“Data Measurement & Visualization meets Business Continuity Metrics – Harness the Power of Measurement & Visualization to help enhance your BCM Program!”

Date: Wednesday, April 17
Time: 12:00 pm EDT
Presenter: Dr. Bernard A. Jones, CBCP

This webinar explores data measurement, data visualization, and business continuity management (BCM) metrics.  Honestly, these concepts are not new, but as our world continues to become increasingly more dependent on ‘data,’ business executives look to harness data for competitive advantage. 

So how do BCM metrics enter this conversation?  

Well as a long-time business continuity practitioner, Dr. Jones (right) believes BCM metrics are still maturing and must continue to forge its way into the minds of C-Suite executives.  But with ever-present budget cuts and downsizing efforts always looming, which program usually gets the squeeze? You guessed it, the BCM program! 

In his dual role as a university professor, Dr. Jones (left) has completed comprehensive research into these topics and will present his findings to help you add value to your BCM programs.  Why can’t BCM practitioners play in the data measurement and data visualization sandbox to help elevate our BCM programs?

Here’s the movie narrative: “A data analyst, BCM Manager & CEO walk into a bar……”  

Dr. Bernard A. Jones, CBCP is an Assistant Professor in Homeland Security & Emergency Management at St. John’s University in New York City.  He is also a Senior Consultant—Business Continuity Manager for MetroPlus Health Plan. Dr. Jones is a former member of the ACP National Board of Directors and is currently president of ACP’s Garden State Chapter.
