Date: May 17
Time: 12:00Noon – 1:00PM Eastern
Presenters: Mark Armour
David Lindstedt, PhD
Traditional business continuity practices are followed the world over despite the lack of any true objective measure of their effectiveness. Since the inception of the discipline, we practitioners have fought to demonstrate value to the organizations we serve. We’ve also heard the same laments from practitioners and leaders for years: executive support is lacking and difficult to obtain, the BIA is cumbersome, people don’t follow their plans, companies can’t meet their recovery time objectives when real events occur, and the list goes on. There is a new, better way to approach this discipline, one that removes the roadblocks associated with accepted practices and paves the way for a more lean and agile methodology.
In this webinar, learn what Adaptive Business Continuity is all about and how to effectively execute in this new paradigm. Bring an open mind and prepare to have all your assumptions about business continuity be challenged!

Well, one of the biggest challenges is determining what your organization’s essential functions are—they are not necessarily everything you do. Read the full article here.
