Meet-The-Experts Malaysia (in collaboration with ISACA Malaysia Chapter)

Malaysia, 6 April 2016 – In collaboration with ISACA Malaysia, BCM Institute hosted our bi-annual Meet-The-Experts session at Furama Hotel, Kuala Lumpur. Our theme for this session is, “Sustaining Business Continuity Management and Resiliency Implications for Management, Auditors and Planners.”

BCM Institute’s Meet-The-Expert (MTE) is a half-day seminar that aims to bring Business Continuity Management (BCM), IT Disaster Recovery (IT DR), and Crisis Management (CM) professionals together to exchange ideas and keep updated on the latest best practices in the local industry. The MTE Seminar seeks to address and discuss key topics surrounding the BCM, IT DR, and CM process, as well as provide a networking opportunity for like-minded professionals to engage and interact.

Dr. Goh Moh Heng & Mr. Murari Kalyanaramani, the panel speakers of MTE Malaysia 2016, delved extensively into Business Continuity Resiliency Implications and Crisis Management. Dr. Goh, President of BCM Institute, touched upon the overview of the BCM program setup, methodologies, and framework, sharing what constituted excellence in BCM planning. He also discussed the latest best practices in CM, and how an organization could develop competencies for the purpose of training. Other topics discussed in Dr. Goh’s segment include Supply Chain Disaster in the Banking industry, cloud computing and its implications on Cybersecurity, as well as natural disasters.

Mr. Murari Kalyanaramani, Head of Security of Standard Chartered Bank, discussed the benefits that mobile technology and new strides in IT could benefit BCM and CM. His segment not only includes the huge impact that mobile technologies and social media (Facebook, Twitter, Whatsapp) can make in a disaster situation, but also touches on future, in-development, technologies that could help shape how we consider BCM planning, such as the drone Japan is developing to remotely pilot into nuclear sites to conduct surveillance.

BCM Institute would like to thank all members of BCM Institute and ISACA Malaysia Chapter for attending this session. Your support has greatly contributed to the success of Meet-the-Expert seminar Malaysia 2016.
