Tragic headlines, graphic footage, survivor accounts, specialized training, legal precedence and now the NFPA 3000 Provisional Standard for ASHER. Organizations must evolve this complex conversation while answering;

1) is our plan inclusive and informed with perspectives from law enforcement and EMS?
2) will anything more than awareness training incite employee fear?
3) how can we best prepare individuals confronted with an attacker?

This presentation reviews various perspectives while seeking answers to those questions and a balanced approach to preparedness.

Presented by Jay Williams. Mr Williams is a Vice President in Enterprise Security for M&T Bank. He has 11 years of experience with disaster and business recovery planning, corporate emergency response and third-party due diligence. Jay is a veteran of the U.S. Army where he worked in early warning systems management. He is the current chapter President for the Eastern Great Lakes ACP and values the opportunity to fortify communities through unified planning and preparedness initiatives.

  • What are the risks that insurance helps mitigate and the categories of business insurance?

  • What is the role of insurance in disaster/business recovery?

To develop a strong BCDR strategy, you start with the facts. A business impact analysis is, at its heart, a fact-finding mission. In the event of downtime, what would happen to your company? Do the BIA right and you’ll come to a deeper, more realistic understanding of your company’s current state of operations—and pave the way for creating a recovery strategy that actually works. Do it wrong and you’ll overwhelm your participants, alienate your IT department, confuse your senior management team, and – worst of all – devise recovery strategies, solutions and plans that won’t recover your business.

Join our webinar, where we will discuss 10 ways to avoid making your BIA a disaster. Attendees will walk away with practical advice and strategies like:

How to validate your BIA approach with senior management
How to build the right questionnaires to get to the right information
Who to involve in the BIA process and why
And more…

As the old saying goes, “If the only tool you have is a hammer, everything looks like a nail”. Where did this saying originate and what does it refer to? The phrase is commonly referred to as Maslow’s Hammer and attributed to the famous psychologist of the 20th century, Abraham Maslow. How applicable is this to us as Enterprise Risk Management Professionals? What did Maslow teach us that is useful in this day and age? Are there other Maslow teachings that apply to the risk discipline overall and the expanding or evolving risk landscape in particular (e.g., cyber)? There are, and it comes solidly in the form of Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs – a developmental psychology that has strong applicability to our world as risk practitioners.

This presentation will focus on Enterprise Risk Management (ERM) holistically, with a focus on the need to approach risk management with the proper balance across the various risk disciplines within the organization, leveraging Maslow, and with an emphasis on cyber risk. Without question, risk in the cyber space has been on the front burner for quite a while now. It is irresponsible as a risk professional in this day and age to not have the cyber landscape and specifically cyber threats on your first-level radar and we will examine this risk through a whole different lens.

Enterprises are facing the pressure of growing data volumes, compliance requirements tied to disaster recovery and the increasing likelihood of catastrophic natural disasters. Whether it’s data vaulting and recovery or alternate workspace, more businesses are reaping the economical and operational benefits of outsourced disaster recovery. But the public cloud is changing things.

It’s transforming the disaster recovery landscape. It’s segmenting the colocation market. It’s driving the rise of work-from-home. Do these changes mean traditional solutions like colocation and dedicated workspace recovery facilities are no longer the best options?

Join this webinar to find out. The session will be presented by Jim Olson, director of data center sales for Iron Mountain Data Centers, and Brandon Tanner, senior manager for Rentsys Recovery Services.

A successful business continuity management program helps organizations recover from events that have the ability to threaten the entire enterprise. In today’s environment a major cyber attack or breach is at the top of the list. So why do business continuity and cybersecurity continue to be managed in separate silos? Recovery in isolation leads to failure.

Join us for this webinar to hear Christopher Duffy, CISSP detail how the merger of these two groups can create successful recovery strategies, and how to affect this change in your organization.

Weather impacts every type of business. From decisions about keeping staff and customers safe, to making sure your supply chain doesn’t break, business continuity depends on being prepared for adverse weather. Extreme weather events and natural disasters are ranked in the top three threats to business continuity yet they are among the most predictable threats. Last year in the U.S. losses due to weather and climate disaster events totaled more than $300 billion. Building resilience to severe weather threats is top-of-mind for every continuity professional or risk manager and today’s advanced weather management tools provide earlier warnings, better forecasts and the data you need to be proactive rather than reactive.

Join John Liuzzi, National Director of Business Continuity at Southern Glazer’s Wine & Spirits and Earth Networks Meteorologist Steve Prinzivalli to learn best practices and strategies for dealing with thunderstorms, tornadoes, high winds, snow and ice and other types of severe weather of concern to business continuity pros. Find out what weather challenges Southern Glazer’s Wine & Spirits faces and how they handle each one.
