Speaker:  Kriss Adams, CSM, Business Continuuity International (BCI)

PROGRAM OVERVIEW: 
On the 13th anniversary of 9/11, what have we learned?  What have we forgotten?  Where are we now? 

Current events are filled with stories of disasters both natural and man-made.  How should we grade our organization's readiness to survive even a relatively minor disaster?  Pass, Fail, or Punt? 

Join us as a top business continuity expert provides a unique perspective of what businesses are doing, or should be doing, to maintain continuity through disaster recovery.
