Business Continuity Management - could your organisation survive a disaster?
BCM plans are now common, however certain questions need to be answered to ensure they are fit for purpose.
- Are they robust and current enough to deal with the latest risks?
- Have they been tested?
- What can you learn from rehearsals/exercises?
- Are they suitable?
- What about external risks in the supply chain?
The BCM adage "You can replace your buildings and your hardware, but it is less easy to rebuild your reputation" is more relevant than ever. Alan Elwood from R2 Risk & Resilience in a very informative and open session will cover:-
- The BCM Standard 22301
- The importance of good governance
- Influencing insurance cover and costs
- Analysis and focusing on what is critical
- Ensuring your plan matches your recovery priorities
- Planning right across your organisation
- Sustaining/improving your capability
- Reputation and media management
