The state of business continuity and disaster recovery planning is dismal in most organizations and nonexistent in many. Most plans in place simply don't work. This is not surprising since disaster recovery hasn't been a priority among CIOs, until now, as cloud for disaster recovery is now a viable and more cost-effective option for organizations.
One of the key activities of business continuity (BC) management is measuring the performance of the program. Good governance presumes analysis of ongoing business processes to ensure they are fulfilling company objectives. In most business continuity management activities, a management review and assessment process should be performed, and the use of metrics for measuring BC performance will provide tangible and auditable evidence that your program is performing up to expectations.
Join us and learn how to prepare for security threats such as Heartbleed by developing a metric-driven BCM program that can be implemented in the cloud, and learn how to present your plan from a business perspective that your managers will understand and support.
