ACP November Webinar: 

Breaking Down Siloes

Presented by ACP Sponsor FusionRM

Date: Wednesday, November 20
Time: 11:00 AM Eastern; 10:00 AM Central
Presenter: Lynn James, CBCP Senior Advisory Consultant Fusion Risk Management
Register here.

Siloes: they are the bane of organizational resiliency and efficiency, but they are notoriously hard to tear down. Departments that focus on business continuity, IT, disaster recovery, third-party management, and incident management all tend to function independently of one another, even though the intersection of their responsibilities is where organizational resiliency and efficiency live.

This siloed approach to business operations results in duplicative work, gaps in addressing risk, and lack of optimization. However, business continuity is uniquely positioned to destroy departmental siloes and improve the alignment of these various functional areas. Join us for the webinar to discuss how creating and sharing the benefits of an all-encompassing information foundation can lead to your success.

  • New Lessons from California’s Wildfires
    By David GeringMember, ACP Los Angeles Chapter As continuity planning and resilience professionals, it may be easy to become blasé about the many natural disasters that occur with seemingly increasing frequency. However, it would be unwise to assume nothing new may be learned and applied in both our professional and personal lives. As I write this on Friday, November 16, 2018, authorities are searching for over 600 people missing and feared dead as a result of the Camp Fire in Northern California. More than 20,000 evacuated from a town that was reduced to smoking rubble in hours. And then ...
