Ask the Experts: How to Prepare for Disruption, Business Continuity – May 20

A successful and resilient plan begins with understanding the story of your business.”

Business Continuity Awareness Week is an annual event that highlights the importance of planning to make organizations resilient and recoverable in the face of disruptive events.  Business Continuity centres on preserving organizations of all sizes and purposes in the face of disruption and disaster. 

Our guest speaker Abraham Binder will provide an overview of Business Continuity and then lead an engaging discussion with two industry experts.

During this panel discussion you will discover simple ways for small to medium sized organizations prepare for outages and disruptions.  Planning is about more than the actions to be taken when things go wrong.  Business Continuity Planning outlines the organization itself as the object of the planning, not the disruption itself.
