Operational Resilience – What is it, and How Can You Achieve it?
Time: Tuesday; 10:45 AM General Session 6
Location: General Session Location
Business Continuity professionals are asked to make the organization ‘resilient’ – but what does that mean? How do you measure it? And how do you create a program that spans the enterprise without being perceived as the ‘DR’ team? This presentation explores the three pillars of operational resilience defined as business continuity management, information security, and IT operations – and offers a powerful approach for focusing on operational risk exposures, identifying measurable improvement, and driving operational resilience, so that leaders can have greater certainty, lower risk, and better-managed costs. Presented by Christopher Burgher CISSP, PMP, CISA, principal SunGard Consulting Services.
