Session 11 - Enabling a Comprehensive Business Continuity Strategy

Enabling a Comprehensive Business Continuity Strategy

Every day there’s a story about the impacts of weather, political upheaval, and violence on businesses and communities. If your company experiences one of these events, can it continue to deliver and at what cost? What is the ultimate impact of an event on your company’s ability to achieve its strategic outcomes? To say it differently, how would your company weather the storm?

Most strategic plans consider risks to the overall business strategy; however, does your strategic plan include addressing the risk of a business disruption to assets, staff, customers, and ongoing operations? Does your company have a business continuity strategy that is up to date and tested?

Learn how one company developed and implemented a comprehensive business continuity strategy on a shoestring budget. Examine how they incorporated various support systems, multiple physical locations and a diverse supply chain. See how you can use the same change management principles to develop your business continuity strategy and integrate the program into your organization’s workforce routine. Templates to create a business continuity analysis and plan are provided.

NASCO is owned by six large BlueCross Blue Shield (BCBS) Plans and, as NASCO’s Chief Risk Officer prior to her recent retirement, Lauret ensured processes are in place to protect the personal health information of 24 million BCBS members. She was accountable for NASCO’s enterprise risk management (ERM) program to assess, identify, monitor and reduce pertinent business risks that could prevent NASCO from achieving its objectives and goals. She was also responsible for ensuring that NASCO is in compliance with its internal operating policies and procedures and with any external legal, regulatory or contractual requirements. Lauret led several risk and security assessments that resulted in a plan to close gaps such that NASCO achieved its SOC2 and HITRUST certifications well ahead of most companies in the healthcare IT industry. During her 30 years at NASCO, Lauret created and led its consulting practice, served as Chief Financial Officer and facilitated NASCO strategy development and execution. Lauret is in the process of launching Watchtower Consulting, focusing on business and risk management strategy development and implementation planning.
