Event Description
One might think that measuring the maturity of business continuity is quite simple. Could it be as simple as decreasing the number of incidents that impact your organization? Could it be as simple as reducing your insurance premium for business interruption insurance with mitigation and preparedness? The answer is no; it is not that simple! This is because there are numerous dimensions to implementing a business continuity management (BCM) program, which includes governance, education, and awareness, understanding of the organization (e.g., BIAs), preparing the organization (e.g., action planning, exercises, etc.), responding to and recovering from disruptions, as well as learning from what has happened to improve for the future (i.e., lessons management, after-action debriefs, and after-action reviews). All of these work together to contribute to the maturity of business continuity.

Learning Objectives
  1. How to measure maturity of your BCM program.
  2. Identify BCM maturity model options.
  3. Review complimentary analysis & assessments (e.g blind spot and blackswan analysis, complex change analysis, etc.)
