Free Webinar: Business Continuity Meets Risk Management

Business Continuity Meets Risk Management: Building Bridges and Adding Value

Join DRI International for an exploration of the intersection between two key disciplines -- business continuity (BC) and risk management (RM). We'll cover the BC/RM relationship within organizations, how BC professionals can add value to risk programs, and how to best interact with your risk counterparts. You'll also learn about DRI International's new Risk Management for the Business Continuity Professional course and the associated certification.

The free, hour-long webinar will take place Thursday, July 10, from 2:00 - 3:00 p.m. EDT. Certified professionals can earn one CEAP for attending.
