Episode 3: Agile or Fragile – Building Resilience in a Post-Virus World

As the coronavirus continues to threaten lives and livelihoods, large organizations are still searching for ways to maintain continuity and support the economy. This week Jennifer sits down with BAE’s Global Chief Information Security Officer, JC Dodson to talk about how to build resiliency and handle the unexpected ripple effects of COVID-19. Together they tackle difficult questions including: 

How has coronavirus changes executive visibilty into risk and supply chain management?

Jennifer and JC give an overview of executive involvement and interest in supply chain risk pre and post-Covid-19. Risk managers may never have a stronger case for beefing up their programs and increasing board engagement. Learn how to leverage that increased engagement into actionable steps that drive resilience and shepherd your organization through this unprecedented crisis. 

When is globalization not a benefit?

It’s difficult to argue that globalization hasn’t benefited large enterprises, but COVID-19 has drawn its potential negative consequences into sharp relief. Jennfier and JC review the potential pitfalls of globalization and discuss how businesses can start realigning their supply chains to mitigate the possible damage. 

How many tiers of our supply chain do you need to understand?

As businesses continue to reel from the aftershocks of sub-tier supplier disruption, many organizations are rexamining their visibility into their sub-tier suppliers, the entities beyond the third party. Jennifer and JC discuss how far down you need to go to truly understand your risk exposure.
