BCMS in the Saudi Arabian Banking Sector (w/ Khaled Altawily)

Join me Thursday, February 16/23 at 1pm on the VoiceAmerica Business Channel!

Some might believe that banking and Business Continuity Management Systems (BCMS) would be the same around the globe. Though parts of that might be true, other aspects, perspectives, and methodologies aren’t always the same. I’m joined by award winning BCM expert Khaled Altawily, who talks about BCM in the banking sector of Saudi Arabia.

During the episode, we talk about:

1. Risk tools in Business Continuity Management Systems (BCMS),

2. Risk scales and terminology,

3. Risk and risk Controls,

4. Internal and external partners,

5. The overlap between BCM and various control functions,

6. The maturity of BCMS in the Saudi Arabian banking sector,

7. The challenges with BCM post-COVID19 (Thought on the other side of the world, you’ll find that many of the challenges sound familiar.)…and more.

Khaled does a great job of shining the light on the banking sector in Saudi Arabia, and how it has implemented a successful BCM methodology, especially when he talks about the maturity levels set for the sector. Don’t miss Khaled’s insights. Enjoy!

Join me May 12, 2022 at 1PM EST!

Climate Change is one of – if not the most – important issue facing individuals, communities, organizations, and the world today. It’s become a key component that many Business Continuity (BC) professionals must address; from the Risk Analysis (RA) to the Business Impact Analysis (BIA), to preparedness and response plans.

I talk with noted industry expert Margaret Millett about what BC professionals can do to address Climate Change concerns in their organizations.

We talk about:

1. Historical Information (cities, species…),

2. Risks and Impacts,

3. The challenge facing the BC profession and professional,

4. Considerations for organizations,

5. What opportunities exist for the BC industry/professional?,

6. Getting ahead of the Climate Change risk,

7. The Risk Analysis (RA) and Business Impact Analysis (BIA),

8. Policy and standards,

9. Company response (Mitigation, Preparedness, Response, Recovery),

10. Metrics,

11. Sharing information with Leadership and the Board of Directors…and more.

It’s an insightful discussion on how we as professionals, can address the challenges Climate Change posses us and our organizations. Enjoy!

I talk with recognized Supply Chain Management industry expert Paul Raw, about what really makes up a good Supply Chain Management system and the considerations that organizations often overlook – or don’t even know about. We’ll touch on how the supply chain can be managed effectively using risk identification and risk management practices. Paul will also talk about he Resiliency Cycle (Prevention, Mitigation, Preparation, Response, Recovery) using real-world examples and some personal experiences. Paul takes Supply Chain Management and Resiliency into a much more detailed world.
