Business Continuity as an Extension of Information Security & Risk Management Program

Date: Wednesday February 13, 2013 | Time: 8 am PDT | 11 am EDT


Business Continuity programs are often looked at on a standalone basis without proper alignment with Information Security & Risk Management program. Considering that IT is integral to most businesses, if the IT infrastructure is compromised or made unavailable (e.g. DDoS attack), there is a dramatic if not catastrophic affect upon the business. To minimize business disruption & maintain profitability, it is imperative that organizations look at a common framework for information security, risk & business continuity management.

In this webinar, our panelists Harvey Betan, Associate Principal at Risk Masters and Yo Delmar, Vice President of GRC Solutions at MetricStream will discuss:

  • Trends driving the convergence
  • Evolving Threat Landscape
  • Information Security & Business Continuity Planning across the broader threat landscape - Physical, Virtual, Cloud, Social & Mobile
  • Best practices for driving convergence of Risk, Information Security and Business Continuity
