No matter how well designed and built your data center infrastructure may be, ultimately it is the day-to-day operations activities and management decisions where the success of your mission stands or falls. In fact, the leading cause of downtime is human error. To mitigate risks, achieve your business goals, and meet uptime requirements, it is critical to unify operating behaviors with the functionality of your infrastructure. These panelists will discuss how they have achieved M&O excellence across their global portfolios leveraging the Uptime Institute M&O Stamp of Approval.
The pursuit of Data Center Infrastructure Management (DCIM) benefits leads, too often, in a procurement and implementation process take too long, the software costs too much and the tools often under-deliver. Often, organizations fail to define business requirements for DCIM and evaluate options in a holistic and consistent framework. This webinar can help provide insight into why those outcomes occur and how to avoid.

Los datos no estructurados de la empresa son cada vez más un activo imprescindible para los servicios y procesos de negocio. Sin embargo, su crecimiento exponencial hace que las tecnologías tradicionales de protección de este tipo de datos sean no solo ineficientes sino incapaces de responder a las necesidades de disponibilidad en entornos empresariales.
En este webinar veremos tres áreas de innovación de Commvault que permiten responder a las necesidades de protección de datos no estructurados:
-En la primera parte, expondremos las novedades en la tecnología IntelliSnap, que permite la integración con nuevos fabricantes y la gestión de réplicas de volúmenes; asimismo hablaremos de la nueva tecnología de captura de bloques que extiende el concepto de protección continua y consistente a cualquier tipo de sistema de ficheros y base de datos, para disponer de un número ilimitado de puntos de recuperación de acceso nativo.

Únase a nosotros para conocer cómo la Plataforma de Gestión de Datos de Commvault le permite cumplir sus SLA de disponibilidad de datos no estructurados, independientemente de la tecnología que elige para almacenar y gestionar estos activos de su negocio.
Like many organisations, Prudential has to ensure it protects sensitive data. Getting it right results in satisfied customers, regulators and shareholders and avoids the reputational damage and legal penalties associated with a data breach. With the forthcoming EU General Data Protection Regulation now agreed for implementation, we think now is the right time for organisations to review their data governance and protection requirements. During this webinar we will cover today’s challenges in ensuring good data governance and enter into a panel discussion with Prudential about their approach and lessons learned, including their implementation of Symantec Data Loss Prevention and Boldon James data classification technology. There will also be an opportunity to engage in a Question and Answer session.
So if you want to give your data governance program a head start, register today.
High Availability doesn’t trump Disaster Recovery and there is nothing simple about creating a recovery capability for your business – unless you have a set of data protection and business continuity services that can be applied intelligently to your workload, managed centrally, and tested non-disruptively. The good news is that developing such a capability, which traditionally required the challenge of selecting among multiple point product solutions then struggling to fit them into a coherent disaster prevention and recovery framework, just got a lot easier.
Join us and learn how DataCore’s Software-Defined Storage platform provides the tools you need and a service management methodology you require to build a fully functional recovery strategy at a cost you can afford.
Most businesses have near zero tolerance for service outages and disruptions, regardless of the cause. How do Business Continuity professionals demonstrate a positive ROI for applications while meeting always-on expectations? In an operationally always-on world, business communications must be real-time with rapid response to outages to keep your business running. To achieve this level of Operational Resiliency, you must implement automated communications that eliminate breakdown during a crisis event or disruption. Join this webinar to learn about the latest technologies that you can use today to automate communications for real-time incident and crisis management, regardless of the channel. Are you ready to respond to your next disruption?
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.
There is a saying that "the cobbler's children are the last to get shoes". As BCM professionals we ensure that other business functions continue to have the tools to do their jobs whilst we go without. Yet failures in resilience cost organisations dearly – both in direct costs and as the result of reputational impact. But with increasingly complex and integrated systems, monitoring of risk mitigation and response can be costly. Incidents affecting business and IT operations are daily occurrences, often escalating into critical events, without proper management and communications. How can we improve efficiency and provision whilst staying within financial constraints? This webinar, explores these topics.
A resilient organization is adaptive, agile and robust – harnessing experience and embracing opportunity to pass the test of time. Does your business continuity strategy support you in achieving this? David Hitchen will look at the initial value from implementing business continuity - and explore the longer term benefits of a strategy that supports your organization in being truly resilient.
Risk and business continuity management are often regarded as 'grudge' compliance purchases or appointments – there are many truths in this negative feeling and perception for a lot of organisations. This presentation will look at how we should approach risk and business continuity management to ensure it adds to the overall business resilience of our organisations and will unpack the value of resiliency.
Business continuity professionals often face the challenge of demonstrating the value of business continuity in their organisation. Join our panel of BC professionals and subject matter experts as they discuss how a unified critical communications platform can derive additional value. This webinar will cover topics such as crisis event management, unplanned IT outages, business communications, information and physical security, data breaches and more. It will also demonstrate how these activities can raise the profile of the business continuity team.

Business Continuity Management insourcing does seem to many organisations as more advantageous and many do believe insourcing will also provide them with a cost saving. There are, however, some significant pitfalls as well as many unquantified costs over the long term. This webinar will cover the pitfalls that many organisations do not take into consideration when insourcing BCM.
From a business continuity perspective, the value in ITSC is straightforward. But what about the 'hidden' or less obvious benefits to IT departments and the business, in undertaking comprehensive ITSC planning?

A successful BCMS stands and falls with the right choice of strategy options for a worst-case scenario. Each scenario has a variety of strategy options, but which one is the correct choice? Based on practical examples the webinar shows the importance of threat assessments as a filter for choosing the right strategy.
The threat of cyber attacks and data breaches continues to grow, as do the associated costs. As your business moves to cloud-based technologies and enables business processes for mobile and the Internet of Things (IOT) you introduce new risks. Leveraging BCM in preparing and responding to a cyber event produces real value to the business.
Learn how BCM can be a key factor in responding effectively to cyber security attacks and reducing the cost and time to respond.
Understand the true costs a data breach might incur and the potential savings BCM can offer.
Get the evidence needed to create a strong business case for integrating business continuity and security in the fight against cyber crime.
A demonstrable ability to survive and recover from major disruptive events has become one of the most important success aspect of any business continuity management programme. Measuring the organisation's BCM maturity is essential as the results are highly useful, both as a measure for BCM capability, and as a decision-making facilitator regarding areas in need of greater attention in order to improve BCM maturity. It is therefore a model which addresses the need by management to assess the effectiveness of their programmes, as well as optimise their BCM spend.

At the BCI World Conference in November, the Business Continuity Institute, supported by Zurich Insurance Group, launched their annual Supply Chain Resilience Report. This webinar is a presentation of some of the key findings of the report. This includes that nearly one in ten organizations are not aware of who their key suppliers are, leaving them open to severe disruption as they are unable to manage their supply chain effectively.
The Business Continuity Institute's latest research report - the Emergency Communication Report, supported by Everbridge - was published in early December, and this webinar is a presentation of some of the key findings.
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.
The Business Continuity Institute (BCI) was established in 1994 to enable individual members to obtain guidance and support from fellow business continuity practitioners. The BCI currently has over 7,000 members in more than 100 countries.
