IBM – Business Continuity and Resiliency Services

January 29, 2008 – Vancouver, British Columbia

What would be the effect on your business in the event of a fire in your data centre, a significant power outage…or something more serious? The dangers are real. Organizations face threats from many sources, ranging from disgruntled employees and accidents on premises, to terrorism, organized crime, pandemics and natural disasters. A sound Business Continuity and Recovery Strategy (BCRS) can minimize the impact of an incident. An effective strategy takes into account the type of threats your organization faces and their potential impact, and balances these against the investment required to realistically limit their effect on your business.
This session included a stimulating discussion on how to evaluate your organization’s business continuity status and give you practical guidance to improve your readiness to deal with disaster.
