Resilience Management: Bringing People, Process and Technology Together

Presented by WCD and Castellan

Operational resilience and business continuity are top of mind for business owners and boardroom leaders across the globe, as a wide range of new risks have arisen and presented potential disruption challenges. While disruptions may look different for each company and industry, how quickly a business can recover from an event like the COVID pandemic or a cyberattack will ultimately affect the future of their business.

Women Corporate Directors (WCD) and Castellan set out to understand how organizations and their boards of directors are approaching operational resilience and business continuity, as we start to emerge from the pandemic. A WCD member survey revealed that for many companies, the pandemic highlighted the importance of looking deeper into their organization – expanding their focus beyond cyber and systems to human capital management (HCM) and global challenges such as supply chains and geopolitical risk.
