Let the Business Continuity Exercises Begin - Preparing for the Olympics


Many organisations are unaware of the negative impacts that the 2012 Olympic Games, and the large influx of foreign visitors that come along with the event, can have on UK-based businesses. With less than 300 days left until the games, the government is strongly urging organisations to reassess their business continuity policies. Maintaining resiliency during large events can be difficult, but gaining a firm understanding on what the risks are is the first step to successfully minimizing disruptions.

Join Send Word Now and our featured speaker, Justin Crump, CEO of Sibylline Ltd and Editor, CSARN Security Risk Monitor, to learn about:

  • The real nature of the security threats from the London 2012 Olympics

  • What every business continuity planner and security professional should know about preparing for a large-scale event

  • How the UK plans to mitigate risks

  • Why effective communications should play a critical role in your preparedness plan

Revolutionizing Disaster Recovery: From Hours to Minutes

Live Webinar - Tuesday, December 13, 2011, 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM EST

Disasters can strike at any time whether they're natural or man made - hardware failures, power outages, flooding, human error, bioterrorism. Minutes, hours, days without data costs companies millions. What is your cost of downtime?

When a major piece of infrastructure fails, recovery is no easy task. How well prepared are you to recover from a disaster? How quickly can you actually get your organization back up and running with end users having access to their critical data?

Fortunately, advanced data protection strategies have evolved that guarantee an RTO of minutes, not hours or days - so you no longer have to tell your end users that things 'might be working' in 24 to 72 hours.

Join us in a webcast where we highlight the elements of the next-generation disaster recovery solution that delivers an RPO as short as 1 minute.

Informational Update For December 1, 2011



The International Standards Organization (ISO) is developing the first-ever global business continuity standard, known as ISO 22301. The standard will be published in Q2 of 2012, but what should you do right now to get your organization ready? What does this mean for your organization's international and US-based business operations? Could certification be a competitive advantage?

Download this new Everbridge whitepaper by Dave Austin, ISO 22301 Project Team Leader.

ISO 22301 will require the adoption of current best practices, including:

  • Identifying business activities that must be resumed following a disruptive incident, through the process known as business impact analysis;

  • Identifying the risks that the organization faces that may lead to a disruptive incident;

  • defining the business continuity strategy;

  • Implementing the business continuity solutions, including defining and incident response structure, warning and communication and writing appropriate business continuity plans.

ISO 22301 certification offers objective assurance to management, customers, regulators, suppliers, partners and other interested parties that your organization has implemented good practice business continuity - and will emerge as a requirement of doing business in many countries.
