Risk and Resilience Conference 2014 

Venue: De Vere Venues, Holborn Bars, London EC1N 2NQ

Date: Thursday 3 April 2014, London

BSI and the Continuity Forum bring you the Risk and Resilience Conference 2014. For organizations across the business and public sectors that wish to gain a better understanding of the latest risk practices, this event is intended to improve the effectiveness of their risk and resilience management.

Risk Management has made the world safer - creating security and contributing to the growth, development and expansion of global business. Standards such as BS 31000 and BS 31100 provide an excellent overview of risk management, structure and methodologies for identifying risk and mitigating its effects. Organizations using these standards have seen benefits of increased profits and business growth.

The conference brings together representatives, government figures, industry thought leaders and those at the very forefront of standards development to share their knowledge and vision of how Risk and Resilience are central to business success.

Delegates will have the opportunity to:

  • Hear the latest government and policy updates

  • Learn about latest risk management trends and issues

  • Understand why climate change is becoming a main government and EU priority in addressing the application of effective risk management strategies

  • Discover why risk management is moving towards performance management and what this means for you

  • Examine the relationship between business continuity and risk management and why the alignment between governance, compliance and risk must be considered.

By attending you will gain deeper knowledge about existing standards and how their implementation could benefit your business to become more resilient. You will obtain first-hand information about the forthcoming ISO 31000 revision and have the opportunity to get involved in relevant discussions whilst networking with the experts and peers.
