Why start from scratch every time you need to exercise? We have developed 9 impact based scenarios that can be used individually or in combination to create many other scenarios. As standalone exercises, each is about 45 minutes in length. These scenarios are higher level and can be used as exercises or brainstorming for groups that have not yet fully developed their plans. All scenarios will be provided to DRJ attendees.

Read interview with speaker

Michael Quam

Having moved into the corporate world last year and starting a global BCM from essentially scratch has been a challenging and interesting experience. My team spent this year launching new software, writing scopes, getting buy in, and rolling these out to MFG and Non MFG sites in a fast paced and challenging environment of a Fortune 500 company.

For this presentation, I will provide challenges that I’ve had getting buy in, launching a new software, scoping sites, conducting a BIA, creating CM exercises, and much more. Once I’ve presented these challenges, I will discuss the plans I put into place the second year to repair these bridges and create a strong BCM and CM program for the next fiscal year.

In conclusion, I will present my “Three Tier’s of BCM” for a Global Program.

Anya Fleischer

Have you considered implementing an emergency notification system (ENS) at your company? Communication is critical, and having a robust ENS can significantly help your organization succeed in a time of incident or crisis. However, given the multitude of vendors and options, it’s easy to get overwhelmed with the process. We will discuss what to look for in a solution, defining the optimized business requirements and ultimately determining the right fit for your company. In this session, we will explore building a business case and a road-map for implementation; which includes your key stakeholders and partners, system integration strategies, legal considerations, global and cultural perspectives, creating buy-in, and other critical requirements for a value-added ENS. Attendees will leave the session with a checklist that they can use to start their own brainstorming process.

Breakout Track 2 – Session 5

How to Reach BC Maturity Using Physical Fitness Principles

When:
Monday, March 26, 2018
2:45 – 3:45 p.m.

Speaker:
Mark Carroll, Income Research
Steven O’Neal, Rentsys Recovery Services

Mark Carroll Steve O’Neal

When it comes to being resilient, the business enterprise functions as an organism, much like the human body. Just as people often develop unrealistic expectations of their bodies while working toward physical health, corporate management tends to develop an extreme idea of what a business continuity (BC) program should look like. The result is that you, as the BC planner, feel the need to take your recovery program to extreme levels, often at the expense of other business initiatives. However, a doctor doesn’t care if you look like a bodybuilder; they want you to be healthy. Similarly, auditors and regulators don’t care if your BC plan is perfect; they want your business to have an effective, tested program.

There is no perfect regimen for a healthy lifestyle, and there is no perfect BC template. A healthy lifestyle requires a proper balance of sleep, diet, exercise, medical attention, etc. In the same way, an effective BC plan should balance ongoing business needs, enterprise risk management, continued resilience and recovery. This presentation will discuss strategies for integrating these elements and for identifying benchmarks that indicate you’re heading in the right direction.
