Resilience Dividend -

Being prepared before a crisis happens

Creating a culture of preparedness begins with business continuity planning and preparation. This includes identifying mission critical functions, understanding the risk/threat towards those functions, tearing down silos within the organization to create a planning environment where all sides are communicating their existing strategies and controls, and existing incident response procedures to understanding the impact if threats occur.  Preparing is difficult because nobody knows exactly what will happen in the future.  In the absence of a crystal ball, the best organizations can do is become more resilient. Resilience is the ability to bounce back quickly and grow from damage, failure, and disruption of any kind.

Below are highlights that will be discussed during this session:

  • The art of planning: Transition from reacting to responding to future incidents
  • Understand Resilience skills necessary to build a Business Continuity program
  • Clearly communicate expectations to all stake holders: Board members, employees, contractors, vendors and customers
  • Implementing Change Management: How it could save your company
  • Strategic planning: Business Continuity - The other side of Disaster Recovery
  • Securing your whole organization
