Designing Enterprise Resilience with Integrative Neuroscience and Collective Impact Programming

Speaker:
Dr. Heidi Hanna, American Institute of Stress

Speaker Spotlight

Dr. Heidi Hanna

Crisis management depends on much more than a plan. It requires training that implements both the proactive and reactive navigation of our most valuable resources, including human capital. Training brain health and fitness throughout the organization not only optimizes performance and productivity in real-time, it also develops the cognitive and emotional flexibility necessary to respond rather than react in times of disaster or disruption. Participants will understand the integrative neuroscience framework of brain performance; recognize the impact of stress on brain function and the difference between reactions and responses; explore specific training exercises that enhance cognitive and emotional resilience; discuss unique strategies for incorporating brain training initiatives across all business units; and create a customized action plan for engaging their organization in the most impactful training program for their unique culture, values, and mission.

Understanding the sources of security breaches, how attackers gather information, and the phases of a data breach are the first steps to protecting against security breaches. This workshop explores how to develop and enforce strong information security policies and how to protect the IT infrastructure and information. Objectives are to: describe the importance of developing and enforcing strong IT security policies; identify the different sources for security breaches; understand why it is critical for organizations to focus on infrastructure protection and the key elements that define protection of the infrastructure. This workshop is one of the eight competencies from ICOR’s Critical Environment Technology Professional certification course.

Sunday Workshop Session 5

Multiple Event Mock Exercise!

Sunday, March 24, 2019
1:00 p.m. – 3:30 p.m.

Speaker:
Dr. Steven B. Goldman, MIT

Speaker Spotlight

Dr. Steven B. Goldman

This mock exercise is different! We will simulate several events:

  • workplace violence event
  • cyber security assault
  • fake news attack

Participants will divide into organization responders or exercise facilitators. Responders will first deal with a workplace violence event. Invited police department representatives will respond and advise the crisis team. It’s a bad day at the office because the organization then undergoes a cyber security assault. All the while, social and news media are tracking your response and offering their advice. The organization will then develop a recovery strategy based on your response.

Finally, we will conduct a media briefing on the response. Everyone will participate in the media briefing because you, yes YOU, are the reporters! The simulation will conclude with videos of:

  • media coverage of an actual workplace violence event
  • Department of Homeland Security guidance on workplace violence events
  • a good fire drill gone bad

During this fast-paced and highly interactive event, you will exercise the principles of workplace violence response, cyber event response, business continuity, disaster recovery, and crisis communications. Under Goldman’s experienced guidance, participants will develop response strategies, and then learn if they work. Test your knowledge, compare your company’s response plans, and have some fun while learning.
