Today’s Climate: How to Increase Your Resiliency on a Limited Budget

(panel discussion) 

Moderator: Steve Susina, Director of Marketing, Laurus Technologies, Inc.
Panelists will include:

John Nootens, Director, Networking, American Medical Association

Jeff Roseman, Director, IS Infrastructure, Patterson Medical 
Kent Anderson, Sr Manager, Disaster Recovery, Discover Financial

Philip Bierdz, Manager, Infrastructure, Riverside Medical Center

and other professionals from IT departments sharing experiences and lessons learned.

In an effort to navigate through the current economy, many organizations are slashing costs across the board.  Is this the best approach when data is the lifeblood of your business? An added challenge is that no one can predict when a disaster will occur.  Although DR/BC funds should be a top priority, the reality is that many projects are competing for limited a limited IT budget. In DR/BC it can be difficult to prove ROI with absolute certainly.  There does not appear to be an obvious correlation between money invested and dollars earned. As a DR/BC professional, you know that the ROI is not having the business go under. However, you must be able to justify the dollar investment or the project will not move forward. 

In this session, you will learn sound strategies and tactics that will help you with these challenges from seasoned IT DR/BC professionals.


Conference price: $249 per person.


Each attendee will receive a certificate awarding 7 CPE credits for CISSP continuing education, in addition to 0.7 CEUs and 7 PDUs. CISSP is a registered certification mark of (ISC)˛, Inc.
