DRI’s next one-day conference is coming to the campus of St. John’s University in Queens, NY, on Jan. 25, 2016, featuring an outstanding line-up of speakers and sessions!
Spotlight sessions include:
The Volkswagen Diesel Disaster 2015: A Case Study of Corporate Fraud
Dr. Chelsea Binns, College of Professional Studies, St. John’s University
Major frauds are an important, yet sometimes overlooked, aspect of business continuity planning. The recent case of major corporate fraud at Volkswagen exemplifies the risk that organizations face due to fraud. This session will examine the Volkswagen fraud, and explore how organizations may recover from such a disaster.
Critical Sector Business Resiliency Coordination
Susan Rogers, MBCP, President, Cyberwise CP
Cyber and physical protection of critical infrastructure requires partnership between businesses and government. This session will discuss the components of information sharing, analysis and trusted partner coordination used within the financial services sector.
Business Continuity Planning is Not Enough: How Crisis Communications Can Make or Break Recovery
Michelle Cross, MBCP, National Practice Leader, Business Continuity Planning, Wells Fargo
Today, social media can turn any crisis into a public event and recovery means more than recovering operations. The risks today involve pandemics, terrorism, social media, cyber-attacks and violence; even if the business operations are not disrupted there is a potential reputational risk that must be addresses. This session will discuss examples of good and bad crisis communications and review the basics of crisis communications to facilitate recovery and protect reputation.
Beyond the War Story: NYU Langone Medical Center’s Business Continuity Case Study
Mitch Simon, CBCP, Director of Business Continuity and Resilience, NYU Langone Medical Center
On October 29, 2012, Hurricane Sandy barreled through the northeast, leaving unprecedented damage and a devastated NYU Langone Medical Center in her wake. Attend this session for more than just the “war story.” You’ll find out what happened (hundreds of faculty, staff, and students – in partnership with the FDNY, NYPD, Office of Emergency Management, and volunteers – evacuated 322 patients from a building that had no power, lights, or functioning elevators) as well as what has happened since the NYU Langone reopened and reimagined business continuity program. Find out about the critical success factors in making BCP work in a healthcare setting and learn about the challenges BC professionals face in transitioning into a healthcare environment at this informative session.
NYU Langone has also been working closely with DRI’s new Hub of Resilience and Resilient Enterprise initiative, established to recognize organizations that have demonstrated extraordinary commitment preparedness and resiliency.
Attendees will enjoy a networking breakfast, luncheon, and end of day roundtable discussion with the speakers. The cost of attendance, including meals and materials, is a $50 donation to the DRI Foundation.
