NextGen BIA – It’s Not Just for Business Continuity Anymore! 

Register Today!

Megan EppersonThe parade of discussions regarding the venerable concept of the BIA continues to play out across BCM industry events, discussion boards, articles, blogs, etc. Megan Epperson (right) discusses topics including streamlining the BIA, mechanizing the BIA, integrating the BIA with the risk assessment, and many others; to include eliminating the BIA altogether as proposed by adaptive methodologies. The point of this presentation will describe a major expansion of the BIA across multiple risk disciplines supporting a fundamental business intelligence and requirements contribution to all risk domains. This expanded approach will incorporate various risk disciplines to include Information Security, Physical Security, Incident Management, Risk Management, Operational Risk and many other risk disciplines. The BIA's we perform today, on behalf of BCM alone, has become obsolete due to BCM demands on addressing recovery from cyber-attacks. This is especially true for cyber events which might result in data corruption within production environments. The BIA needs to evolve in order to support industry trends and better align with organizations strategic goals.
