In today’s volatile economic environment, BC / DR programs are being held accountable for delivering more strategic value with increasingly fewer resources. But achieving this objective is challenging—especially when practitioners continue to apply outdated industry approaches that create robust cycles of busy work for their organizations but fall distinctly short of delivering demonstrable value beyond compliance.
The time has come for BC / DR practitioners to switch up their playbooks and adopt a continuity risk focus that proactively addresses critical enterprise risks, and positions the practitioner to contribute innovative thought leadership toward building preparedness around the core capabilities that provide competitive advantage.
This seminar will address the following topics:
• How does “continuity risk” differ from traditional approaches to BC / DR?
• Why risk assessment only addresses the first important question
• Advanced risk modeling techniques
• Next generation metrics: beyond compliance
- How does
- How to apply advanced assessment / analytical frameworks
- Why risk assessment only addresses the first important question
