Program
Natural disasters, cybersecurity concerns, and terrorist events in recent years have led to increased scrutiny to ensure that businesses are prepared to sufficiently recover from interruptions. Regulators and customers are demanding evidence of preparedness that has been tested and proven.

In this roundtable, we will discuss the areas of a business continuity program that may require enhancement based on recent audit feedback, changes in industry standards, revisions to regulatory guidelines, and lessons learned. We will explore the top five “must haves” required for a good Disaster Recovery solution. Lastly, we will examine some of the challenges facing IT today and how those can be overcome with a modern approach to Disaster Recovery, including the combination of network, data center, software, and the concept of leveraging public/private cloud.
