    Abstract:

    Got cloud? If you’re an SMB, you’ve already been there, done that. But are you really extracting maximum value out of your cloud hosted solutions?

    SMBs use an average of five hosted services, between IaaS, hosted email and collaboration and business applications – and that number is expected to climb to almost ten cloud services by next year. Everyone’s dabbling, but SMBs crave the cloud sophistication of their enterprise-grade competitors.

    - How are enterprises pivoting so quickly to respond to operational goals and drive bottom line results?
    - How can SMBs use cloud functions to serve an ever-impatient customer base?
    - Can SMBs realize the kind of growth and innovation through cloud services that enterprises expect?
    - And more importantly, how do SMB CIOs get their hands on all of those pretty, shiny enterprise toys?

    We’ll answer those questions and more with this expert panel of enterprise leaders who will share their strategies for success that SMBs can copy by using cloud services.

  • IRM is leading the debate on risk culture. Drawing upon the wealth of practical experience and expert knowledge across the institute, we have developed guidance for organisations wanting a greater understanding of their own risk culture and practical tools that can be applied to drive change.

    As seen in the business press every day, embedding risk management into an organisation to the extent that it reliably makes a difference is a difficult task. To achieve this, boards must keep how to manage risks high on their agenda, and to continue asking themselves, whether they have the right culture, people and processes.

    What do we mean by risk culture?

    Risk culture is a term describing the values, beliefs, knowledge, attitudes and understanding about risk shared by a group of people with a common purpose, in particular the employees of an organisation. This applies to all organisations from private companies, public bodies, governments to not-for-profits.

    What does a good risk culture look like?

    An effective risk culture is one that enables and rewards individuals and groups for taking the right risks in an informed manner.
  • 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 are the common causes?

  • James McAlister has been developing and facilitating exercises for over 30 years.

The webinar will introduce an exercise model and simple techniques to enable participants to conduct their own effective exercises.
  • With business continuity planning covering everything from natural disasters to building infrastructure, resilient businesses will have thoroughly tested IT backup in place for their critical applications, such as failover connectivity and secondary datacentres.

    But what happens if the resilience of the underlying IT is untested? Trends such as BYOD, Cloud and Mobility are creating new challenges for IT, particularly with maturing technology, where the risk to information security and business continuity could be high. New applications that have been integrated into existing systems can expose multiple points of failure as data is transferred in different formats between different systems.

    In this webinar, Lucas and Mark will be discussing how to ensure that in today’s interconnected business, all unforeseen IT eventualities are mitigated before the crucial BCP test. Here’s how:

    - Establish a strong Quality Assurance process that drives consistency across your organisation
    - Regularly assess the overall quality of your IT systems to highlight any risks and potential points of failure
    - Ensure that IT is central to all decisions involving the adoption of new technology across the organisation

    This session is essential for not only understanding the practicalities of safeguarding the resiliency of your IT but also how to develop underlying controls to prevent new ways of working spiralling into business continuity failure.
  • This webinar is based on actual experiences gained in conducting BCM tests under varying conditions and environments, including ICT as well as Business and Incident Management testing across a number of industrial sectors.

    - Relocation testing, announced and unannounced
    - Barriers to effective relocation
    - Environmental, political and geographic obstacles
    - Expectations and Cynicism
    - Social media
    - Component testing, integrating both technical and business challenges
    - The Crisis Management Simulation
    - Real time Scenario based testing – pros and cons
    - Lessons, a snapshot
  • Representative IT DR testing is essential to demonstrate that the capability will meet the businesses recovery requirements and justify the investment in the ITDR. However the challenges with ITDR testing and shortfalls within the underlying programme often leads to tests that prove little, give the organisation a false sense of security, deny any opportunity to improve the capability and ultimately put the organisation at risk.

    In this Webinar we will explore the challenges associated with ITDR testing, how to overcome them and the pointers to the issues in the underlying programme.
  • Tous les professionnels rêvent que les participants aient hâte au prochain exercice sur table lorsqu’ils reçoivent l’invitation. Ce webinaire fournira des trucs sur comment rendre les exercices sur table dynamiques avec des exemples concrets tout en permettant de rencontrer les objectifs fixés.
