Mitigating Risk: How an Effective Enterprise Risk Management Framework can Improve the Outcome of Your DR/BC Planning

Paulette Hradnansky, Senior IT Director, Home and Networks Mobility, Motorola

Catastrophes over the last several years have caused most organizations to reassess their investments in Disaster Recovery and Business Continuity Planning.  Some organizations may have overspent while others may have invested too little.  By taking a risk-management approach to business continuity planning, IT professionals can determine what minimum countermeasures and response procedures are vital to meet your organization's business needs.

Topics that will be covered include: 

  • How to design an effective risk management framework in the context of business continuity planning
  • How to apply a business impact analysis (BIA)
  • How to use the results of the BIA to understand where your dollars should be spent
  • How to determine the ROI to management to justify the right amount of investment for your DR/BC plan

Ensuring Business Continuity: Recommendations for Recovering Quickly from PC Disasters

Jamie Cerra, Senior Systems Engineer, Persystent Technologies

IT organizations have traditionally focused on improving insight and control over their company's core server and network infrastructure. Today, that focus is broadening to include personal computers (PCs), which are, arguably, an organization's most important employee productivity tool. When computers are down, so is business productivity and continuity. How can IT help end users to recover quickly from PC disasters that occur either in house or offsite?

 

In this session, attendees will learn more about:
