Speaker: Michael Kadar, DTE Energy
Is there a metric that clearly can demonstrate to executive management the overall value of the business continuity management (BCM) program to the organization? Can BCM professionals quantitatively measure current risk levels that can be compared with established risk tolerances and report them to management in a meaningful way that drives both risk management and BCM initiatives? How could such a metric actually be implemented successfully in a large organization?
This session will explore these questions and present a case study of how the BCM-RI was developed and implemented at DTE Energy. You will learn how the BCM-RI was implemented to measure the overall risk/preparedness level of DTE Energy business units, departments, subsidiaries, and the entire organization. You will see how gap analyses were performed to effectively compare BCM-RI levels to risk tolerance levels previously defined by management. Finally, you will learn how DTE Energy plans to expand the BCM-RI to develop risk indices for use by enterprise risk management and business resilience management programs.
