Is your Business Continuity Plan sufficient in times of emergency?

16th September 2020, Australia

Virtual Event Series

Hosted By

Date: Wednesday, 16th September 2020

Time: 2:00pm – 3:00pm (AEST)




Synopsis and overview of the session

Every business is susceptible to any number of disasters that can range from minor to catastrophic. Therefore, planning for how to avoid a major disruption to operations is a critical requirement.

The need for a thorough analysis of an organisation’s key processes is highlighted by recent events, such as bushfires, floods, droughts and the present pandemic.

Organisations that fail to manage the risks associated with such events increase the risk of business failure.

However, static BCPs are often inadequate due to:

  • the inability to maintain accurate information throughout the BCP
  • the inability to  interactively manage processes
  • the inability to deliver and monitor required actions in an effective and timely way

To mitigate the shortfalls of a paper- based or spreadsheet-based BCP, Arventa has developed Quadrum One – a highly interactive Business Continuity Management System, which delivers:

  • Business Impact Analysis
  • Continuity Team Management
  • Training Management
  • Rapid Crisis Response Management
  • Recovery Roadmap Builder

Focus Network, in partnership with Arventa, will be bringing leading Risk executives to discuss Business Continuity Planning (BCP), Automation – Business Continuity Management Systems and further insights into Arventa’s Automated Business Management Continuity System – Quadrum One.
