The best way forward is an efficient disaster recovery solution that helps respond with speed and agility, while empowering businesses to maintain continuous operations during an outage. Such a solution also ensures availability of critical systems, reduces revenue loss, and protects brand reputation. : Emergency Planning, Business Continuity Planning and Crisis Management.
Many companies today have a full Business Continuity Plan and believe that it will also serve as their Emergency Management plan in a major event that disables not only their environment but also the area surrounding the business. Many companies have a Public Relations plan but not a crisis plan to be used in the event of a situation that is life threatening such as when hostages are involved. 

In order for a company to be truly prepared all three plans have to flow into each other effortlessly. This presentation will cover the importance of getting management buy in. Of combining the plans in such a way that there is a clear incident management structure. Crisis planning covers situations such as disgruntled employees, anthrax scares, hostage situations etc. Although very serious, the event does not affect the whole company and does not affect the structure or data. 

An Emergency Plan covers situations such as Ice alerts, hurricanes, earthquakes as well as terrorist attacks. Although some past knowledge will exist for most emergency events, action plans have to be developed for the unexpected. Teams that can support the staff must be clearly defined and trained. This will also include some government liaison as well as community support. 

In this webinar, Michael Redmond, CEO of Redmond Worldwide, Recovery expert will discuss how to identify the crucial elements that need to be considered when developing an effective disaster recovery plan. The webinar will also help understand how organizations can safeguard crucial data, maintain productivity, and limit financial losses during an outage. 

Why should you Attend:
Natural disasters, Technology disasters, Manmade Disasters, Terrorism are common terms today. No company is immune from the effects of a disaster. Is your company prepared? Are you sure that your company will remain in business if a disaster affects it? 

The fortunes of businesses today are inevitably linked to IT infrastructure, critical data, sustainable workforce, supply chain logistics and integral systems. Due to the constant risk of adverse events such as internal and external security threats, natural disasters, sophisticated hacking, and the like, organizations need to increasingly focus on developing a resilient disaster recovery plan. Most organizations tend to create a disaster recovery plan based on past events, and consider the IT infrastructure, the physical workplace, and human resources in isolation.

The interconnectedness of risk however can nullify the effectiveness of even the most expensive disaster recovery plans. Integrated risk management hence has to be considered as a core element of a disaster recovery plan. Such an approach must include identifying vulnerabilities that increase risk exposure, and putting in place cost-effective safeguards that can provide organizations with reliable decision support. Further, an effective plan should outline the steps that an organization will undertake to ensure the safety of employees and the public, as well as safeguard valuable enterprise and IT assets. It must provide a roadmap that extends beyond business survival to ensure that businesses keep their projects and profits intact.
