COVID-19 and Continuity

Recorded 9 April 2020 (11:00 - 12:30 BST)

Malcolm Cornish, who led the development of the standard ISO 22313:2020, introduces this new edition and looks for answers to key questions that will enable organisations to:

  • assess the issues they are facing
  • put together a coherent and cohesive plan for adapting to new realities
  • support the well-being of the workforce and ensure the organization's survival
  • ensure that the necessary checks and balances are in place
  • look for ways to improve beyond coronavirus

Rick Cudworth will take time out from advising many clients to explain how the concepts set out in the Standard are being applied in practice. He will look at how continuity and resilience based planning techniques can help through the expected 6, 12 and 18 month ‘waves of disruption’ using three scenarios in which:

  • the current restrictions are still in place
  • there is some relaxation of the current restrictions
  • there is a move away from restrictions

He will provide guidance on how organisations can ‘ride the waves’ whilst ensuring safe, flexible and resilient operations throughout
