Business Continuity – more than just backups!

Please join us for the first quarterly meeting of 2020 on 12 March in central London (venue TBC), when we’ll be tackling the elephant in the room - business continuity. We all talk about it (after the event), we all write about (remember that process document you wrote all those years ago), and we all need it. It is the epitome of “having it and not needing it” over “needing it and not having it”.

So when did you last test it?

The evolving scenario around Covid-19 is a very timely and real reminder of why disaster management is such a vital part of our organisational planning. Our meeting topic, Business Continuity – more than just backups!, will enable all of us to review our plans with a critical and highly informed eye and look at how we can develop and improve the actions we take in response to a major incident.

Our Platinum Sponsors, Databarracks, will open the meeting with a walk through the key risks that charities face in 2020, using current case studies to highlight the challenges. They will look at the steps that we can all take to improve organisational resilience, and how to most effectively manage incidents to minimise impact and restore reputation and credibility.

Matt Jago will share his recent experiences and learnings in managing a data breach at Sightsavers and Laura Dawson will take us through the key steps in running effective contingency planning meetings.

After a networking coffee break, Dan Hall will share the key insights from GDST’s Covid-19 management strategy. We’ll then bring all this learning and practical experience to bear in facilitated scenario planning sessions.

Not only will we all have the opportunity to learn from very real and current incidents, but we’ll also be sharing best practice guidance and strategies. The afternoon will be invaluable in supporting all of us in enabling our organisations to better manage critical incidents.
