Program:  Making a Case for Business Continuity:  Get Other Departments Involved  

PresenterPhil Lambert, Ripcord Solutions

 

The Business Continuity Institute conducts an annual survey asking companies what they feel 
are the biggest threats to business continuity.  In the last iteration of the survey, the top 10 threats included
   1. cyberattack
    2. data breach
    6. interruption of utility supply

  1. health and 
10. safety incident 
These concerns are varied, for sure, and reinforce the importance of making business continuity a company-wide effort.

Unfortunately, BC often falls to just a few people and is limited to one or two departments. 
This reality leaves many companies unprepared—a crisis strikes but the affected business unit 
is unsure how to respond. Here are some other departments that definitely should be involved 
with your business continuity program.

Understanding How an Earthquake May Affect your Building Structures

We all know that The Big One is coming to Southern California and we want to be prepared, 
but how do you prepare a building for an earthquake?  Aren’t buildings designed by structural 
engineers to withstand earthquakes per the building code?  It turns out that every major earthquake 
has taught engineers a lot about what types of buildings are vulnerable to collapse and may be 
dangerous after an earthquake.  We will discuss the different types of vulnerable buildings to keep 
an eye out for, explore retrofit methods that should be undertaken before the next big earthquake, 
and make recommendations as to how to work with building departments to adopt policies that 
can allow for faster recovery time after a disaster.
