If you missed our February 3rd virtual meeting/webinar, "Why all the Fuss About Operational Resilience?" here's a link to the online recording:

Operational Resilience. This is likely a term you’re getting more and more familiar with given the multitude of regulatory and private sector perspectives being shared. However, all industry sectors in all geographies should understand its core tenets and how operational resilience thinking can add value through a perspective that truly resonates with executive leaders and boards of directors.

In this presentation Brian Zawada, Chief Operating Officer, and Ian Crabb, Global Head of Strategy, at Castellan Solutions shared their insights for discussion.

MADRA and the Central Maryland Chapter of ACP held a joint virtual meeting on May 13, 2020.

Al Mongeon and Chris Strong presented predictions and information for the upcoming hurricane season. Although most focus is on the current pandemic, other dangers and risks remain that can impact organizations, and with many employees working remotely, effects can be different and perhaps not planned or even considered.
