Managing Risk - Risk & Security in a Complex World, 18th May 2010

When you think about risks posed by IT today, your concerns go way beyond what’s happening in the data centre or the IT department. Because in most organisations, IT has become an essential part of virtually every business process. As a result, managing Risk now means much more than protecting systems and data.  It means protecting the business itself. 

Business Continuity for extreme weather events

The conference will benefit from expert speakers such as John Sharp who lectures on Business Continuity for the Cabinet Office Emergency Planning College, and Alex Nickson who is the Mayor of London's Climate Change advisor.

The day will feature a range of presentations from practitioners discussing their experiences from recent Severe Weather incidents, each followed by a short workshop in order to facilitate learning between delegates.

A number of exhibitor opportunities still exist (lunch is even included!). For further information on this event or to reserve your place at this Special Workshop please contact us on the details below: Please book your space ASAP click on the link below!

Aimed at those looking to develop their Business Continuity skills, or those at the very start of the BC Planning phase within their organisation, these events are specifically to help ensure that your planning is as efficient and effective as possible.

BC Basics a huge hit!

 

New Continuity Forum events get a great response


Over the summer we have successfully lauched a new series of workshop events designed to help develop effective in a practical and accessible way.

The BC Basics workshops are the result of a lot of discussion with organisations in both the public and private sector were we have listened to the problems they have in developing BCM process and designed special workshop sessions to overcome the them.

With participants from all walks of life, covering Local and Central Government, Health, Emergency Services, Management Consultancy, Finance & Insurance, Transportation and Media, the spread of issues and the knowledge shared was extremely good proactive and we'd even go sofar as to say fun!

BC Basics EVENT - BC and Suppliers - London & Birmingham

Business Continuity Management BCM - EVENT - Support - Advice

Business Continuity Basics Educational Workshop SERIES TWO 

Following various successful Events held by the Continuity Forum, a number of our members and associates have requested that we run a special Programme of BCM Development Events. Aimed at those looking to develop their BC planning skills, or those at the very start of the BC Planning phase within their organisation, these events are specifically to help ensure that your planning is as efficient and effective as possible. 

To ensure that best value is gained, the events will be run in a specific order, and we strongly recommend that participants attend the entire programme, in order. The Forum will therefore offer a series of half day Round Table Workshop Events, allowing each of the delegates to build their knowledge and skills in a logical format. 

Each of the events will be hosted and facilitated by the Continuity Forum, and will use real life examples to encourage a free and open exchange of views. 

The aim of the events is to establish a clear understanding of key elements of BCM in order to enable further development of skills and knowledge relevant to each particular group of delegates. 

Business Continuity and your Suppliers 

Your organisation, whether public, private or voluntary and regardless of size is dependent upon suppliers. Many will also have outsourced key activities and use intermediaries to deliver their products and services to their customers and clients. A failure by a key supplier, outsource organisation or intermediary may disrupt the supply to clients and customers who will hold you responsible for the disruption. 

Managing suppliers is therefore critical. The event will examine the role of procurement in including BCM requirement in contracts. Session Leaders: Winston Kobylka, Government Management College and the Continuity Forum

Special Presentation Event

Insurance is a key issue for all businesses, but the connection between BC and Insurance is often misunderstood. Insurance is NOT a replacement for BC, any more than BC is an alternative to insurance.

This event aims to offer insights into the connections between Insurance and Continuity: How continuity can positively affect your insurance, and why your brokers need to be involved within the BC Process.
