    We all know that business continuity plans are critical for preparedness, but how effective are they if you are not testing and exercising them properly? Without a thorough understanding of the core pillars of a testing and exercising program, teams will be left reactive and caught off-guard. Testing and exercising business continuity plans plays a crucial role in assessing an organization’s readiness to navigate a crisis, no matter what happens. Join Fusion Principal Product Manager Sean McLaughlin on July 17th at 12PM CT to hear best practices and practical guidance on how to effectively test and exercise business continuity plans to ensure your organization is prepared and minimize the impact of disruptions.


    Key topics this webinar will cover:

    1. The Importance of Testing and Exercising: Understand why testing and exercising business continuity plans is essential for identifying gaps, validating strategies, and building confidence in your organization's ability to respond to disruptions.

    2. Types of Tests and Exercises: Explore different types of tests and exercises, such as tabletop exercises and functional exercises, and learn when to use each approach based on your organization's needs and objectives.

    3. Roles and Responsibilities: Understand the importance of clearly defining roles and responsibilities for participants, support personnel, and observers during testing and exercising. Get recommendations on how to effectively communicate and coordinate actions across teams to maximize the value of the exercises.

    4. Evaluating Test Results: Learn how to evaluate test results, identify gaps and deficiencies, and update business continuity plans accordingly. Discover best practices for reporting results to the board or designated committees.

    Make sure your organization is ready to effectively navigate disruption end-to-end. Register today to gain insights and practical strategies that will bolster your organization’s business continuity plans and minimize the impact on operations.

    As a continuity professional, you’re always looking out for someone else. 

    But who’s looking out for you? 
    Life is not a dresser drawer, with compartments to keep things neat and tidy.
    Often problems come in clusters, and one thing aggravates the other. 
    You need a reliable framework to win. 
    In this interactive talk on Personal Resilience, Kareen K. will share some of her most effective ways to get through challenges in life and business.  All attendees will receive a free download to inspire them to consistently make themselves available for their own life. 
    Kareen Kircher is a seasoned professional with more than two decades of technology, business, and nonprofit experience. Her technology consulting work in the past 10 years and speaking engagements have taken her across the country, as well as overseas. She has been a speaker for Salesforce, The Business Continuity Institute, and AppDynamics. 
    She’s the author of Waking Up From Your Parents’ American Dream, published in 2018. Kareen founded the Annual Celebration of Haitian Heritage Month, a fundraiser that has awarded 23 scholarships in the last 8 years. The fundraiser also helps students in Haiti to grow their love of learning. 
    Kareen cherishes life with her husband Christian, their indoor and feral fur babies, and other loved ones.
    ​Most importantly, Kareen creates dedicated time for her own personal resilience.
