What Are the Risks From Hurricane Sandy?
This study group is designed to give delegates the opportunity to hear successful resilience case studies, and take part in interactive activities and discussion to apply the lessons learned to their own organisation. Delegates will learn practical strategies on:
- Avoiding incidents before they happen with effective risk management
- Developing contingency plans and running emergency exercises
- Understanding and integrating IT resilience into overall planning
- Embedding resilience across your organisation within a corporate governance framework
More about the forum:
Economic and political turbulence. Natural disasters. IT failure. Human error. A truly resilient organisation should be able to recover from any of these incidents effectively, and quickly get back to running business as usual. But how can you tell if your organisation is really resilient? It’s not enough to tick off points on a check list, test your emergency plan once a year and then let your organisation forget about resilience until another incident occurs.
To be truly resilient, your organisation needs to have an integrated strategy covering continuity planning, risk management, knowledge sharing, IT alignment and leadership. These activities must be embedded and understood across your organisation all of the time, not just when disaster strikes. If not, your organisation can be seriously damaged by even a minor incident, wasting time and money, disrupting service delivery and damaging your organisation’s reputation.
