DRJ Virtual Corporation Webinar

Is your BIA effective? Or are you using it ineffectively? How 2020 Changed My View on Traditional BC

Date: February 17, 2021

Speakers: Shane Mathew

In this session, Shane Mathew, Host of The Failover Plan Podcast and VP of Professional Services for Virtual Corporation, shares some of the biggest lessons he learned about business continuity from the clients his team worked within during the height of the Pandemic, and experts he’s interviewed for The Failover Plan podcast.

In this session, we will review the impact that COVID-19 has had on the industry, lessons learned from those that attempted to use the “Traditional” BC analysis and planning, and compare it to those who had to respond to the same circumstance without the “advantage” of data that BIAs and BC Plans typically provide. And by the end of this presentation, you will hear what others are now considering as adaptations to the traditional, and how you can begin to weigh changes within your BC program to learn from the experiences of other organizations.

Coffee Catch Up - Hybrid Multi-Cloud Resilience

Date: September 9, 2020

Speakers: Shane Mathew

About this Webinar: 

Public, private, hybrid, multi-cloud? Does anyone else feel like they need to know just a bit more about this and how it’s affecting your organization?

The shift towards a cloud first strategy has existed for some time however there now appears to be a post-pandemic acceleration for transformation to support the new working environment and customer offerings.  
 
Organizations are preferring to move towards a hybrid-cloud solution which enables their business to a utilise a range of different platforms which get them closer to the end consumers e.g. customers, employers etc.  

The dramatic and accelerated change to multi-cloud/ hybrid-cloud is driving a rapid dispersion of infrastructure across different platforms…so does that increase the risk?
 
Many of us are not Technologist…. however, it is vital that the resilience practitioner has an awareness of this transformation, some of the challenges ahead and some of existing tools and technologies out there to help. 
 
Not your regular webinar - let’s go Agile on this. Consider this a stand-up where anyone can contribute against the high-level structure over the session and in return, I will share out to you the collective learning and insight of the group. 
 
Together we are brighter so let’s learn together.

Disasters strike. It’s not a question of whether, but of when. While many emergencies can’t be foreseen, they can certainly be anticipated.

In a recent poll of VarianVision webinar participants:

  • only 28% reported having emergency preparedness plans in place
  • only 5% said they have emergency preparedness budget allocations

In this roundtable discussion, you will hear two perspectives on emergency preparedness:

    • Lessons learned
