CERP WORKSHOP:  All organizations face an unprecedented number of exposures and associated risk. This leaves the organization – and the people who work there, susceptible to a variety of existing and emerging vulnerabilities. An Enterprise Resiliency game plan is critical to the survival of any organization and its ability to prosper in the face of such events. Participants will come away with: 1) How to Establish a Resiliency Game Plan for the Organization; 2) How to Understand and Document the Organization’s Resiliency Current-state; 3) How to Perform a Resiliency Current-state Assessment; 4) How to create the organization’s Business Resiliency Management Plan (BRMP); 5) How to Develop and Implement Resiliency-building Remediation Projects; 6) How to Embed BRMP into the Organization’s Culture; 7) How to Prioritize the alternative options, choices, and substitutions for implementing BRMP; 8) Develop the capacity to mobilize needed resources and services during emergency situations. Additionally, participants will have direct exposure to a variety of Frameworks, Assessments, and Tools (such as the Catalyt BCM platform).
