PRE2: Introduction To Enterprise Risk Management (ERM)

This course will provide attendees with an understanding of Enterprise Risk Management (ERM), the overarching approach to addressing risk at a holistic and detailed level, incorporating the disciplines of Business Continuity, Disaster Recovery, Operational Resilience, Audit, etc. These disciplines cannot stand alone as siloed independent risk-based functions. Rather, they are key elements of a risk equation that comes together under the holistic umbrella of ERM. Attendees will review risk as both a strategic top-down assessment at the corporate level and a tactical bottom-up assessment at the business functional level. Key to this assessment will be the detailed use and review of the 3 Lines-of-Defense (3LOD) framework that serves as the backbone of a formal ERM risk and recovery program. Real life examples from Manufacturing, Financial Services, Pharmaceuticals, Supply Chain, and IT Operations will ensure a lively educational session.

P1: Today’s Hybrid Work Environment: Achieving Peak Performance And Employee Well-Being

As the world continues to adapt to remote or hybrid work models, it’s essential for executives and senior managers to recognize, understand, and prioritize the strategies and techniques necessary to manage this new paradigm. Following old models of organizational communication are no longer acceptable for success in these emerging environments. This session addresses the challenges of effectively managing remote and/or hybrid workers and how to overcome these with strategic planning and leadership. Dr. Chandler presents several key research findings and empirical statistics about the keys for effective remote or hybrid work models, and shares insights about the failure of using traditional organizational processes and communication assumptions when leading remote and/or hybrid workforce organizations.

B1: Risk Integration – The Cornerstone Of A Control-Based Resilience Program

In 2020, Netflix implemented a control-based program called the Unified Resilience Framework (URF) and in 2022, it was implemented at AWS Resilience Assurance program to validate acceptance by regulatory and other auditing bodies. This session will discuss the major components of a control-based resilience program, and then walk through the first element—Risk Integration. Specifically, it will discuss why risk is the cornerstone of resilience, engaging with Enterprise Risk Management, aligning terminology, primary deliverables (scope, appetite, top risks), and integration into the resilience program. From an ROI perspective, no program is as effective as a control-based resilience capability approach.

E1: What To Do When The Crisis Manager Is Having Their Own Crisis

As crisis managers, we are expected to remain calm and in charge during a disaster or crisis event. People turn to us for guidance, support, and information during the worst possible times. But what does a crisis manager do when the crisis impacts them? What is their procedure to follow? Who is there to assist? Who covers for the crisis manager?

This session will focus on three real-life scenarios where the crisis manager had to deal with real-life disaster situations. One scenario is a company declaring a disaster due to a hurricane, the second is when the crisis manager’s position was downsized and third, when a medical emergency thrusts the crisis manager into a situation they were unprepared for.

A2: Creating Team Resilience One Person At A Time: Start With Yourself

Organizations look for ways to create a sense of resilience in its plans, processes, leadership, and within its teams, but the answer to creating that resilience might not be what they think. It begins with a single, simple, step—which is often overlooked. With established research and real-life personal examples, this session will enlighten attendees on how they can begin a journey of resilience, and enhance their sphere of influence, create team resilience, and influence an organization’s leadership. Personal experiences, both good and bad, help define who we are, who we want to be, where we go, and where we take our teams and our organizations. This sphere of influence can help organizations establish a path of resilience that no documented plan, mandated directive, or policy, can create.

E4: Connecting Risk Management And Final BIA To Technology

The technology solution is fully dependent on the specific disaster recovery scenario. It joins risk, business requirements, and technology into a solution, the disaster recovery process, and the agreements made with the business with respect to site availability. The scenario must be fully researched, and the verbiage must reflect the three abovementioned criteria. If the disaster scenario is foolproof, it can provide the metrics required for the disaster recovery solution to measure success, identify gaps, need for refinement, critical risk mitigation, and the ability to meet the recovery time and point objectives. The goal is to help technology teams integrate further into the disaster recovery process. This session will explore how to define and document scenarios, the business requirements and risks, and components that may comprise the solution.

F1: Predictable Metrics: How to Accurately Gauge Your Recoverability

We capture monthly metrics to drive compliance using key data points such as continuity plan and BIA reviews, perform testing, and identify gaps to RTO’s through testing. However quantitative metrics alone cannot truly measure our ability to recover. This session will demonstrate how to take existing metrics, aggregate key data points, and generate a predictable view of your organization’s ability to recover from a disaster and highlight where there are issues. Learn to identify the key data points needed—how to capture and report it in a meaningful and visual way to articulate your operational resiliency posture. We will share proven approach, socialization, and the visual dashboard in this session so you can easily adopt this capability.

A3: Operational Resilience Outside Financial Services

Companies in all industries are committing to transition from “traditional” business continuity to Operational Resilience. But, without the regulatory guidelines imposed on banks, most companies struggle to explain the need for change, what an operational resilience program looks like in their industry, or what they will do differently. During this session, we will discuss what successful operational resilience programs look like. We will outline the journey to transition from BC to OpRes, highlight some successful operating models, and discuss the pitfalls you need to navigate to make OpRes a reality for your organization.

E9: Great Business Continuity Plan? “Check.” Emergency Action Plan? “What’s That?”

Legions of business continuity professionals create, train, and administer great Business Continuity Plans, but that same legion has no idea what an Emergency Action Plan looks like. Often organizations appoint a BC pro to be in charge of all “crisis” or “disaster” responses: Not understanding that a BC plan is never an Emergency Action Plan; Not understanding that the only reason we have a BC plan is that an emergency has struck your workplace; Not understanding that an EAP is required by law for every workplace without exception; and that before we kick in our BC plan, we will have had to respond to the emergency in four minutes or less. In this session, you’ll learn how Emergency Action Plans differ from Business Continuity Plans, and more about emergency planning laws and standards.

D1: The Missing Link In The BIA: The Importance Of Including A Pandemic Risk Assessment

Although the most impactful part of the COVID-19 pandemic is behind us, experts are certain we will likely experience another infectious disease pandemic in the future. However, many businesses have not included risks related to a pandemic in their Business Impact Assessment (BIA). Including a risk assessment for a pandemic in your BIA involves evaluating the potential consequences of a pandemic on your organization’s operations, personnel, resources, and stakeholders. Most organizations periodically review and update their BIA to reflect changes in the business environment and lessons learned from actual incidents or exercises. This session will discuss WHY and HOW you can seamlessly incorporate pandemic risk assessment into your BIA to ensure your organization remains well-prepared to manage the risks associated with a future pandemic.

F4: Risk Assessments – Visual, Statistical & Supply Chain

Using actual Client Risk Assessment results, this session will demonstrate three types of risk assessments. The first is the traditional or visual risk assessment that analyzes a client’s risk by visually examining the physical structure, looking for vulnerabilities and single points of failure. The second is a Statistical Risk Assessment, which analyzes the odds of any one of more than 100 events occurring and its financial exposure to an organization. The last is a Business Risk Assessment, where tools are provided to determine the risks to your supply chain and vendors. The results of any or all of these assessments can help justify BCP Expenditures.

E15: Streamline Your BCP With A Business Resilience Focus

Business continuity programs have pillars built in silos and eliminate inconsistency when it comes to who activates a plan/team at the time of an incident. A transition to business resilience with program pillars under one umbrella, all employees, top down/bottom up, are trained in their role and responsibilities, and organization employees participate in annual training and exercise sessions. In short, it positions organizations to prepare for anything. In this session, we’ll cover the benefits of transitioning from business continuity to business resiliency methodology. Resiliency is about adaptive capacity or “What is the capacity of your company to adapt to change after an unplanned business operations disruption?”

E16: Business Impact Analysis: Give the “A” In The BIA The Attention It Deserves!

The BIA often results in a myopic planning process where departments identify their recovery needs in a vacuum. You may already have a good understanding of the resources included in a typical BIA: such as buildings, equipment, technology, human resources, and third parties. In this session, you’ll learn a technique that helps you to identify dependencies each activity has on other department activities and verify that those activities have a recovery time objective that can meet your needs. Mapping these dependencies can have enormous benefits for your program and improve your resiliency posture.

D3: Preparing For Gradual And Rapid Changes In The Geopolitical Environment

Factoring in Geopolitics and Geopolitical Risk is becoming increasingly critical in the strategic decision-making process for organizations with an international footprint. For business continuity and resilience professionals, it is important to contextualize the geopolitical and geopolitical risk landscape, understand the geopolitical risk impacts on business strategy, innovation, and financials, look at case studies of failures, strategies to implement, keep abreast of emerging risks, and staying ahead of outcome. The geopolitical environment is becoming more competitive due to direct and indirect threats. By factoring in geopolitical risk, leadership can understand risk exposures, and plan accordingly.

E17: Exercises That Don’t Suck

What if you could plan and execute exercises that would make crisis response and emergency management easier? Learn how to develop exercises that don’t suck by not viewing it as a compliance activity, but truly designed to mitigate or eliminate potential hazards, impress leadership, and ensure brand reputation. Too often exercises feel like a waste of time and a check-the-box activity. Getting together to familiarize individuals with colleagues and review checklists may help prepare for a real event, but incidents are unpredictable and no one exercise will mirror an actual occurrence.  Learn how to develop exercised objectives that meet real organizational needs; to structure exercise injects that are plausible and keep participants engaged.

E18: Integrated Crisis Management: Getting It Right When It Matters Most

If we accept that we can’t possibly plan for everything, how should we organize ourselves to succeed? How can we scale this to the enterprise level? How do we coordinate across disciplines in real responses? The context in which we work has clearly changed, as new and different threats are forcing us as practitioners to swim in different lanes. We previously thought that good plans led to good outcomes, and that better plans would lead to better outcomes. But it takes a lot more. Not just coordination. Not just good leadership. It takes meaningful integration across our disciplines. The ability to achieve this is within our grasp, but we need to talk about how we get there.

D4: Global Climate Change And Threat Actors: Why The Next Seven Years Matter

It is likely that we will face an increase in global temperatures above two degrees in our lifetimes. If this alarming situation unfolds, thought must be given to our adversarial relationship with the four global cyber protagonists – China, Russia, Iran, and North Korea and their affiliated cyber-criminal organizations. As climate change continues to impact the world, it will influence the behaviors of all societies, geo-political relationships, and of course cyber threat actors’ behavior. The presenter suggests the impacts of global climate change on regimes, combined with the destabilization of global supply chains will increase the tempo and sophistication of the threat actors and challenge our reliance on legacy technologies. As an example, nation states affiliated Ransomware as a Service actors will continue attacks in support of their host nation governments which grant tacit approval to criminal activity.
