Business Continuity Planning: Lessons Learned


Many would agree that business continuity planning contributes to the total Duty of Care picture, especially for global organizations. Experience and practice strengthen your plan and to help you do so International SOS’ business continuity leaders will “step up to the plate” to discuss some of their most valuable lessons during an informative webinar on Thursday, Oct. 13 at 1 p.m. (EST). REGISTER NOW.

Michael Shea, Executive VP for IT; and Jonathan Bar, General Manager of Global Infrastructure will provide a comprehensive view of real-world risks and practical strategies and tactics for business continuity plans, with emphasis on:

  • Their organizational experiences and lessons learned from recent events, focusing on how International SOS put its business continuity plan into practice during unrest in Bangkok.
  • How to keep your internal stakeholders motivated in helping you develop and maintain an effective plan.  And keep everyone focused and calm during a crisis.
  • A discussion of planning and preparing for the unexpected with practical advice for tracking and communicating with your employees during a crisis.

Both Michael and Jon were interviewed for the July Computerworld article: “Should CIOs Have a Foreign Policy?” written by Minda Zetlin, a business technology writer and co-author of The Geek Gap: Why Business and Technology Professionals Don’t Understand Each Other and Why They Need Each Other to Survive.
