Webinar: How to Respond to Operational Disruption due to COVID-19 

Webinar: How to Respond to Operational Disruption due to COVID-19 

The COVID-19 pandemic is forcing us to alter how we work and remain productive. Our new normal consists of tele-working, dispersed workgroups, and the real risk of lower productivity as we lead our people and manage our businesses. Now that this crisis is upon us, the key question is ‘how do we respond?’ versus ‘how should we prepare?’. During this webinar our panel of experts in business continuity, crisis management, compliance, security and staffing will discuss real-time lessons learned about what organizations are doing today as well as short- and longer-term considerations for business resumption.   

Following this webinar you will be able to:  

  • Identify actions you should take today to stabilize operations, enforce security, ensure compliance and manage staffing 
  • Articulate steps needed to resume operations  
  • Incorporate lessons learned into your crisis management plan for future disruptions
