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.

According to PwC’s 2022 Global Digital Trust Insights Survey, cyber threats are now the number one risk to businesses in 2022. This was no doubt exacerbated by the pandemic, as the threat landscape and cybercrime continued to evolve while businesses transitioned to a more digital environment. At the same time, circumstances stemming from the pandemic have pushed many people out of the workforce to focus on personal and family issues, and women in particular exited the workplace at a higher rate than men.

To the inexperienced eye, football seems to have a lot of complex rules. Tackles, offside penalties, blitzes, and more are all factors that influence who comes out as the winner. While all of these components can impact the outcome, it is just about who scores the most points at the end of the day.

That summarizes how many of us in the cybersecurity field feel about the industry today. Many experts believe that cybersecurity has fallen into a pattern of overcomplexity and overhype, and we’ve lost sight of what truly matters: preventing adversaries from gaining access to a network.

Privacy and cybersecurity professionals, the countdown is on. New omnibus privacy laws will go into effect in California and Virginia on January 1, 2023, creating a slew of updated regulatory requirements for businesses.[1] Colorado won’t be far behind, with the state’s own version of the law going into effect on July 1, 2023. This new patchwork of state privacy laws—which will almost certainly trigger similar lawmaking in other states in the future—means it’s time for businesses across the country to start creating plans to comply with new regulations.
