In a Pandemic, Will That Old Plan for Hurricanes, Tornadoes and Ransomware Still Work?
Date: May 19, 2020 at 10am PDT / 1pm EDT
Let's face it. How many organizations had business continuity plans that encompassed a pandemic that also forced a global economic shutdown and required widespread government bailouts? Had to have been a vanishingly small number. Yet that's where we are.
Here's the thing, all of those far more run-of-the-mill, short-term disasters that you've table-topped – hurricanes, floods, wildfires, tornadoes, ransomware – they're still ready to strike. Getting the workforce safely up-and-running was clearly priority one. Now it's time to make sure you're still prepared for more standard business interruption events with that widely distributed workforce.
This session will cover:
- How the shift to a partial or fully remote workforce changes fundamental assumptions of business continuity plans.
- Ways that the distributed workforce creates different risks that affect DR/BC planning.
- How cloud backup, cloud disaster recovery and disaster recovery as a service (DRaaS) can fill some incremental gaps now.
- What a comprehensive cloud disaster recovery plan should include now that it might not have required before COVID-19.
Attend this session for concrete guidance on shoring up your existing business continuity plans for the mid-pandemic enterprise.
Plus, as part of your registration for this session you can participate in the other two sessions as part of this free half-day Enterprise Cloud Disaster Recovery Summit.
