Minimizing Cyber-attack Impacts: Digital Supply Chain Management

Join me August 4/22 at 1pm EST!

There is allot of focus on our physical Supply Chains, but what about digital supply chains? I talk with long time lead auditor for ISO 9001, ISO 27001 and other standards, Willy Fabritius. Willy takes a different view of Supply Chain Management and talks about the digital aspects, rather than the traditionally focus of physical products and their supply chains. It’s a new perspective that hasn’t been fully talked about until now.

Willy talks about:

1. Defining digital supply chains,

2. Digital supply chain issues,

3. Products and Services obtained through a digital manner,

4. Impacts of digital changes to products already in use,

5. Key program components and possible solutions,

6. Risk Assessments / Analysis,

7. Regulatory requirements,

8. User awareness (People aren’t as aware as you might think.),

9. Incident management and learning from them,

10. Management Systems,

11. Independent reviews and assessments (Governance)…and more.

It’s a very informative talk with a focus many aren’t considering in Supply Chain Management; the digital aspects. Don’t miss this!

Enjoy!

Articulating the Value of Business Continuity w/ Lisa Jones and Milena Maneva

Join Alex Fullick on January 6, 2022!

“If you are a Business Continuity or Resilience professional and you wonder what your future role will look like, or if you struggle to articulate your value to senior management and the business overall, this…is for you.” (From the Resilience Think Tank article “Articulating Value as a Business Continuity Professional”, Jones & Maneva, September 2021). I talk with 2 of the founders of the Resilience Think Tank, Lisa Jones and Milena Maneva, about their published article with the BCI. We have a very informative discussion on how to communicate our value to organizations and where we can help organizations succeed in BCM, Crises, and in Resilience. Some of the topics we touch on include: a) Getting involved with, and how to approach, other organizational disciplines, b) Aligning our BCM program to our organizations, rather than just a standard or guiding principle, c) Tie our actions to risks raised by our organization(s), d) How to break down silos and create a network, and much more. It’s a fun chat with Lisa and Milena you don’t want to miss.
