  • Critical Event Management Insights from BlackBerry with IDC Research Recorded: Aug 30 2021 58 mins
    David Wiseman, Vice President Secure Communications, BlackBerry | Featuring Guest Speaker, Alison Brooks, IDC Research
    Organizations have always faced risks from natural, technological, and human-caused critical events, but not to the extent and frequency being seen today. Between 2000 and 2019, the number of recorded natural disasters doubled from roughly 200 to 400 per year, averaging 380 annually over the past decade. Since 2000, natural disasters have racked up global economic losses of nearly $1.4 trillion and disrupted the lives of some 1.7 billion people worldwide.

    In today’s threat environment, organizations need next-gen critical event management (CEM) systems that reduce risk exposure and enhance operational resilience.

    Join David Wiseman, BlackBerry VP of Secure Communications, and guest speaker Alison Brooks, IDC Research Vice President of Worldwide Public Safety, where they share best practices for managing critical events.

    Among other topics, David and Alison will discuss:

    -The planning and processes required to successfully manage the Prepare, Respond, Recover, and Continuously Improve stages of a critical event.
    -Why critical event communications should be seamless, consistent, and integrated across multiple channels.
    -The role CEM plays in helping organizations achieve their goals for digital transformation.
    -How to assess next-gen CEM system capabilities for risk assessment, sustainability, scalability, accountability, automation, and employee satisfaction and productivity.
    -If you have a stake in enhancing your organization’s resilience and continuity programs, we urge you to attend this essential management briefing.
  • Aberdeen and BlackBerry: Critical Event Landscape, Insights and Future Recorded: Aug 26 2021 58 mins
    Sabrina Forgione Director, Critical Event Management Marketing
    The hourly costs of downtime caused by a critical event can range from an average of $300,000 to seven figures. Still, many organizations remain unprepared to respond effectively, leaving themselves vulnerable not only to financial losses, but also to reputational damage, regulatory penalties, and, in the most extreme cases, loss of life.

    Next-gen critical event management (CEM) solutions can alleviate these risks by providing stakeholders with accurate, timely, and actionable information about an unfolding crisis, along with robust plans and processes for incident response and recovery.

    A new survey by Aberdeen Strategy & Research2 found that organizations with next-gen CEM solutions deployed are three times more likely than peers without CEM solutions to resolve critical events in less than a day, and twice as likely to avoid revenue impacts.

    Join us as BlackBerry hosts special guest Jim Rapoza, Aberdeen VP & Principal Analyst Information Technology, for an in-depth analysis of today’s CEM threat landscape. During his wide-ranging presentation. Jim will review the survey results, share CEM best practices, and discuss such topics as:

    -The growing number of critical events and the challenges that organizations are facing today.
    -How the rise of CEM bridges the gap between emergency notification systems and IT, and cybersecurity monitoring and prevention capabilities.
    -Key benefits that leading organizations are gaining to limit and even prevent critical events from disrupting their operations.
    -Real world examples of how peers have implemented and benefited from CEM solutions.

    If you have a stake in enhancing your organization’s resilience and continuity programs, we urge you to attend this essential management briefing.

  • Future-Proof Productivity & Security for Hybrid Workforce Recorded: Aug 17 2021 46 mins
    Alex Willis, VP Global Sales Engineering and ISVs, BlackBerry | Arnaud Marliére, Chief Sales & Marketing Officer, Awingu
    There is no set model on how companies transition their employees from remote to a hybrid work environment. Over half of employees (55%) prefer to be remote at least three days a week once pandemic concerns recede — little changed from the 59% who said the same in June. For their part, while most executives expect options for remote work, they are also worried about the effects: 68% say a typical employee should be in the office at least three days a week to maintain a distinct company culture.

    BlackBerry offers a complete, holistic solution that will address productivity and security challenges in shifting work conditions.
