Most of us conduct BIAs for our process and functions, but we seldom if ever use the data to do more than update our recovery plans. What if you could use the same data to clarify the vision of your Process Risk? What if that would in turn clarify the enterprise risk management view? This session will give you some tips on how to leverage the BIA data you already have to assess your exposure to process failure, giving your executives a better view of the true status your operational risks.

When the Smoke Clears: How ISO Certification Enabled Our Business to Continue During Recent Northern California Wildfires

When:
Monday, March 16, 2020
2:45 p.m. – 3:45 p.m.

Speaker:
Maureen Roskoski, Facility Engineering Associates

As a small business, when we undertook the ISO Business Continuity Management Systems certification, we knew it would be a challenge and yet it would help us plan for business interruptions. However, until we experienced a real emergency and office closure, we did not appreciate how much it actually helped us prepare for what was, at the time, the most destructive fire in California history. FEA’s Santa Rosa office was part of the evacuation area for the northern California wildfires that raged in October 2017. While our facility remained intact, buildings all around burned to the ground and the surrounding areas were inaccessible for weeks. Key elements from the business continuity management system developed through our ISO certification allowed us to maintain operations and provide services to our clients. Using the lessons learned through that experience, this presentation will share what worked and what could be improved during the event and the aftermath. We will share how the ISO 22301 Business Continuity Management Systems certification process is an effective tool to implement both incident response and business continuity plans. After joining our session, you will understand why we are committed to maintaining this certification.

Make the Right Choice between Disaster Recovery-as-a Service (DRaaS) Solutions

When:
Monday, March 16, 2020
2:45 p.m. – 3:45 p.m.

Speaker:
Jerome Wendt, DCIG

Backup, cloud, replication, and managed service providers are rapidly converging to provide organizations of all size with new, robust DRaaS solutions. These solutions address many of the challenges that organizations normally face when implementing DR themselves. However, as these technologies converge, organizations must still make make key decisions along the way. They must decide which type of DRaaS solution best aligns with their needs. They need to determine how much, if any, help they want when performing a recovery and where they want to recover. They need to answer how much, if any, change they want to make to their environment to implement the DRaaS solution.

This informative, vendor-neutral session will walk attendees available through the various approaches available that DRaaS providers take when delivering their solution. It will examine the pros and cons of each DRaaS approach, how each one aligns with the needs and requirements of specific organizations, and will provide key questions that organizations should ask to evaluate prospective DRaaS providers.
