Day One Keynote Speaker Confirmed

Pete O’Dell to Keynote at the 2019 Continuity Insights Management Conference

Cloud Risk – Chance of Showers

Emerging Technology Impact: The “Need-to-Knows” for Business Continuity Professionals

5G, IOT, Artificial Intelligence, Blockchain sensors, drones, robots, and more… these technologies are no longer emerging but are embraced by the business and as a result rapidly crossing our business continuity threshold.  Operational use demands a continuity plan as they are deployed, and many can enhance response greatly.  What are the various short and long-term implications, what should be the priorities for business continuity professionals, which technologies matter, and when/how will it impact your BCM program?  Information Technology (IT) is now at the forefront of Operational Technology (OT), raising recovery risk to even higher levels.

Day Two Keynote Speaker Confirmed

Jim Stickley to Keynote at the 2019 Continuity Insights Management Conference

Fraud is the New “F” Word

Jim Stickley has stolen credit cards, hacked Social Security numbers, robbed banks, and created fake ATMs. He has broken into armed government facilities and has stolen from teenagers. He is an identity thief, but he is no criminal. Fortunately for all victims involved, Stickley is a cyber security expert with over 20 years in the industry who was hired to perform these attacks by corporations testing their security, news agencies investigating security concerns, and other media outlets interested in knowing just how easy it is to commit identity theft. His job is to find security flaws before the real criminals find them and warn people and organizations about what they can do to protect themselves.

IMPORTANT:
It has come to our attention that several companies inaccurately representing themselves as our “housing vendor” are contacting individuals in the Continuity Insights Management Conference community soliciting business.
