It may not be possible to predict the next event that will disrupt your business, but it will come. These disruptions may be catastrophes such as weather or the pandemic we now find ourselves in, but often they are much more localized threats including cybersecurity events. While most organizations have some form of Business Continuity Plan in place to respond to business disruptions, these plans are often out of date, do not adequately address the varying types of disruptions or are largely ineffective when they are actually deployed in the event of a disruption. Internal Audit can play a pivotal role helping their organization understand weaknesses in their Business Continuity Plans and how to mature these plans to protect business operations when the inevitable business disruption does come.
Join the Grant Thornton’s Internal Audit Cybersecurity team on December 14th for a webcast to discuss how Internal Audit leaders can effectively assess their organization’s Business Continuity Plans and provide leading practice recommendations to mature their organization’s business and IT resiliency. The discussion will focus on:
- The current disruption landscape to be prepared for including cybersecurity events
- Business operational trends and how companies have successfully responded to unforeseen disruptions
- What does good look like – the foundational components of an effective BCP program including Business Impact Assessments, real-world scenario planning and right-sized response plans
- Key integration factors between your cybersecurity incident response processes and the enterprise BCP program
- Effective testing strategies to help ensure your BCP plan is truly operational
- Internal Audit focus areas, including a thorough understanding of the company's operational objectives and processes
- Leading practice examples on how to effectively mature business and IT resiliency
Please note: CPE credits are not awarded for webcast replay.
