Webinar – Six Drivers and Ten Principles: An Introduction to Adaptive Business Continuity

Six Drivers and Ten Principles:  An Introduction to Adaptive Business Continuity
Thursday, January 17, 2019
2:00 p.m. ET

Adaptive Business Continuity (Adaptive BC) is an approach to continuously improve an organization’s recovery capabilities, with a focus on the continued delivery of services following an unexpected unavailability of people, locations, and/or resources. Adaptive BC transforms or eliminates the majority of traditional activities in the continuity planning industry. 

As a result of this focus on proven practices it can help practitioners stray away from outdated and ineffectual “best” practices. Join author, speaker, and unconventional business continuity thought-leader David Lindstedt as he presents Six Drivers and Ten Principles: An Introduction to Adaptive BC, an in-depth discussion that explores the ways in which Adaptive BC better equips continuity practitioners by enhancing their ability to limit potential damage to organizations’ brand, capital, functions, and revenue following an incident or disaster. Continuity Insights will be hosting this complementary webinar on Thursday, January 17, 2019 at 2:00 p.m. ET. Register here to learn more about this critical topic:
Six Drivers and Ten Principles: An Introduction to Adaptive BC.          

Adaptive Business Continuity's Newest approach

Through a wealth of examples, diagrams, and real-world case studies, Lindstedt and Armour show you the most important steps on how to execute an Adaptive Business Continuity. The book further outlines a framework for you to include in your own organization. For instance, you will:

  • Recognize specific practices in traditional Business Continuity that may be problematic, outdated, or ineffective further down the road.
  • Identify specific, but important activities that you may wish to eliminate from your practice.
  • Learn the capability and constraint model of recoverability.
  • Understand how Adaptive BC can be effective in organizations with vastly different cultures and program maturity levels.
  • See how to take the steps to implement Adaptive BC in your own organization.
  • Think through some of the most important challenges and opportunities that may arise as you implement an Adaptive Business Continuity approach.

Altogether this framework will help your business improve and demonstrate a more effective continuity plan.

Creating a Culture of Cybersecurity

Creating a Culture of Cybersecurity

Even the best made cybersecurity governance programs cannot predict every situation that should be guided by a principle or policy. At some point, you will have to rely on the employees of your organization to do the right thing. How do you train every employee to do the right thing every time? The answer is you cannot; no amount of training will accomplish this. What you must do is change the culture of cybersecurity over time where doing the right thing becomes intuitive. Training will help, but is not the sole answer.

Root Cause Incident Investigation Problems and Solutions

Common Root Cause Investigation Problems and Solutions

The following are typical reasons why most root cause incident investigation programs fail to live up to the organization’s expectations, from the book Root Cause Analysis Handbook: A Guide to Efficient and Effective Incident Investigation.

There Is No Business Driver to Change

If the organization is performing acceptably with its current practices, then there is no significant driver to get personnel to change from their current behavior. The organization and the individuals in the organization need a reason to change, as most people do not like change. Investigating and learning from mistakes usually requires a change in the organization’s mind-set or behavior, and a powerful reason is needed to drive such change. This driver must be clearly tied into the rollout of the Root Cause Analysis (RCA) program.
