Failure of a supplier to deliver goods and services has potential to seriously damage the productivity, financial performance and reputation of a company. Be able to identify supply chain risks and their impact on supply chain to come up with a strategic contingency plan that will ensure operations during disaster.

CRISIS AND COMMUNICATION MANAGEMENT Knowing that crisis is no longer a question of “if” but a question of “when” organizations must invest more in creating a holistic communication plan to ensure operations and safety of employees during incidents. Understand the different crisis communication activities that should be undertaken in the different stages of a crisis and utilize social media strategy during crises.

RISK MANAGEMENT Organizations are exposed to a variety of risks that if not managed well may result to a loss of revenue, customers and confidence of stakeholders. Be aware of the different risks and how resiliency can be achieved through proper risk assessment, contingency planning, systems security, crisis and incident management and recovery planning.

EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT Ongoing impacts of a disaster or emergency event and the resources and efforts needed to truly recover are rarely given such attention or are fully appreciated. Traditional emergency programs have focused on preparedness and response. Gain a better understanding of how organizations were able to demonstrate a recovery plan that allowed them to continue operations in the event of an emergency.

Technology Spotlight



Facilities management is often sidelined during the initial business continuity and disaster recovery planning. Whilst many business continuity plans offer a brick and mortar solution in the form of disaster recovery centers, acknowledging the problem of staff relocation should be at the forefront of any business continuity exercise. Learn how to include office space, office facilities, staff welfare and transport in your contingency plan.

INFORMATION SECURITY The Information Security Forum (ISF) predicted the top 5 security threats businesses will face in 2013 – from cybersecurity, supply chain security, big data, data security in the cloud and mobile devices in the workplace. If businesses want to stay ahead from these unforeseen, high-impact events resilience-based approaches to mitigating risk need to be at the forefront of risk management and business continuity planning teams.

AUDIT AND INSURANCE Events such as the Eyjafjallajökull eruption, Hurricane Sandy, the Thai floods and tsunami in Japan raised issues such as the scope of the cover provided and the burden of proof required to establish losses. Verifying the amount of coverage sufficient to cover an organization’s needs becomes a very laborious and complex process. Develop an all-risks approach to perform a comprehensive audit and determine sufficient coverage.
