Breakout Track 3 – Session 1

Leveraging your BCM Program in Cyber-Security Incident Response

Monday, September 24, 2018
4:15 p.m. – 5:15 p.m.

Ramesh Warrier, eBRP

Ramesh Warrier

The immediate reaction to a cyber-security incident is the FUD factor (Fear, Uncertainty and Doubt); more like ‘chickens running around with their head cut off’. In the event of a data breach the RTO goes ‘out of the window’ and response is based on RTO=0.

An agile response requires tested and documented Incident Response Plans – including Crisis Management, Business Continuity and IT Disaster Recovery Plans. Automating the workflow facilitates seamless collaboration and the ability to Monitor, Measure & Manage the activities that are critical to effective Incident Response.

In this presentation, learn about the various program components that will help in building an effective Incident Response.

Smoke Gets In your Eyes: The San Clemente Wildfires

Monday, September 24, 2018
4:15 p.m. – 5:15 p.m.

Kevin Massey, Glaukos Corporation

Kevin Massey

In late June 2017 a Southern California wildfire covered over a thousand acres in San Clemente, California. The fires were encroaching a commercial business park so rapidly that local Police and Fire would not allow any employees to enter the business park, blocking access to the Glaukos Headquarters. Over the next 42 hours the road was blocked, and no access was allowed. For 67 hours, production & shipment capabilities were halted.

Some employees braved the fire and smoke to walk in and retrieve their lap tops. There was no damage to the building but this “near miss” caused the leadership to recognize the urgency of implementing a Business Continuity Plan.

This session will describe the events surrounding the fire, the business exposure, the health and safety exposures and the plans that have since been put in place.

Speaker Spotlight

Terence Lee Jay Geppert

Every day, Business Continuity professionals are pulled deeper into the process of vendor risk assessments. Traditionally, they have been asked to conduct vendor risk assessments specific to BC and DR capabilities. However, many organizations are now looking to BC professionals to assess critical vendors for information security, SLA performance, and more. This change signals that Business Continuity Professionals are, in fact, key stakeholders in vendor risk management.

How do you know your vendors can continue to provide their products and services to your critical processes and systems during recovery? Attend this session to hear Jay Geppert, vice president, Operational Risk Management, explain how he addresses the VRCM challenge at PlainsCapital Bank. Co-presented by Terry Lee, vice president, product strategy, Strategic BCP.
