How to Mature Your Capability from Disaster Recovery to Operational Resiliency

David Chapa, CTE, office of the CTO, EVault

Business resilience is the next step forward from continuity. Resilience must encompass business as well as IT operations. It can be thought of as spanning six specific areas: strategy, enterprise, processes, data and applications, technology, facilities and security.

In this session, attendees will learn how to take their respective organizations from continuity to resiliency including the unique implications of managing each of the areas mentioned above.

Pressman

How to Leverage Technology to Integrate Security, Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery

Jack Pressman, Managing Director, Cyber Innovation Labs

Many of the risk BC/DR practitioners are now facing include cyber threats that have the risk of causing disruption, damage and disaster to overall IT operations. How should your plan evolve to effectively integrate security into the mix?

In this session attendees will learn sound techniques to build a comprehensive plan around technology.

How to Optimize the Value of Service-Centric Approach to IT Disaster Recovery

Ken Giden, Sr. Technical Engineer, Coraid

In this session attendees will learn how to structure a tiered approach to business continuity/disaster recovery where business IT services are provided a quantifiable level of recovery protection appropriate for the business impact of each area. Guidance will be provided as to which types of technologies are appropriate for the specific services.

How to Avoid the 7 Deadly Sins of Data Protection

Robert Osborne, Director, Enterprise Technologists, Dell Software Group

In this session attendees will learn steps they can take to methods that can use to effectively prioritize backup and protect critical applications. Specific guidance will be given as to how practitioners can and should avoid the pitfalls of data protection.

Chapa

3:00pm-4:00pm

Cloud Recovery: How to Integrate Cloud-Based Disaster Recovery into your Company’s Existing Business Continuity Strategy

David Chapa, CTE, office of the CTO, EVault

Moving data and applications into the cloud can create great efficiencies for enterprises. But going down this path can also add complexity in disaster recovery/business continuity initiatives.

Recent industry studies conclude that organizations face the following challenges in a cloud environment:

  • The ability to control failovers and make resources more highly available
  • Backup being hampered by resource and storage constraints
  • Too many tools, too little control
  • Downtime perception gap – outage can actually be twice as long as it is perceived to be

Areas that will be covered include:

Data Center Infrastructure, Data Backup, Redundancy of Network and Hardware, Overall Processes, Change and Problem Management, Information Security, etc.

4:00pm-5:00pm

Panel Discussion: How to Deliver Risk Intelligence to Senior Leadership for DR/BC Planning

Moderator:
Clint Wyckoff, Senior Systems Engineer, Veeam Software
Panelists:
Jeremy Kubik, Director IT Operations, CompuSystems, Inc.
Lucy Risner Devermann, Senior Business Continuity Analyst, Diebold
Nayan Thakkar, Director of Network Infrastructure, National Restaurant Association
Eric Stenstrom, Director of Information Technology, Draper and Kramer
Joe Cannella, Director, Information Systems, Tempel Steel
and other professionals from IT departments

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.
Before you ask for that investment you need to have solid relationships with the executives you plan on approaching. How should you start building and/or strengthening those relationships? How can you leverage Risk Intelligence to move your plan forward?

In this session attendees will learn from a panel of seasoned DR/BC professionals as to how they built relationships that accelerated their approval for funding.







Conference Price: $279.00 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.
