NEW YORK and 'S-HERTOGENBOSCH, Netherlands, June 13, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- BWise, a NASDAQ OMX company and the leading provider of Enterprise Governance, Risk Management and Compliance (eGRC) software, will host a webinar on how to effectively manage through disruptive situations with Business Continuity Management (BCM) on June 20th.

With the rash of extreme weather events around the globe in recent years, it is evident senior management teams need an understanding of how well the organization is prepared for unforeseen incidents. The webinar will demonstrate how to effectively manage out-of-control situations with BWise® Business Continuity Management. BCM aligns both business continuity (BC) and disaster recovery (DR) activities with operational and enterprise risks during out-of-control situations. The webinar will be offered twice to accommodate global time zones. For more information on the webinar, please click here.

"Unforeseen incidents can drastically impact an organization's day-to-day business. No organization is immune to these crises with sometimes catastrophic consequences yet several recent studies have emphasized that BCM isn't as mature as it should be. However, enterprises are able to prepare themselves for these incidents by engaging a Business Continuity Plan" said Luc Brandts, BWise CTO, "By implementing a BCM plan organizations can proactively identify the impacts of operational disruption. Responding quickly and effectively to these disruptions will minimize the event's impact on the organization."

The BWise® GRC Platform can support your organization's end-to-end BCM needs, and put managers back in control of drastic situations often brought on by these seemingly frequent natural forces. The BWise platform supports and tracks preparatory activities such as completing a business impact analysis (BIA), developing BC/DR plans and creating BC/DR plan awareness amongst employees. During the potential incident, BWise ensures an integrated flow of information that aligns the activities specific to the organization's BCM needs with the operational and enterprise risks.
