CONVERGENCE OF DISCIPLINES – Planning for the loss of People, Facilities, Systems and/or Infrastructure
Wed, Mar 11, 2020 2:00 PM – 3:00 PM EDT
How do you bring it all together?
Companies/Agencies are evolving exponentially in terms of products, customers, customer markets and staff as well as expanding in terms of responsibility centers (Private or Public enterprises). Currently, many divisions or departments within have mechanisms in place for day-to-day continuity of operations response; however, these efforts range drastically in both completeness and effectiveness. There needs to be an overarching strategy and cross-functional governance to manage investments and projects that are currently implemented in isolation across departments related to Emergency Management (EM), Business Continuity (BC), Information Technology Disaster Recovery (IT-DR) and Vendor Management. If there isn’t a convergence, the impacted entity may experience detrimental and costly downstream effects that have system-wide impact and unintended consequences in other parts of the operations. Convergence will provide a mechanism to plan for the loss of People, Facilities, Systems and/or Infrastructure both internally and externally – How do you bring it all together?
