Planning and Running a Combination BC/DR Test
Denny Hodge, BC Manager, Aegon Global Technology
Regulatory scrutiny is increasing on Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery as evidenced by the increase in audits, both internal and external, of BCM programs globally. Of particular interest seems to be the integration of the various "pillars" of Business Continuity Management (Emergency Management, Crisis Management, Business Continuity Planning, Disaster Recovery Planning), particularly BC and DR. In this session, we'll review a recent combined exercise held with an Aegon business unit in the Netherlands.
Denny Hodge is the Business Continuity Manager for Aegon Global Technology (AGT), the global IT organization for the Aegon Group of Companies. In this role he directs all facets of the Business Continuity Planning program for AGT, as well as the other Aegon business units that purchase the BC service from the global IT organization. Additionally, he serves as the Back-Up Emergency Operations Officer for the Transamerica Crisis Management Team and is a member of the Emergency Operations Team. He is also a member of the Aegon Global Business Disruption Working Group.
