BCAW+R sponsor announcement: Riskonnect

  • 16 Apr 2024

We are excited to announce Riskonnect as the sponsor for this year’s Business Continuity & Resilience Awareness Week (BCAW+R), which will take place from 13th to 17th May. 

The campaign is designed to support organizations in embracing and raising awareness of business continuity and resilience amongst their employees and staff members. During BCAW+R you will have access to a wide range of resources including a packed programme of webinars, case studies, awareness tools, and more… 

This week we sat down with Brian Zawada FBCI General Manager – Resilience, at Riskonnect, to learn more about what they do and why they decided to support BCAW+R 2024.

Riskonnect is the leading integrated risk management software solution provider. Our technology empowers organizations with the ability to anticipate, manage, and respond in real-time to strategic and operational risks across the extended enterprise. Our business continuity consulting services and software help organizations prepare for threats and minimise disruption to operations. 

We are proud to return as the sponsor of this year’s BCAW+R event, which is the ideal forum for exchanging ideas, refining best practices, and deepening the knowledge of business continuity professionals. As the sponsor, we want to inspire these professionals to become more proactive when building a business continuity program within both the organization and community to collectively enhance resilience on a global scale.

What does proactive resilience mean to your organization? 

For Riskonnect, pro-active resilience means having the ability to look ahead to evaluate threats, estimate the possible impact, and determine a course of action. Time is of the essence when responding to a disruption and having a practiced plan in place is essential to minimizing the impact. 

Pro-active resilience considers resilience capabilities well in advance of disruption, building in capabilities into the organization’s go-to-market strategy while at the same time building a culture of preparedness. Indeed, organizations cannot prevent all forms of disruption, but it’s possible to architect the organization to withstand the threat and continue the delivery of products and services.  This doesn’t mean strong response and recovery capabilities aren’t needed – they are! However, designing the organization to minimize the need for response and recovery capabilities is certainly preferred.

Why did Riskonnect decide to sponsor BCAW+R once again?

BCAW has become known as THE global-sponsored virtual event for business continuity and resilience professionals to share ideas, advice, and real-world experiences to achieve the right level of resilience for their organizations.

With the added focus on resilience this year, BCAW+R is set to propel resilience professionals forward in their journey to success. Riskonnect wanted to be directly involved in this popular event to inspire organizations to refine and strengthen their resilience plans. We are excited to contribute our expertise to an exciting BCAW+R programme full of thought-provoking webinars that showcase the importance of resilience to all organizations.

How does Riskonnect contribute to the goals of the BCAW+R?

The 2024 theme, “empowering tomorrow: building resilience today,” is a topic we demonstrate every day through our company mission, values, products, and people. We embrace a proactive approach to business continuity and resilience in all our actions. We actively develop innovative solutions in this field and pride ourselves on our ability to help organizations respond to ever-changing circumstances and environments with insight and agility. 

During BCAW+R 2024, our resilience experts will present two informative webinars:

  1. Resilience and Innovation: Building Agility in Ever-Changing Environments.
  2. Resilience and Innovation: Leveraging Technology & AI to Build Resilience.

These webinars will provide insightful, inspirational, and actionable ideas to help organizations build their resilience strategies.

We are also committed to providing resources to help organizations successfully improve awareness, boost engagement, and ultimately develop an internal resilience culture whilst building community resilience on a global level. A sample of these can be found on the BCAW+R sponsor webpage. A more extensive collection of eBooks, blogs, white papers, webinars, calculators, and more can be found in Riskonnect’s resource library at www.riskonnect.com.

How does this sponsorship align with your Riskonnect’s mission and values?

BCAW+R is always a great way to connect – and reconnect – with other business continuity professionals to exchange ideas and explore leading practices. The week attracts the very best and will deliver incredible learning experiences and networking opportunities over the course of the five days that you simply can’t find elsewhere.  

By sponsoring BCAW+R, Riskonnect looks to inspire the community by seeing resilience from a variety of new perspectives, differing approaches, and strategies. The week provides a valuable opportunity to collaborate with the best of the industry and leave with actionable ideas industry professionals can use to continuously improve their own organizations’ resilience success.
