The move to a platform economy, the foundation of which is cloud and mobility, is accelerating a new imperative to address security and resilience holistically. The growing challenge of sustaining business operations in this hyperconnected world has created a need for a comprehensive and integrated approach to both. The ultimate goal is operational resilience. Microsoft’s Edna Conway, Chief Security and Risk Officer of Azure, will lead this session, Operational Resilience in a Hyperconnected World, on June 17, 2021 at 2:00 p.m. EDT, and provide a real-world, tangible approach to address security and resilience to support you in your journey to operational resilience. 

Operational resilience is defined as initiatives that expand business continuity management programs to focus on the impacts, connected risk appetite and tolerance levels for disruption of product or service delivery to internal and external stakeholders (such as employees, customers, citizens and partners). Operational resilience initiatives coordinate management of an organization's risk assessments, monitoring and execution of controls that impact the workforce, processes, facilities, technology (IT, OT, IoT, physical and cyber-physical) and third parties across the following risk domains used in the business delivery and value realization process: Security (cyber and physical), Safety, Privacy, Continuity of Operations, and Reliability. 

Without operational resilience, any disruption to an organization could significantly impact its financial stability, threaten the business's viability, and harm consumers, customers, and the overall business. 

Learning objectives of the webinar include:

  • Describe why operational resilience is the new imperative for sustaining business operations.
  • Explain the pillars of security and resiliency as the foundation for addressing operational resilience.
  • Examine the need to engage collaboratively with government organizations, across the enterprise and throughout your third-party ecosystem.
  • Explore specific techniques and processes to successfully address third-party risk, security and resiliency that you can implement in your own organization.
