Legal Risks of IT Outsourcing & Remedies when gone awry

There is a great temptation for businesses to outsource IT functions to other countries, as part of cost containment efforts. While saving money on the front-end appears appealing, careful thought should be given as to whether this is a penny-wise, pound-foolish approach. When an outsourced IT project goes awry, the burden and expense of remediating the problem can be astronomical. And at times the only way to try to be made whole is to prosecute litigation against the IT companies who ‘got it wrong,’ either based on incompetence or even outright deception

  • Effective crisis communication techniques to avoid a reputation train wreck Effective crisis communication techniques to avoid a reputation train wreck Caroline Sapriel (CS&A International) Recorded: May 20 2016 61 mins
    There are crises and then there are reputation train wrecks. In the former, your organisation is thrown into a period of chaos that may last days, weeks or months. Stakes and costs are high, but by quickly demonstrating ownership, integrity, genuine stakeholder concern and swift action, your chance of recovering and even enhancing your organisation’s reputation is strong. Think Johnson and Johnson’s Tylenol crisis.

    In the latter on the other hand, slow response, lack of responsibility, blame and insensitivity to stakeholders’ perceptions will quickly propel your organisation into a reputation train wreck that may damage and possibly destroy it forever. Think BP, Volkswagen and FIFA.

    Indeed bad management and communication can turn a crisis into a reputation train wreck and only principled-based organisations with effective crisis leadership and preparedness can weather the storm and even emerge from it stronger. In this webinar, you will:

    - Gain some fundamental best practice insight on how prepare for crises and prevent a reputation train wreck
    - Learn real-world response strategies to protect your credibility and retain stakeholder trust even in the most adverse circumstances

  • Smart(phone) Personalization: Apps vs. Bots Smart(phone) Personalization: Apps vs. Bots David Hu, VP of Engineering for Dexter Recorded: May 19 2016 49 mins
    In this webinar, we’re going to talk about how the hyper-personalization of smartphones is taking mobile marketing to an entirely new level. Search Engine Optimization has transformed the way brands are marketers get their products to the public and the trend is reaching into Apps as well. Given that 90% of users’ time on their smartphones are spent on apps (according to some sources), getting users to your particular app can be particularly lucrative.

    But that’s not the only way that Smartphone Personalization is innovating how we market: In-app ads and how to block in-app adds (and how to outsmart them) is the next challenge marketers must face. Our webinar will bring together a mix of voices, all experts in their respective fields, to provide a unique and complex perspective from all angles of Mobile Marketing.

  • Changing your BCMS from a cost of doing business to a business improvement tool Changing your BCMS from a cost of doing business to a business improvement tool John DiMaria (BSI) Recorded: May 19 2016 35 mins
    Due to the recent economic climate, never before have we witnessed the current level of pressure on businesses to protect customers, employees and the business, covering all sides of the organization to make it more resilient. In general, the motivational factor for preventing loss of business assets and ability to operate is financial, and requires that you improve your business not just protect it.

    Many companies struggle and over spend because they decide to throw money and resources at the problem and treat each area of the business as a silo. By taking this approach, the opportunity for an incident is very high and usually does happen. The opportunity for organizations is to recognize a single integrated approach that will address all areas.

    Your BCMS investment should not be a standalone document or simply a cost to your operations. Instead, a strong BCMS supports business operational value.

    You can show an immediate ROI when resiliency and reliability are weaved throughout the design of a system or process instead of adding a business continuity plan as solely a disaster element. In this webinar, John DiMaria AMBCI will discuss multipurpose solutions that increase both reliability and functionality that not only protect your business but improve it.

  • What is the return on investment of business continuity? What is the return on investment of business continuity? Patrick Alcantara DBCI & Andrew Scott CBCI (BCI) Recorded: May 19 2016 50 mins
    The theme for Business Continuity Awareness Week 2016 is return on investment, a theme design to highlight the value of business continuity. During the week, Business Continuity Institute will be publishing a new paper highlighting what some of those returns are. These are returns that go beyond the obvious benefit of BC when disaster occurs, but rather they are returns that do not require the activation of the BC plan. Join Patrick Alcantara DBCI and Andrew Scott CBCI as they present some of the findings from this research.
  • Creating efficiencies through a ‘top-down’ approach to business continuity Creating efficiencies through a ‘top-down’ approach to business continuity Neil Bourke & Lucy Jones (Deloitte) Recorded: May 19 2016 59 mins
    Efficiencies and reduced investment costs associated with business continuity are typically measured, and measurable, during and after an incident. However significant efficiencies in time, money and resource can be gained at the outset by adopting an approach that focuses on what is really critical, optimises existing capabilities and facilitates collaboration across different risk management disciplines. During this webinar, we will aim to show how a strategic, risk-based approach to Business Continuity can create efficiencies for the organisation both in terms of time and financial investment.
