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.

By their nature, events are location-based. Office closures, inclement weather, an active shooter – these events all impact your people in specific areas. Emergency notification systems allow you to see your people and events on a map, providing valuable insight into a person’s proximity to danger. Today, security leaders can use various forms of location data to pinpoint audiences and distribute valuable information to the right people, in the right location, over any device.

In this webinar, you’ll learn how to:

Use your existing data to better communicate during a critical event
Begin collecting additional location data from new and currently available sources
Monitor for emergency events near your people and locations
Leverage employee schedules to avoid confusion and unnecessary communication
Use location to add value to other parts of your business

Picture this: An employee clicked on an email link that they thought was a reputable sender and now their computer is under a scammer’s control. Not only has their machine compromised but now your entire network has been infiltrated by the hacker.

This is not a ‘what if?’ scenario, it’s a ‘when will it happen?’. We all know that today’s employees are buried in email, spending time on social media and searching the internet – all applications scammers use to get your employees to click that dreaded link.

No matter how hard you work to keep them out, mistakes happen, employees get busy, distracted and sometimes careless. The next steps after an attack can be daunting and delicate to maneuver.

Do you know what to do after a cybersecurity incident strikes?

Join Andrew Baker, Virtual CIO, and DRJ on March 14, at 2:00 pm ET for “You’ve been Hacked… Now What? – Recovering from a Cybersecurity Attack”.

In this event, you will learn how to:

  • Manage and initiate incident response teams
  • Prepare for recovery efforts in advance
  • Manage the physical / digital impact of an incident
  • Communicate critical information before, during and after an incident
  • Manage the reputational impact of an incident
  • Learn from past mistakes and apply them to your plan

Whether you’ve experienced an incident or the mere thought of one keeps you awake at night, you’ll want to be a part of this online learning event.

Companies have learned that implementing all the risk management strategies in the world will not help them recover from a disruption if they have not integrated business continuity planning and exercising with risk management.

Market leaders in the industry, Terence Lee, Vice President of Product Strategy, Strategic BCP and John Ambra, Vice President Risk Product Strategy at SAI Global will show attendees:

With billion-dollar disasters expected to become the new normal, traditional business continuity threats are intensifying. As if that’s not challenging enough, business continuity and disaster recovery planners now have to plan for a slew of cybersecurity risks. The General Data Protection Regulation and the U.S. government’s growing focus on cybersecurity are forcing businesses to reconsider how they handle their data – and customers are holding executives personally accountable. Internet-based threats such as ransomware and phishing attacks continue to run rampant, and cybersecurity talent is increasingly difficult to come by.

Will 2018 hold more of the same? What risks and trends will develop? To find out, join this webinar presented by Michael Barrack, managing director for Accume Partners, and Eric Thompson, information security officer for Rentsys Recovery Services.
