With malicious threats such as ransomware continually in the news, it’s hard to deny the reality that cybersecurity is one of the top issues facing businesses today. Planners often fall short in ensuring employees are properly trained on cybersecurity best practices and often don’t always have the technical knowledge required to engage IT personnel and support them during an attack. This session will provide guidance for incorporating cybersecurity into your business continuity program. You’ll receive tips for training employees in security roles, defining information security needs and creating strong security policies.
B6 – Why You Need a Holistic Approach to Managing Critical Events
Imad Mouline, CTO, Everbridge
While critical events have become more frequent, more complex, and costly to businesses, organizations’ plans and processes have remained surprisingly siloed and constrained by an inability to holistically manage the lifecycle of a critical event—from assessment, to communication, to analysis. This session will discuss how security and IT managers can combine communication systems, incident management systems and threat visualization tools to empower critical event management, improving the way that they identify risks, communicate through an Integrated Security Operations Center to help keep their businesses safe and operating during critical events.
C6 –Documenting an Exercise
Monica Goldstein, CEO, RecoveryPlanner
Knowing how to plan and prepare all the documents for a Business Continuity exercise is fundamental to a successful exercise. In this session we will review designing and documenting a Business Continuity Table-top Exercise. Gartner says that the prep work for an exercise is approximately 60% of an Exercise. So what are you prepping? The U.S. federal government Frameworks, like NIST and NIMS, give examples of the documents to prepare but it may not be relatable or clear to the user. This session will review the information that needs to be in the documentation of an Exercise. We will provide each participant with a document that gives them guidance on exercise documentation and during the session they will work on their own Exercise Documentation.
