Operational Resilience: Connecting the Dots (Frankfurt, Germany): 8 May

Business Continuity teams have long been working in isolation. But as business operations rely on a robust digital infrastructure, a cyber incident will have devastating impact on the continuity of businesses. Furthermore, in this digital era many processes are outsourced to vendors and organisations are realising the importance to connect the dots between Business Continuity Management, Cybersecurity Risk and Vendor Risk Management.

When does a cyber incident becomes a Business Continuity event? Is that the choice of the cyber risk team or are there protocols and systems that can determine the risk and implement the correct recovery process? Are your vendors SLA’s reflected in the Recovery Time Objectives (RTO) defined by your BCM team? What happens if they don’t meet those SLA’s. There are many examples where business were severely impacted because a vendor critical to a primary process failed to perform. 

Join this rich discussion and participate in the educational scenario-based workshop, as we delve into; why it is so critical, and how you can connect the dots between Business Continuity Management, Cyber Risk and Vendor Risk Management, for maximum operational resilience.

Operational Resilience: Connecting the Dots
Location: Grandhotel Hessischer Hof – Hotel Frankfurt
Date: Thursday 8 May | 12.00pm – 4.30pm

The workshop will start with a table top exercise where you will analyse real life scenarios that could happen in any organisation. You will work through a step by step analysis of the examples and ask yourself the all-important question “what would your company have done”? 
Remember, risk management is pointless if you cannot recover from a critical incident.
