Overview of the Workshop:

We live in uncertain times. The idea of business continuity management (BCM) is the creation of a strategy through the recognition of threats and risks facing a company, with an eye to ensure that personnel and assets are protected and able to function in the event of a disaster. Risk Management is gaining greater attention and recognition within Corporates and Boards are keen to ensure that the organisations are risk protected and have a management plan in place.
