Are You Prepared for Your Worst Scenario? When Disaster Strikes! (NWN)

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Most private sector organizations deal with disasters by running their business in a somewhat degraded state. But for governments disaster situations are when constituents may need and depend onyour services the most. Some government services become more active during disasters; some only become active when there is a disaster. A one size fits all business continuity and disaster recovery plan may not address your specific needs. Disaster readiness includes ensuring that the business needs are met by the disaster recovery plans and associated technology. It also includes ensuring that these disaster recovery plans integrate with emergency management and continuity of operations. This requires consensus between stakeholders with regard to both business needs and technological capabilities. It also requires processes and governance to ensure that when changes are made to IT technology or government services, disaster recovery plans are updated. Join us as we discuss howto integrate IT disaster recovery plans and broader business continuity plans to ensure that critical government services are available during a disaster.
