Advanced Concepts in Business Continuity and Crisis Management


You've got a business continuity plan. It's reviewed, tested, maintained, and updated. Maybe you've even got some metrics that you report. That's great. But, have you asked yourself two critical questions: In a crisis, am I recoverable? And, how do I deliver value absent a crisis?

This presentation looks at the critical link between Business Continuity and Crisis Management and challenges the notion that traditional plans are equivalent to readiness. Rather, I propose that security managers are in a unique position to drive value to their organization throughout a CM/BC planning process (not just at the end, or when something bad happens), and offer strategies for doing so.
