Organizations today face inevitable disruptions but are not prepared to deal with the wide variety of events. Most companies have business continuity and disaster recovery programs today but are managing their programs using hard copy plans and generating printed reports that are quickly outdated, and are not positioned to keep up with the changes. In a typical organization, there are also many separate processes, groups, functions and approaches that have something to do with "organizational resiliency." These include IT disaster recovery, business recovery, incident management and crisis management, as well as related risk and compliance functions. However, too many of the functions that tackle these issues are separate and uncoordinated, and often downright antagonistic.
Patrick Potter, GRC Strategist, RSA, The Security Division of EMC, will discuss:
- The challenges and how to bring these disparate teams together
- Prioritize business elements, holistic approaches and collaboration to transition from recovery to resiliency
- How to move from managing your programs through hard copy documents and shift that balance to automated tools and processes
- Steps to prepare now for the inevitable and develop a strategy for resiliency
Maximize the effectiveness of your IT staff and infrastructure resources-and keep your business up and running.
