Breakout Track 3 – Session 1

BC/DR in context to CSIRP

Monday, March 25, 2019
4:15 p.m. – 5:15 p.m.

Ramesh Warrier, eBRP

A data breach. The threat causing many sleepless nights for senior executives. Most organizations have adopted strategies to reduce their vulnerabilities and, at the same time, created computer security incident response plans (CSIRPs) in the event of an incident.

During a cybersecurity incident, your CSIRP may invoke your crisis management, disaster recovery (or IT service continuity), and business continuity plans. In this scenario, do your business continuity and disaster recovery plans support the demands of CISRP?

In this session, eBRP subject matter experts discuss enhancements to the traditional business continuity and disaster recovery planning efforts to enable adaptive, flexible, and efficient response to security breaches. Automating workflow facilitates seamless collaboration plus the ability to monitor, measure, and manage activities that are critical to effective incident response.

Breakout Track 3 – Session 2

Time for a Health Check! Ensuring Your Notification System and Processes are Efficient, Effective, and ‘Crisis Ready’

Monday, March 25, 2019
4:15 p.m. – 5:15 p.m.

Kelly Williams, OnSolve

Business continuity is not only threatened by the emergency event or disaster itself, but by the ability of your organization to communicate quickly, accurately, and effectively with employees, customers, and other stakeholders. As professionals in business continuity, crisis communications are an important part of our knowledge base, preparation, and training. Most companies utilize automated notification software tools to communicate with their people during a crisis event and to manage critical next steps. This session will zero in on the most common problems when the software tool you’re using – whether professionally developed for the enterprise or home grown – do not work as planned. People aren’t answering their phones! Nobody is responding! Or the administrators have other problems: groups have been deleted, or the wrong notification was sent (as witnessed with the Hawaii emergency alert false alarm). If employee notification or crisis response falls into your area of responsibility, it’s time for a health check. Learn key strategies for ensuring your notification system and processes are efficient, effective, and “crisis ready.”

Few organizations today operate without the assistance of other businesses that help them be more successful. Whether you rely on external payroll, Internet, or security services to help grow your bottom line, your business depends on these solutions to stay operational every day. You’ve built your BC program and evaluated your vendors’ ability to recover, but have you assessed critical vendors for items such as information security, SLA performance, and more?

Beyond risk assessment, vendor risk and contingency management (VRCM) sits at the intersection of BCM and VRM activities, focusing on where vendors’ products and services are utilized by an organization’s processes and systems.
Join us for this insightful presentation to find out how to align business continuity management and vendor risk management to improve resilience and enable fast recovery from critical incidents.
