Learn how data encryption and encryption key management address compliance for healthcare providers and payers. Join Derek Tumulak, VP Product Management at Vormetric, and Tricia Pattee, HOSTING Product Manager as they discuss how HIPAA/HITECH regulations impact electronic protected health information (PHI) and best practices to safeguard sensitive patient data.
• HIPAA and HITECH regulatory mandates impact data security for healthcare institutions
• Strong encryption and policy-based access controls provide a separation of duties between data security and system administrators
• Secure key management and policy management ensure consistency in applying policies and encryption keys to both structured and unstructured data
• Rapid implementation is achieved because encryption is transparent to users, applications, databases and storage systems
• The HOSTING and Vormetric cloud solution can satisfy HIPAA and HITECH compliance requirements in the cloud
In this presentation, solution providers learn simple steps to help build and grow their IT security practice. Attendees learn about compliance regulations, cloud integration, how to weave security into each opportunity, adherence to best practices, and re-educating customers.
Migrating your Hadoop cluster between versions or distributions is difficult. It is a critical process that if done incorrectly can lead to the loss of data, system downtime, and disruption of business activities.
In this webinar, learn how you can mitigate the risk in a migration through the development of a comprehensive migration strategy and leveraging tools like those from WANdisco to simplify and automate your migration.
For years, most endpoint security strategies have revolved around endpoint anti-virus, but this approach is clearly unable to keep pace with modern threats. To mitigate their risks, IT organizations need to rethink their current endpoint security strategies and move past these reactive security technologies. In order to set organizations down the right path, we will present Forrester’s five design principles of an effective endpoint security strategy, helping security professionals to place attack surface reduction and tool integration as their central focus points within their own strategies. Ultimately, this will allow organizations to better deal with the influx of new device types and data access requirements while reducing the likelihood of data breaches.

This webinar will consider the complementary disciplines of security, crisis, business continuity and disaster response, blending theoretical and practical applications. It should interest practitioners and students of organizational resilience at advanced levels as it will bind together the various complementary disciplines necessary to become resilient into a single holistic approach. The webinar will aim to develop insights and discussion about how to match the needs of security and risk to the requirements of business continuity and impact management; and to identify the intuitive and learned skills to anticipate, respond to and recover from the many unwanted issues that can arise and threaten organizational capability.
It will be set in the context of a dynamic, changing world where new threats such as embedded terrorism, social media risk generation, food and logistics security, environmental issues, governance and legislation (as examples) can affect resilience significantly. Many of us look at single elements – this will combine many complementary and potentially conflicting elements in a single analysis and discussion.

Well-known writer and presenter Nathaniel Forbes MBCI offers three simple steps to help you give more persuasive presentations.
Whether you’re pitching business continuity management to the C-suite, pleading for your department’s headcount or reporting post-exercise successes, you can move your audience to action with these three steps to a persuasive presentation.
1.Develop a ‘story’.
The human brain has been wired for story since our ancestors drew on cave walls. Every disaster, every invocation, every successful recovery reveals stories of sacrifice, personal resilience and individual initiative. Behind the facts, there’s a story in your presentation, too – one your audience will remember.
2.Make an emotional connection.
People may forget what you said, they may forget what you did, but they’ll never forget how you made them feel. To move people to action - to make them care about business continuity - you must reach for their feelings. Gently…but intentionally.
It’s impossible for anyone to read and listen at the same time. Speaking over text bullets on a screen behind you is distracting and confusing to the audience. Instead, choose powerful images that make your point and support your story. The best ones are often the photographs you take yourself.
Dealing with what most businesses would classify as emergencies or serious incidents on a regular basis, the Armed Forces and emergency services have a high degree of built-in resilience, being primarily structured for contingencies. Having moved into business continuity after serving 10 years in the British Army Intelligence Corps, Laura Mazzara shares some of the key lessons she has identified from her Army experiences, and how they can be applied to business continuity. Charlie Maclean-Bristol will consider these lessons from a training perspective and how they can be practically applied to BC training.
This presentation will cover why we should care about the continuity of our supply chain as well as provide tips and explain the support of standards and good practices in managing supply chain continuity.
Cette présentation traitera de pourquoi nous devons nous soucier de la continuité de la chaîne d’approvisionnement. Elle fournira également des trucs et expliquera le soutien que peuvent apporter les normes et les bonnes pratiques dans la gestion de la chaîne d’approvisionnement.
One of the critical success factors for any BCM programme is competent people to undertake all the BC roles that the programme requires. This webinar will explain how to plan a campaign of training and awareness to ensure that everyone who has a role in the programme knows what their role is and has the appropriate knowledge and skills to undertake their role.
Kathleen Lucey FBCI (Montague Risk Management) & Rob Burton (PreparedEx)
Kathleen and Rob will discuss the benefits of injecting chaos / reality into various kinds of BC/DR exercises. Special attention will be paid to the development and and delivery of complex table-top exercises. They will also talk about how tabletop elements can enhance more traditional DR exercises by injecting realism into what are often extremely artificial events. Tabletop exercises are extremely useful for three reasons:
- They exercise areas of disaster management not often covered in DR and BC testing.
- They exercise those teams that are not often rehearsed together in realistic scenarios.
- They teach loosely formed emergency teams how to work together efficiently and effectively under stressful emergency conditions.
The benefits delivered to BCM programs through the use of tabletop exercises are extraordinary, but many practitioners do not yet have the necessary skills to design and execute them. This webinar will give the audience concrete tactics and techniques, as well as a defined methodology that will lead to tabletop successes.
Pandemics occur every twenty to forty years. This webinar will provide attendees with an understanding of the threat and associated issues that are synonymous with pandemics. It will take account of both the business and human aspects of this threat while not just considering businesses in isolation but as part of a greater supply chain.
The session will include:
•Definition of what a pandemic is and why it is so dangerous
•Brief history of pandemics
•Review what contagions are currently on the radar which could develop into a pandemic
•Overview of SARS and the resulting economic tsunami that it caused (cost the global economy an estimated $50 billion)
•Preparation within our critical national infrastructures
•Potential social effects and the knock-on impact on businesses
•Considering mitigation and contingency options
•Human Resource Management issues arising
This webinar underlines the fundamental importance of the one of the most important phases in the BCM lifecycle – the BIA.
Other - subsequent - phases such as selecting one or more business continuity strategies or the formulation of a BC plan, exhibit a much smaller space of choices than the BIA, which is primarily an information gathering stage, charged with understanding the business.
Critically important information needs to be unearthed and, ideally, not one important aspect must be omitted or forgotten. This is the reason why ISO TC 292 (formerly 223), after developing ISO 22301 and ISO 22313, has embarked on developing a standard on the BIA: ISO 22317. It is being presented in another contribution at this conference.
This webinar also focuses on a visualization and presentation method newly applied to the BIA process - in order to better understand a company’s processes, resources and their interdependencies.
The webinar will highlight the advantages of local emergency management (EM) agencies supporting business continuity (BC) programs. The webinar will cover the importance of BC, the placement of BC as a sub-set of EM, provide an overview of the PS Prep program, and most importantly, explain why local emergency management is the most appropriate organization to provide risk awareness as well as offer first level technical support for BC programs to local businesses. My presentation will conclude by offering a road-map for local emergency managers to follow in order to prepare themselves to take on the enhanced responsibility of providing this service.
Just as any organization can face risks and threats and have vulnerabilities; the same is true with members of supply chains. Individual suppliers can be at risk through a variety of events, such as fires, floods, technology failures and power outages.
This webinar discusses risks to supply chains and will provide guidance on identifying those risks and defining strategies for mitigating them.
Today a proactive approach is needed to ensure the ability to adapt to unexpected risks ever more quickly and cost-effectively, to bounce back…resilience.
Resilience is the capability of an organization to deal with incidents that cannot be predicted and to adapt to changes over which we have no control. This presentation will explore the relationship between business continuity management and resilience and some of the ways to build a more resilient organization.
“Following on from David’s article in this quarters Continuity Magazine entitled “The Parry and Riposte of Procurement and BCM” Page 31. David expands on his words “ This article is meant to provoke thought and although I could, I won’t offer a potential process” In this webinar David offers practical methods to deliver resilient supply chains based on his experiences as a Head of Procurement and a Corporate Business Continuity Manager for a FTSE 100 UK based company. David is the author of Continuity Shop’s course on supply chain risk and continuity and was the UK Principal Expert attending the finalisation of the ISO 22318 technical specification on Supply Chain Continuity Management in Japan this year.
Both Business Continuity professionals and procurement professionals would benefit from this webinar, so why not invite your procurement teams to listen in too?
During this webinar, Mustafa will explain how the GSM sector tasked to provide a public service by means of “communication” following natural disasters.
He will discuss how the business continuity team coped in terms of Business Continuity, Information Services and Network Operations, Emergency Management & stakeholder communication via briefing some used cases. He will also explain used cases helped as an organisation to develop guidelines to determine tasks/actions to be performed for further possible cases & improvement areas to develop their processes. He will provide analysis from the ‘post mortem’ analysis that they made following the incident, and the lessons learned that you could apply around your business continuity strategies within your organisation.
This webinar will explore the interrelationship between business continuity and risk, why they need each other to attract the attention of the C Suite and how to approach the implementation of an integrated framework for your organisation.
What is the value of business continuity? That is a question those working in the profession often grapple with, certainly when attempting to justify its existence to top management. In the latest edition of the Business Continuity Institute's Working Paper Series, Dr Clifford Ferguson explores the issue of strategic value and offers a way forward by integrating business continuity into an organization’s strategic plan.
In this webinar, Dr Wolfgang Mahr will explain the fundamental importance of one of the most significant phases of the BCM lifecycle – the Business Impact Analysis. Conducting a BIA is the information gathering stage, where business continuity practitioners are charged with understanding the business before developing strategies and plans that can be put in place to ensure its continuity. Critically important information needs to be unearthed and not one important aspect must be omitted or forgotten. This webinar will offer insights that will help business continuity practitioners better understand a company’s processes, resources and their interdependencies.
John DiMaria AMBCI (ISO Product Manager for BSI Americas)
In today’s economy, companies need to be highly focused on managing costs. Strategies involving far-flung suppliers with single-source, just-in-time contracts and outsourced manufacturing and assembly agreements are aimed at reducing costs and boosting the bottom line. This type of procurement strategy may increase profit margins, but it also significantly raises the risk and potential impact of an unexpected disruption in the supply chain. This is particularly true when little is known about key and critical suppliers and their business continuity plans.
The most recent port slowdown in the US had global ramifications. Eight months of failed labor talks with longshore workers have brought West Coast port congestion to a breaking point.
It is no wonder that the results from the most recent BCI/BSI Horizon Scan report showed that Supply chain disruption has risen by 11 places from 16th last year. As a global economy with so many interrelated processes, it is imperative that we evaluate and address third party risk with the utmost urgency in order to find a way to mitigate and manage them.
Approaches to addressing risk can vary greatly with what types of risk are considered acceptable along with the methods chosen to mitigate and minimize potential impacts. Assessing critical suppliers as well as those downstream Tier 2 and Tier 3 providers is a critical part of doing business in a globalized marketplace. Objective evidence of compliance, such as certification to international business continuity standards like ISO 22301, as well as updating supplier information on a regular basis is quickly becoming part of the initial screening process for choosing suppliers and maintaining a level of confidence and transparency.
Join us as we discuss best practice business solutions.
With over half of companies not feeling well enough prepared for an IT disaster according to recent research, Ian Daly of Plan B Disaster Recovery will be sharing his best practices on how to build a DR solution you can trust. In this webinar we’ll cover:
- What counts as an IT disaster?
- What are the common causes?
- How can you better prepare for an IT disaster?
- Testing – what should you be testing and how often?
- What level of reliability should you be striving to achieve?
- How to maintain trust in your disaster recovery solution
