Security management often concentrates on preventative controls and immediate responses, as opposed to Business Continuity Management. Business Continuity Planning ensures there are plans and procedures in place to continue the core, time-critical processes of an organization; thereby ensuring the brand/reputation are safeguarded as key services continue to be delivered. This is becoming increasingly relevant as we have been seeing larger scale disasters and security threats, and an increasingly competitive market where customers easily switch brands if a product/service is unavailable.

In this webinar we will look into:

  • Security as BCP 'champion' (enabler)
  • Security as BCP 'headache' (threat)
  • Security as BCP 'saviour'
  • How can your Security team ensure its own BCP plan remains in top shape?
  • People aspects of managing BCP and security...who's the boss and where does security fit in the BCP process?

We will also discuss some best practices regarding BCP in security related incidents (both physical security incidents such as the Sydney Lindt Cafe Siege, and cyber incidents such as the Sony hack).

Attendees will learn how:

  • Any mutual dependencies between BCP and security management can be coordinated more effectively.
  • To improve BCP and prevent it from getting 'dusty' and/or not understood by most people in the organization.
  • To benefit from getting the latest, world-class tips about BCP.
