The Business Continuity Institute is delighted that IBM, the world's largest IT and consulting services company, is to be a gold sponsor of the BCI World Conference and Exhibition at the Novotel London West Hotel on the 8th and 9th November.
With over 50 years of business continuity and disaster recovery experience, and a Leader in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Disaster Recovery as a Service, IBM bring to BCI World a great deal of expertise and knowledge.
IBM's knowledge of the sector is perhaps demonstrated through their cutting edge research conducted in collaboration with the Ponemon Institute. The latest of which - the Cost of Data Breach Study - found that companies which have predefined Business Continuity Management processes in place are able to find and contain data breaches more quickly, and that the longer it takes to detect and contain a data breach, the more costly it becomes to resolve.
Robin Gaddum, Fellow of the BCI and Associate Partner for Resilience at IBM, commented: "We are delighted to support the BCI World Conference for the 19th consecutive year. We first introduced Business Resilience in 2003 and have been helping customers build organizational resilience ever since. The BCI World Conference and Exhibition is an opportunity for us to showcase how we apply resilience in a way that not only protects organizations but also leverages the value of information-driven insights - what we refer to today as Resilience in the Cognitive Era."
At the BCI World Conference, IBM will be hosting a session on 'Improving operational resilience and performance', which will use real world examples to describe how organizations are creating actionable intelligence to enhance their resilience and simultaneously enable operational performance improvement.
