Every business should be equipped to understand for itself what most threatens and endangers its business model. This is the starting point for preparation measures for disruptions and crises that, if not properly managed, can endanger and even kill organizations as a whole.
Assessing and understanding key assets and the threats towards them is true, applied, real-life risk management. Acting and reacting in the crisis needs to be based on a proper preparation. Service continuity and IT service continuity do not happen out of the blue but out of business-informed planning, and preparation.
Christopher Schuetze, Matthias Reinwarth and Kai Boschert will highlight the most important steps of an organization's journey to prepare for and even embrace disruptive events and circumstances as part of a holistic, sustainable business approach.
They will provide guidance and, even more importantly, challenge the audience with collaborative exercises for understanding and applying key methodologies to converge business resilience management and cybersecurity into a single, tailored, yet agile survical strategy. Five building blocks will be outlined that form the foundation of a unified strategy to achieve the common goals of resilience and recovery while limiting the impact of cyber attacks on business operations.
