Advanced Concepts in Business Continuity and Crisis Management [ASIS Webinar]

When:  Sep 1, 2021 from 15:00 to 16:00 (ET)

You've got a BC plan.  It's reviewed, tested, maintained and updated.  Maybe you've even got some metrics that you report.  That's great. But, have you asked yourself two critical questions:   In a crisis, am I recoverable? And, how do I deliver value absent a crisis?  

This presentation looks at the critical link between Business Continuity and Crisis Management and challenges the notion that traditional plans are equivalent to readiness.  Rather, I propose that security managers are in a unique position to drive value to their organization throughout a CM/BC planning process (not just at the end, or when something bad happens), and offer strategies for doing so.

  • Attendees will develop and understanding of Advanced Business Continuity Strategies and Concepts
