  • 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.

  • ISO 22301 – benefits and 'how-to' for organizations and professionals ISO 22301 – benefits and 'how-to' for organizations and professionals Marie-Hélène Primeau MBCI Recorded: Sep 22 2016 35 mins

It will also present the training course offered by the BCI to improve knowledge of this Standard and a staged approach to certification with the self-assessment tool. The training and tool were developed by ICOR, the International Consortium for Organizational Resilience.

  • CPD – making it up as I went along CPD – making it up as I went along Patrick Roberts MBCI Recorded: Sep 21 2016 41 mins
    Patrick Roberts is a Director of Cambridge Risk Solutions Ltd and has been an MBCI since 2007. In this webinar he looks back at some of his CPD activities over the last ten years, ranging from courses and conferences to books and journals. Although CPD within the BCI is now much more structured, and many more courses are available; he argues that some of the avenues that he has pursued may still be of value to future generations of business continuity practitioners.
  • Business continuity awareness: Lessons from potty training Business continuity awareness: Lessons from potty training Helen Molyneux MBCI Recorded: Sep 20 2016 37 mins
    Increasing business continuity awareness often focuses on posters and newsletter campaigns, and ensuring that staff know where the policy and plans are kept. However, ISO 22301 requires that awareness includes staff understanding ‘their contribution to the effectiveness of the BCMS’, not just the plan. This presentation will consider a broader approach to awareness within an organisation, considering approaches to make all aspects of a BCMS second nature, and an integral part of business as usual.
  • Horizon scanning – predicting future risks Horizon scanning – predicting future risks James McAlister FBCI Recorded: Sep 19 2016 48 mins
    Effective organizational resilience depends upon the ability of senior management teams to predict and therefore adapt to rapidly changing external threats. The lead time once enjoyed by decision makers to analyse and respond is ever decreasing. Traditional planning methods, do not allow leaders to anticipate global challenges as they generally focus inwards and rely on historical data.

    The presentation provides some basic advice on how you could use horizon scanning methodology to help predict future risks to your organization.
  • Integrating the 'pieces' of incident management in your organization Integrating the 'pieces' of incident management in your organization Kathleen Lucey FBCI Recorded: Sep 15 2016 55 mins
    How we got to where we are, and what you need now to manage your recovery from all kinds of incidents, including cyber attacks. It's not the same old business continuity or disaster recovery anymore!
  • Want value from Lifelong Learning? Focus on the future Want value from Lifelong Learning? Focus on the future Ken Simpson FBCI Recorded: Sep 14 2016 34 mins
    Do we base our approach to learning on past practice or expectations of future practice? Perhaps we think our past practices are 'best' and will not change much in the next 5-10 years?

    6 years ago there wasn’t an iPad - and 10 years ago there were no iPhones. As the world changes so too must the practice of BC.

    The needs of the generations that entered the workforce in the past 10 years will have to guide the nature of future practice - and that practice will need to inform what and how we learn.

    This interactive session will examine generational change in the workplace, and the opportunity it presents to shape future practice.
