Business Continuity and Risk Management Disasters and crisis affect people and the economy around the world and they appear to happen more frequently today than ever before. However, the fact is it is not just the frequency that has the greatest impact on any organizations or country. It is the way in which the technology of today enables disasters to be shown live as they happen. The demands for high profile organization or country to prepare, respond and recover from disasters is now an expectation. No excuses. Traditional hazards, risks and threats to the business sectors are now very much engulfed by unconventional threats such as terrorism and cyber security. A disaster to the financial intuitions in Asia would have a magnitude of consequences not only to their reputation, but to their valued customers, the commercial sector and the country’s economy. This workshop will discuss the current hazards, threats and risks to the financial institutions in Asia and using identified, best practice methodologies, enable attendees to help build and maintain resilient organizations through people development, risk, business continuity and disaster management principles, cyber security and managing the media in a crisis.
