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.

Organizations are being forced to adapt to the complexity of the current risk landscape at a rapid pace. While you’re focused on preparing for and managing one crisis, another is almost always lurking in the shadows. Over the last few years, we’ve learned that critical events can impact multiple departments within an organization, yet managing these risks is still being done in silos. A single threat can impact cyber and physical security, compliance and even human resources departments. Organizations need to reorganize their processes, workflow and structure to achieve organizational resilience. This is shift is expanding the traditional role of the business continuity leader and giving way to the introduction of the Chief Resilience Officer.

Join Matt Bradley, VP of Global Security Solutions at OnSolve as he reviews the impact of dynamic risk on organizations and exactly how the roles of the business continuity professional and chief resilience officer are evolving and developing.

Friday, April 15
3:30 pm Eastern | 2:30 pm Central | 1:30 pm Mountain | 12:30 pm Pacific

Join the Colorado Rocky Mountain Chapter for a virtual tour of the new Larimer County (CO) facility that is home to the newly established Emergency Operations Center. This center is critical for coordination during a large scale event, and has been many years in the making.

Speaker Shayle Sabo will also be reviewing the "resilience metrics" that are being established for Their program. Larimer County's Office of Emergency Management is unique in that they focus efforts and center them around resilience, but this can often be difficult to measure. It is also true that emergency management is not the "lead" in many areas that define community resilience, which makes this even more challenging to determine if OEM is making an impact in our area. These metrics are being developed, but will be tested over the next few years, and welcome discussion around them!

Where there is data, there is a risk of a data breach. It is essential to implement protective measures for such an event and to educate oneself to spot a potential breach.

While compliance leaders must have an abundance of technical prowess, truly successful compliance executives today are the ones that seamlessly blend hard with soft skills.

As a complex role that wears numerous hats, balancing both skill sets enable compliance personnel to get people at all levels (and in particular, major company stakeholders) on board with controls, procedures, and policies and strengthen their positioning as valuable and impactful players in the operations of an organization – not just ones that checks boxes.
