Cary Jasgur | Mazars USA

DRJ Fall 2019 | Tuesday, October 1, 2019 | Breakout Track 5, Session 5 | 9:30 a.m. – 10:30 a.m.

DRJ Fall 2019 attendees have the possibility to learn how ERM and OR work together to make a stronger organization. This comes from applying this knowledge across several organizations.

Cary Jasgur, manager of Organizational Resilience Mazars USA, will present “Utilizing an ERM Framework to Improve Your Organizational Resiliency Program.”

Jasgur, MBCP, MBCI, PMP, has been with Mazars for five years and in the business continuity and disaster recovery field for more than 25 years. He has also been a consultant for most of his career and has worked in the financial and travel industries, higher education, television, and banking. In addition, he was in the U.S. Navy.

“I kind of organically grew into the profession, starting out in IT,” he says. “My passion comes from knowing that I am truly making a difference in the resiliency of an organization.”

According to Jasgur, unacceptable risks surround every organization’s daily activities. Successfully managing risks can go a long way in assisting organizational planning. What if there was a methodology to help organizations better prepare and plan for those unforeseen risks? ERM is that methodology.

ERM allows for the identification of risks as a part of doing business. This interactive session evaluates how organizational resiliency supports ERM to enable business objectives. ERM allows for the identification and assessment of risks, the development of a proper response, policies, and procedures for addressing unplanned risks, communication, and monitoring activities. With the successful implementation of ERM, BC/DR professionals develop better plans, devise more accurate responses, and safeguard their organizations against planned and unplanned risks.

Jasgur says ERM and OR programs align by using twin risk methodologists, from an overarching organizational lens rather than simply focusing on a particular vulnerability. Understanding the history and context of ERM helps to raise the bar for BC/DR professionals. This session enables that discussion and challenges the attendees with creating a common ground.

One interesting scenario Jasgur will share with DRJ attendees is where ERM and OR came together to make an organization more resilient.

“There is no correct way to establish a strong organizational resilience program, only the way that works best for your organization,” says Jasgur.

He will use an engaging presentation style with audience participation “with questions thrown in to keep the discussion moving along, with a little humor to take the edge off.”

“I tend to make eye contact with as many of the audience as possible,” says Jasguar. “This makes them feel like they are part of the experience, rather than passive listeners.”

Jasgur has a bachelor’s degree in technical management and dual Master of Science degrees in organizational leadership and project management.

He lives in Washington, D.C. and is an animal activist, world traveler and wine enthusiast.
