    Crisis Communications – The Good, The Bad, The Ugly!

    Dr. Steve Goldman

    ACP Session Description

    The basis for Crisis Communications is rather simple:

    [Information Source] -> [Transfer Medium] -> [Information Target]

    What could possibly go wrong?

    Well, as it turns out, plenty! In this dynamic session, Dr. Steve Goldman will begin with a brief introduction to the art and science of crisis communications, including why this topic is so important for Business Resiliency Managers. Then he will examine several crisis communications responses – good, bad, and ugly. He will describe the causes, consequences, and lessons learned from the responses. Some videos will be shown. Dr. Steve concludes with observations on improving your crisis communications efforts, so your organization does not become an ugly case study in the media and in his future presentations.

    Topic: Enterprise continuity ‘ala’ Netflix

    Enterprise continuity is important to any organization, including Netflix, as it ensures that the business can continue operating even in the face of unexpected disruptions, such as natural disasters, cyber-attacks, or other incidents that could impact the organization's ability to provide services to its customers.

    Taking Netflix’s unique culture into account, we have developed an adaptive model and methodology for the Enterprise Continuity (EC) program to identify where our critical assets are, determine how resilient they need to be, measure how resilient they currently are, and provide guidance on how to increase their resilience when and if needed.

    This methodology includes:

    • Educating leadership and asset owners of their resilience and continuity posture
    • Developing a dependencies map to identify areas of unseen risk as it relates to continuity
    • Providing guidance and mitigation expertise to asset owners who require it.
    • Identifying best practices across teams by sharing context gathered from continuity assessments

    Speaker: Gayle Anders

    "The Best Tabletop Exercises in the World” presented by James Green

    Tabletop Exercises are a key component of a robust business continuity program. And for many resilience professionals, it is one of the few times that we meaningfully interact with executives and stakeholders. But a successful tabletop exercise is more than just surprise injects.  And in today's rapidly changing business climate, it’s becoming a challenge to capture the same audience’s attention year after year. Quality exercises challenge our audience’s perceptions and keep people engaged. Great exercises enable our organizations to mitigate risk.

    During this presentation we will explore the key facets of a great exercise, common pitfalls to avoid, and help you conduct the best tabletop exercises in the world.
