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

Mark W. Baker - Risk and Insurance Management, Business Continuity Consultant
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.

  • The risks and opportunities which digital technologies, devices and media bring us are manifest. Cyber risk is never a matter purely for the IT team, although they clearly play a vital role. An organisation's risk management function need a thorough understanding of the constantly evolving risks as well as the practical tools and techniques available to address them

  • As a business, concerns over RTO, RPO, costs, security, and data privacy have historically made the decision for cloud backup a complicated one. However, cloud technologies continue to evolve, and can now provide substantial cost benefits while overcoming the most stringent security, data privacy, storage and performance hurdles. This makes it a perfect fit for many backup needs — especially remote office server backup.

    In this session we’ll cover:

    * The state of the cloud and the latest advancements for D2C server backup
    * How security and data storage advancements are addressing key enterprise data privacy concerns
    * How to leverage the cloud for remote office server backup and archiving, while significantly lowering storage and administration expenses

  • BCI webinar: Best practices for DR test planning and implementation Mar 16 2015 6:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    One of the most important activities to address when developing a technology disaster recovery plan is the plan test. The primary mission of the test is to validate that the data backup/recovery, system failover/recovery and system failback/restoration procedures you have defined work correctly. These activities will help you fine-tune your DR plans more precisely, and will ensure that your recovery teams know their roles and responsibilities during and after a recovery. This webinar provides guidance on how to plan and execute a successful DR test.
  • BCI webinar: Simulating chaos to improve readiness Mar 16 2015 4:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Kathleen and Rob will discuss the benefits of injecting chaos / reality into various kinds of BC/DR exercises. Special attention will be paid to the development and and delivery of complex table-top exercises. They will also talk about how tabletop elements can enhance more traditional DR exercises by injecting realism into what are often extremely artificial events. Tabletop exercises are extremely useful for three reasons:

    - They exercise areas of disaster management not often covered in DR and BC testing.
    - They exercise those teams that are not often rehearsed together in realistic scenarios.
    - They teach loosely formed emergency teams how to work together efficiently and effectively under stressful emergency conditions.

    The benefits delivered to BCM programs through the use of tabletop exercises are extraordinary, but many practitioners do not yet have the necessary skills to design and execute them. This webinar will give the audience concrete tactics and techniques, as well as a defined methodology that will lead to tabletop successes.
  • BCI webinar: BCM: A key element in the fight against data breaches Mar 16 2015 2:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    The 2014 Cost of Data Breach Study, conducted by Ponemon Institute and sponsored by IBM, recently revealed that the costs associated with a data breach are rising. That, coupled with the increased prevalence and sophistication of attacks, might make you think there’s a cloudy forecast for data security.
    There is a silver lining, however, for organizations that want to limit the cost of these incidents; the study also showed that involving business continuity specialists in your security planning and having a continuity plan for your business can:
    - Lower the probability that you will experience a data breach
    - Reduce the follow-on impact of a data breach, should one occur
    - Help cut data breach costs by an average of $9 per compromised record, from $145 to $136
    Join this webcast to hear Paige Poore talk more about why a resiliency plan’s maturity, reach, and role in security planning are key factors in reducing the cost of a data breach and will share her insights based on case studies and experience working with organizations to integrate resiliency into their security planning.
  • BCI webinar: Why owning a pair of trainers does not mean you are fit Mar 16 2015 11:00 am UTC 60 mins

    - My trainers have gathered dust (My BCP is covered in dust and coffee stains)

    - It’s a long road, with hills and valleys and even a pothole or two (Exercising maturity and challenges along the way)
    - Committed to fit! (Exercising your BCP is a journey in maturity)

  • BCI webinar: Making the complicated simple Recorded: Oct 9 2014 51 mins
    Effective information management is becoming a key priority for many organisations in the area of business continuity. Managing golden data sources (people, resources, locations, processes etc), managing activities to support effective recovery, managing the information gathering process through risk assessment, BIA, Plans and Exercising, managing potential capability gaps and effective workflow.

    During webinar, Charles Boffin will to focus on how the origins of information management in the arena of IT disaster recovery have migrated to a fully-rounded business continuity proposition. From a focus on hardware and related applications availability with a relatively narrow agenda, we now have a proposition which encompasses all parts of the organisation, all touch points, all core data sources and all core processes.

    This change has meant change in practices in organisations too. And smart software underpins this. Software which

    - Co-ordinates and focus all data flows into a single point
    - Genuinely sits ‘pan-organisation’ in reach – one of the very few corporate areas that can make this claim. BC has to cross hierarchical silos in order to be effective.
    - Supports BC as both a strategic and an operational process i.e. from assessment through to practical application
    - Recognises that BC has the power to ‘make or break’ a business depending upon how effectively it is managed and executed
    - Supports key standards and governance – the business of the 21st Century.

    We will want to look at some of the practical applications of above, where we can show that information management using software is now becoming a norm. For those organisations who do not have this, there is a very real capability gap.
