Business Continuity Management (BCM) is in many cases still viewed in isolation, despite an exponential increase in the frequency and severity of natural, man-made, economic, and geo-political disruptions around the world. An earthquake or a tsunami in Japan or Thailand one decade ago would have remained a Japanese or Thai issue, but today, these events create ripples across the world, and have a cascading impact on organizations that operate on a global scale. Inevitably, these types of “black swans” or unexpected negative events result in immeasurable business losses, and therefore combating these risks today requires more than “a one size fits all” business continuity strategy.

An effective business continuity and risk management plan also needs to go beyond specific risks and catastrophic scenarios. It also must factor in IT, data, and voice communications, as well as essential personnel and offsite locations. A prompt and proactive approach can help organizations assure key stakeholders that they can recover and manage business operations within a few hours following a disaster. The ability to successfully manage an incident, regardless of the scale, can have tremendous impact on an organization’s reputation and brand value in the market. In order to do this, organizations must ensure that their chosen strategy takes an integrated approach, and brings together stakeholders from risk management, internal audit, information security, and business continuity management on a common and collaborative platform.

Sikich, Principal at Logical Management Systems, and Ravi Mishra, Manager Product Marketing at MetricStream during this webinar, for a synthesis of today’s risk management landscape, best practices in business continuity, and how to leverage reliable competitive intelligence as a means to protect your organization from increasing complexity in the marketplace and its adverse effect on business operations.
