ACP November Webinar:
Breaking Down Siloes
Presented by ACP Sponsor FusionRM
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.
