Kim presents at IFSEC “Security & Business Continuity Working Together”
The security manager and business continuity manager often sit in different departments within large organisations and perhaps do not work together as well as they could. She explained the role of a business continuity manager, the standards he or she is working to and some of the ‘black arts? of BC such as the Business Impact Analysis (BIA). In addition, she identified the questions to ask a business continuity manager and how to use the information collated to help the security manager focus on the most vulnerable parts of the organisation thus ensuring its best value in spending.
Kim also explained what resilience is, what it consists of and how it contributes to making an organisation more robust. To conclude, she gave a break down on how the two professions can work together to achieve mutual benefit, develop a greater understanding of the organisation they work for and ensure that the security budget is correctly spent on areas posing the greatest risk.
