There are so many topics of importance to incorporate into your BCM / Operational Resilience program e.g., Third Party Risk Management, Cyber, Technology outages, and Staffing issues just to name a few. Are you having difficulties with ‘moving the dial’ within your organization or would you like to inquire about what other professionals have implemented? Tips and tricks? Let’s use the collective knowledge of the participants to help each other out! Bring your questions…and your answers…and above all, your participation. This is sure to be a very dynamic session!

Register now for an educational webinar on approaches to initiating and conducting a BIA based on best practices and practical experience.

Effective business continuity/disaster recovery programs are dependent upon the business priorities of the company. During this session, we will cover setting up your BIA to determine, assess and evaluate the potential effects of a business interruption to the organization’s critical business processes.
  • How do you know which business processes, 3rd party providers, and/or required technology are the most critical and how is critical being defined?
  • How do you create your impact measurements to be used in the BIA evaluation?
  • How can you leverage the results of the BIA to improve your program?

This webinar will be presented by Agility Recovery Vice President Monica Goldstein, CBCP, JD.
