needs to integrate this capability with wider organisation resilience activities. This supports a cyclical and ongoing discipline consistent with our understanding of organisational resilience as an evolution, not a “fix”.

  • Once bitten Twice Shy – (Maybe)!
    Once bitten Twice Shy – (Maybe)! Mark Penberthy FBCI Recorded: Sep 26 2017 31 mins
    One would think that catastrophic incidents of global proportions would cause organizations globally to exercise extra vigilance in ensuring that these events do not recur, particularly in their proverbial back yards!

    Surprisingly, as we continue to analyze events which have caused untold damage and disruption to organizations, we have to ask ourselves; are they becoming less frequent and why do we seem to see history repeating itself?
  • BCI Cyber Resilience Report 2017
    BCI Cyber Resilience Report 2017 Gianluca Riglietti CBCI Recorded: Sep 25 2017 26 mins
    The BCI Cyber Resilience Report is an analysis of cyber security incidents experienced by organizations across the world, and how they respond to them. These types of incidents are not rare occurrences with two-thirds of organizations experiencing at least one disruption during the previous year, while 15% report at least ten. Furthermore, one third of respondents report cumulative losses in excess of €50,000, while 13% put this figure in excess of €250,000.
  • Out with the old, in with the new: changing perceptions of Business Continuity.
    Out with the old, in with the new: changing perceptions of Business Continuity. Chris Rhodes (Senior Consultant, PlanB Consulting) and Gordon Brown (Senior Consultant, PlanB Consulting) Recorded: Sep 22 2017 39 mins
    Chris and Gordon argue that a lasting tendency to focus on outdated or improbable threats, risks alienating millennials and may even de-value the BC profession in the future. Take, for example, loss of staff due to a winning lottery syndicate, or even the ever-prominent focus on loss of premises. Whilst we cannot rule out any eventuality, is this really the kind of subject matter that will excite prospective millennial BC professionals?
    Talking from their own experience and looking at the 2017 BCI Horizon Scan Report, they discuss the current threat landscape, arguing that with growing digitalisation and increased cyber risks, never before has there been such exciting prospects for young people in BC.
  • The “Good” BIA
    The “Good” BIA Kathleen Lucey FBCI Recorded: Sep 20 2017 49 mins
    This webinar will enter the current “BIA Controversy” with a description of what works….and what doesn’t.
    I learned in 1991 what makes a BIA “not work” when my team and I had to deal with a BIA report that had covered all sites of a global firm.. Key characteristics: it took over 2 years to complete and had cost nearly half a million dollars, did not provide a basis for building a plan, and much of the information was out of date. So I made a few common-sense process changes that made all the difference in going forward to complete useful plans in a reasonable time-frame.
  • Third Party Dependencies and semolina
    Third Party Dependencies and semolina Martin Caddick FBCI Recorded: Sep 20 2017 45 mins
    This session is about thinking and planning outside your own organization boundaries as well as inside.
    I will use the ‘Great semolina disaster of Yarmouth’ as a case study, looking at what you might reasonably be expected to foresee, and why sharing plans is a good thing. I will also look at some case studies that changed the focus of regulators, who have become increasingly concerned about interdependencies between organizations.
    I will then look at what needs to be done to make sure you are working in the right way with the right third parties.
  • How to Improve BC/DR Programs by Auditing
    How to Improve BC/DR Programs by Auditing Paul Kirvan FBCI Recorded: Sep 19 2017 49 mins
    This webinar discusses how to leverage auditing skills, particularly IT auditing, to improve BC and DR programs. We will discuss how to design BC/DR controls, examine and analyze them in existing BC/DR programs, and prepare work papers that summarize the audit results. One of the key components of the ISO BC and DR standards is reviewing and auditing BC management systems and DR programs to ensure they are compliant with standards and good practice. We will refer to ISO 22301:2012 and ISO 27031:2011, as well as the BCI’s Good Practice Guidelines, in the course of the presentation.
