The list of challenges continues to grow almost exponentially annually. Chloe Demrovsky, a respected expert in the continuity industry will present her views on these issues as well as providing attendees an opportunity to discuss and examine her experiences towards events that may impact the industry in 2016. Topics will range from the very real and growing cyber threat against critical infrastructure to the growing challenge of globalization Discussion questions include how practitioners around the globe address incremental and complex inter dependencies between organizations and associated emerging risks; which risks exist across borders and markets, and how that knowledge can be utilized to gain strategic advantage; as well as how clear communication is critical to effective continuity and crisis management.
Another unique aspect to DRI’s continuity development and standardization is how a group of DRI-led volunteers pulled industry terminology from multiple reference documents, professional glossaries, standards and regulations from around the world to create a comprehensive global lexicon. Chloe will showcase this useful resource, maintained by DRI International in collaboration with a wide number of international industry leaders, and describe why it is now the industry’s most comprehensive BCM glossary.
