QLD Chapter - Business Interruption & Continuity
The threat landscape facing leaders and organisations today is arguably one of the most challenging and uncertain in recent history. 2019 has proven itself to be a year of new and emerging threats at both local and global levels, including geo-political tensions, climate change mitigation, and cyber-attack.
The 2019 Crisis Management Survey conducted by Catalyst Technologies, a strategic partner of RiskLogic, found:
- Incidents of highest concern to organisations across Australia and New Zealand were Cyber Attack, Data Breach and Adverse Weather.
- Incidents causing highest number of Resilience Program activations were Natural Disasters, Key Personnel / People Issues, and Impacts to Infrastructure.
- Resoundingly, the highest reported impact following a disruptive event was People, demonstrating a clear focus across all organisations on our people as the most important asset.
Australia, and more specifically Queensland, are facing an uncertain Insurance environment, with more and more regions facing an ‘uninsurable’ level of risk. Additionally, Leaders and Executive teams within organisations are experiencing growing levels of accountability to ensure they are prepared to manage and recovery from these events.
Business Continuity planning is critical for your organisation to ensure it is better equipped and prepared to tackle this challenge head on. Building and proving resilience capability can support recovery of time-sensitive operational functions and more importantly, support your people during a disruptive business event. Ultimately, accountability for this sits with business leaders and executive teams, including boards.
Join us for an insight into the current threat landscape and its challenges, uncover key risks to Australian and Queensland businesses, and discover how Business Continuity planning can prepare you and your organisation to respond and recover from any disruptive event – it’s not if, but when.
Not only will we hear from our guest speakers from Risk Logic, but we will also share learnings from the RMIA national conference and of course celebrate another great year as a chapter. This is a chance to also provide feedback to your QLD Chapter committee on events you would like to see and be involved with for 2020. Not to mention it’s another opportunity to network with others from our industry. Look forward to seeing you there.
