Webinar: To stay relevant business continuity must adapt

Wednesday 16th September 2020

Webinar Overview

How the pandemic is forcing change on business continuity and resilience

In this webinar Jim Preen is joined by Jonathan Hemus to discuss how Covid-19 is shaping and changing business continuity and crisis management. Topics under the spotlight include:

  • With the pandemic taking up so much bandwidth, have crisis managers taken their eye off the ball when it comes to traditional threats such as cyber and terror?
  • Home working is becoming the new normal; offices are shuttering. How does this impact our ability to fight a crisis when staff are no longer in the same room?
  • How should plans and playbooks reflect the new socially distanced world?
  • Has the appetite for simulations and training gone away or is it just on pause?
  • As the BCI is promoting education for young people, we look at what it takes to get ahead in business continuity, and where the industry is going.
