Informational Update For August 15, 2012

Preparing for the Convergence of Business Continuity and Risk Management

Wednesday, September 5, 2012 - 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM EDT

Keep pace with the escalating demands being placed upon BC and RM professionals. Join us for a “Power Hour” review of risk management principles, challenges, and opportunities, and come away with a comprehensive perspective on big picture trends, current practices, and tangible tools for utilizing them:

  • BC/RM convergence - The lines between BC and RM are merging into a single practice area. Understand how to set-up your program strategy to expand your organization’s focus from “BC Planner” to “Strategic Risk Manager.”

  • Industry status - See what’s happening now, and how it affects you and your organization.

  • Applying RM standards, best practices and frameworks - Harness the power of established standards into your program.

Learn how to stay ahead of the curve, by bridging the gap between concept and practice with a strategy that satisfies the needs of multiple business and regulatory constituents. Reserve your time for “Preparing for the Convergence of BC and RM” today.

Presented by Frank Perlmutter, co-founder of Strategic BCP® and ResilienceONE® BCM software, and a nationally recognized speaker who draws upon more than 15 years of BCM experience, including his role as Manager of Disaster Recovery/Continuity of Operations Planning for the U.S. Department of the Treasury.
