For this year’s WCC 2012 in Singapore, Hans will be explaining on his take of overcoming failures and managing technology in a BCM point of view.  When asked him on what would be the highlight of his presentation, this is what he had to say;

“… sitting at 11 km altitude, en route from Amsterdam to Singapore, I think of all aspects of BCM required to bring me safely and effectively to Singapore. Now what would the single point of failure within this process? Back to my own IT (Defense) world in which continuity is a matter which (in) directly lives may depend on. I ask myself the same question even further, what is our single point of failure? We have a lot of techniques, double or triple running, people are involved and trained, and we have done much in the context of (business) continuity and crisis management.  In my personal opinion, but also mirrored with vendors, the answer is both simple and surprising…”
