Hi [[ session.user.profile.firstName ]]

Burst out of you own personal silo, Find out who else is interested in disasters

When looking for help to deal with the problems arising from disasters we turn to our trade associations and other groups that we know. However, many of us can become siloed with a group of people who think just like us, almost by default.

Canada has a large number of organizations over many different disciplines dedicated to planning for and dealing with disasters. This webinar will let you know who else may be out there, what you can learn from them, how they relate to you. It provides a practical way to start to bust out of your own personal silo.

  • Business continuity requires a security architecture to reduce risk and cost Sep 26 2016 2:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Jeff Primus AMBCI (Actagis)
    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.
  • CPD – making it up as I went along Sep 21 2016 2:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Patrick Roberts MBCI
    Patrick Roberts is a Director of Cambridge Risk Solutions Ltd and has been an MBCI since 2007. In this webinar he looks back at some of his CPD activities over the last ten years, ranging from courses and conferences to books and journals. Although CPD within the BCI is now much more structured, and many more courses are available; he argues that some of the avenues that he has pursued may still be of value to future generations of business continuity practitioners.
  • Business continuity awareness: Lessons from potty training Sep 20 2016 2:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Helen Molyneux MBCI
    Increasing business continuity awareness often focuses on posters and newsletter campaigns, and ensuring that staff know where the policy and plans are kept. However, ISO 22301 requires that awareness includes staff understanding ‘their contribution to the effectiveness of the BCMS’, not just the plan. This presentation will consider a broader approach to awareness within an organisation, considering approaches to make all aspects of a BCMS second nature, and an integral part of business as usual.
  • Integrating the 'pieces' of incident management in your organization Sep 15 2016 10:00 am UTC 60 mins
    Kathleen Lucey FBCI
    How we got to where we are, and what you need now to manage your recovery from all kinds of incidents, including cyber attacks. It's not the same old business continuity or disaster recovery anymore!
  • Exercising your continuity plan Sep 5 2016 2:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Barbro Thöyrä MBCI
    Exercising is vital in order to keep your continuity plan and staff up-to date.
    We will talk more about why it is important to exercise and what the useful prerequisite are to exercise.
    There are several types of exercises and I will high light some of them and how to conduct an exercise.
  • Changing global threats - how they impact the business continuity professional Recorded: Jul 26 2016 48 mins
    Brian Zawada FBCI & John Jackson Hon. FBCI
    The 2016 BCI Horizon Scan, supported by important studies such as the 2016 Allianz Risk Barometer, the World Economic Forum Global Risks Report and the BCI Supply Chain Resilience Report paint a picture of increasing and ever evolving threats to our organizations and the world we live in.

    This webinar explores those threats and trends and provides conclusions and key takeaways that shape how we all, as business continuity professionals, need to adjust our focus and initiatives to prepare and respond to the evolving environment we all live in.

    Join Brian Zawada and 20/20 white paper Author John Jackson for a compelling look at how our roles will change in the years ahead.
  • The lessons from the 2016 BCI Cyber Resilience Survey Recorded: Jul 21 2016 60 mins
    Patrick Alcantara DBCI (The BCI) & Sonny Sehgal (Transputec)
    The results of the 2016 Cyber Resilience Survey confirm much of what we already suspected about the changing nature of the cyber threat and the way that cyber criminals have found new ways past corporate perimeter security. The increased difficulty of breaching perimeter security and the increased human resources available to cyber criminals has combined to produce a new point of attack. This is focused on the weakest link in the corporate security chain, which is now human beings rather than technology. The research shows clearly that phishing and social engineering is now the single top cause of cyber disruption, with over 60% of companies reporting being hit by such an incident over the past 12 months.

    In this webinar, we will be looking at some of the findings from the study, and discussing what actions organizations can take to help improve their cyber resilience.
  • Resiliency Response & Comms: Your first-line of defense against a disruption Recorded: May 20 2016 64 mins
    Margaret Mills (IBM)
    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?
  • Effective crisis communication techniques to avoid a reputation train wreck Recorded: May 20 2016 61 mins
    Caroline Sapriel (CS&A International)
    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
  • Changing your BCMS from a cost of doing business to a business improvement tool Recorded: May 19 2016 35 mins
    John DiMaria (BSI)
    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? Recorded: May 19 2016 50 mins
    Patrick Alcantara DBCI & Andrew Scott CBCI (BCI)
    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.
  • How DRaaS brings IT availability Recorded: May 19 2016 36 mins
    Trent Odgers
    Predictions show that there will be almost 21 billion connected devices by the end of 2020. The need to deliver 24/7 access to data and applications has never been more critical. Companies want to ensure business continuity and thus cope with the new demands of their customers and employees to remain competitive today. Organizations must innovate by quickly providing IT services for their teams, enhancing security and control, reducing operating costs and increasing flexibility. To meet these parameters, companies are implementing highly virtualized modern data centers by investing in modern technologies such as virtualization, storage and the Cloud.
  • Creating efficiencies through a ‘top-down’ approach to business continuity Recorded: May 19 2016 59 mins
    Neil Bourke & Lucy Jones (Deloitte)
    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.
  • Improving the efficiency of resilience mitigation & response Recorded: May 18 2016 60 mins
    Tony Perry (IBM)
    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.
  • Organizational resilience and ROI from your business continuity activities Recorded: May 18 2016 35 mins
    Dr David Hitchen CBCI (BSI)
    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 – adding value or just ticking boxes? Recorded: May 18 2016 46 mins
    Junita van der Colff (ContinuitySA)
    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.
  • The power of unified communications in driving return on investment Recorded: May 17 2016 63 mins
    Andrew Woods MBCI (Everbridge)
    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.
  • Visible return on investment with business continuity management tools Recorded: May 17 2016 37 mins
    Jon Mitchell (ClearView Continuity)
    In this webinar, Jon Mitchell of ClearView Continuity will look at some of the typical challenges with evidencing tangible return on investment for business continuity and look at the ClearView ROI tool, which has been used successfully with a number of clients to formulate a business case for BCM software.
  • Designing and delivering effective tabletop exercises Recorded: May 17 2016 61 mins
    Kathleen Lucey FBCI (Montague Risk Management) & Rob Burton (PreparedEx)
    How do you design a tabletop exercise and what benefit do they provide your organization? In this webinar you will learn how to set proper objectives for what you are trying to achieve, develop a realistic storyline and then host an effective exercise to ensure that your business continuity programme is fit for purpose.
  • Business Continuity Management - insourcing versus outsourcing Recorded: May 17 2016 42 mins
    Willem Olivier (ContinuitySA)
    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.
Promoting the art and science of BCM Worldwide
