It's a crowded marketplace for the many small business owners who realize that their brand is their business. How do you define your worth?

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.

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
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.
The webinar will report on the most comprehensive research to date about hotel social media. Social media plays an ever-increasing role in a hotel’s business; therefore, it is necessary for hoteliers to understand its use and impact. The research study was conducted by Bjorn Hanson, clinical professor, Tisch Center for Hospitality and Tourism at New York University, and Donna Quadri-Felitti, director and associate professor, School of Hospitality Management at Penn State University. Their study findings were based on responses of U.S. Hoteliers, just like you, and include investment, staffing, objectives, room nights generated, and differences and trends by location, size of hotel, franchised/managed and other attributes.

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.
