Jeremy Adkins and Neeta Adkar, Lockheed Martin
Evaluating business resiliency posture, highlighting areas of progress or regression, and objectively comparing results across business areas are some of the keys to identifying opportunities to improve preparedness. Lockheed Martin has developed and implemented a model that provides the ability for each of its business areas to self-assess the health of crisis management, business continuity, IT disaster recovery and medical response activities. This presentation will focus on an overview of the project, information about the structure of the model, and how the results are shared.
