A Successful 2018 Continuity Insights New York Conference

Continuity Insights, in partnership with the Contingency Planning Exchange (CPE), concluded its 7th annual New York Conference at the Wyndham New Yorker Hotel, combining more than a dozen sessions and presentation focusing on strategies for the ultimate resilient organization, combined with the spirit of engaging information exchange.

On October 22, 2018, the conference attracted nearly 200 attendees, industry experts, thought leaders, and vendor representatives. Conferees exchanged insights and ideas on critical issues affecting both veteran business continuity practitioners and professionals coming up through the ranks.

Sessions dedicated to case studies, emerging issues, professional development, program development & advancement, and measurement/metrics/maturity, provided attendees with lessons learned and key takeaways from experienced business continuity professionals responsible for the integrity, availability, resilience, and security of their organizations.

Attendees also spent time in the exhibit hall, meeting with technology and service providers, and exploring the latest solutions for business continuity planning and program development, disaster recovery, and enterprise risk management.

One thought on “A Successful 2018 Continuity Insights New York Conference

  1. First, I’m a bit confused as to why a holistic approach requires any specific discipline to cede control and/or expertise.
    Isn’t this a bit like the dentist saying, “If only the nutritionists and sports medicine people would be willing to give up some of their recommendations and expertise to we dentists, then we could have better teeth-health.” Or the car brakes mechanic saying, “If only the engine and tire experts would quit being so silo-ed in their thinking, then we could make changes to get breaks to last longer.”
    Second, I’m a bit confused as to why Risk Management would be the de facto area to control / direct all other resilience-related areas. Why shouldn’t Emergency Management, Crisis Management, or any other resilience-related area take full control of a holistic program?
    I might be in favor of the holistic approach you prescribe, but I don’t think it can come at the cost of a reduction of expertise and ownership in any discipline, nor do I see why RM should control them all.
    I might suggest that IF there is to be such a holistic approach, then it might come from Resilience, but not as an area in its own right, but rather Resilience as an inter-discipline that helps coordinate and re-combine information and proven practices from many related disciplines (without cessation of control, advice, or expertise).
