CSARN / Protecting our CNI: A Public Private Perspective
In an age of increasing interconnectivity and uncertainty, quantifying and understanding risk has developed to a new level of complexity as distinctions between the public and private sector are becoming increasingly blurred. Legislators and wealth generators both ultimately seek assurance that they are taking appropriate measures to ensure business continuity and where relevant to protect critical national infrastructure. This members only briefing will be a chance to discuss public and private interpretations of risk and resilience and explore how government and business can work better together to protect critical national infrastructure.

CSARN / Cyber and information security
The cyber age and infrastructure has bought with it vulnerabilities which require the same approach to security and protection that we apply to physical infrastructure such as offices and buildings, which hold data and information intrinsic to our business operations. This necessity for robust protection of information was highlighted recently by research showing that 90% of organisations that suffer a significant data loss are not in business two years later.

Businesses, following the heightened security profile of the 2012 Olympics and against the backdrop of a changing national and international security paradigm particularly in the terrorism domain face a difficult dilemma. What is the threat ? Should businesses have strategies to respond to any threat ? if so what strategies are effective, particularly in terms of costs and business benefits?

CSARN / Situational Awareness – getting crisis into perspective
Leaders understand the criticality of situational intelligence whenever a major incident takes place. Fragments of information may become available from various sources, and reliability of the sources may be questionable, creating confusion that can substantially hinder swift and effective incident response and decision-making.

CSARN / 4th Crisis Leadership and Business Recovery
Last year's World changing events such as global unrest, terrorist attacks, drought, flooding, economic instability, pandemics and international tension between nations is a stark reminder that there is a continuing need for effective crisis leadership. The ability for national and international events to affect the growth of the UK's business sector seems to be a growing phenomenon and ultimately business need to be ever increasingly prepared to recover from a whole range of 'black swans'. There is a view that crisis leaders are not born. If that's correct, then CSARN's 4th Crisis Leadership and Business Recovery conference becomes a 'must attend' event.

CSARN / 2nd Organisational Resilience Conference
There is an expectation from shareholders, investors, staff and the wider society that organisations within the private sector will take sufficient steps to protect themselves from an 'all hazards' incident. 'Black Swans' can and will happen. The critical aspect is how quickly organisations can identify a threat and recover from the effects of a spontaneous event.
