To develop a strong BC/DR strategy, you start with the facts. A business impact analysis is, at its heart, a fact-finding mission. In the event of downtime, what would happen to your company? Do the BIA right and you’ll come to a deeper, more realistic understanding of your company’s current state of operations—and pave the way for creating a recovery strategy that actually works. Do it wrong and you’ll overwhelm your participants, alienate your IT department, confuse your senior management team, and – worst of all – devise recovery strategies, solutions and plans that won’t recover your business.
This is a BRMA member-only event; guests may make arrangements to attend by contacting the BRMA directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
