PHOENIX, ARIZONA – December 19, 2016 – MHA Consulting, Inc. (MHA), a leader in Business Continuity Planning, announced that its January webinar, Developing an Effective Disaster Recovery Plan, scheduled for January 11, 2017, will feature industry expert Richard Long, Senior Advisory Consultant at MHA Consulting. Richard will be discussing the development of Disaster Recovery and Technical Recovery Plans that will actually help you recover. Join us for a lively discussion on this important topic.

“At MHA, we are dedicated to helping our clients develop strategies, plans, and training that will assure the continued availability of services in the event of an unplanned outage,” said Richard Long. “I am looking forward to this opportunity to share some advice and practical solutions to developing DR plans that actually work.”

Description:  After you have created an effective recovery strategy, the ability to execute that strategy is of primary importance. Along with training and testing, the documentation and procedures required to perform a practical and usable technical recovery are essential. You may not think it is necessary, but a Disaster Recovery plan that facilitates an actual recovery (and not just some documentation no one is likely to use) is a major component to overall recovery capability and cannot be ignored. In this webinar we will discuss:

  • Why you need Disaster or Technical Recovery Plans
  • Necessary content and components of the plans
  • Strategies and techniques to develop the plans
  • Integration between Disaster or Technical Recovery Plans and Business Recovery Plans

Date & Time:  Wednesday, January 11, 2017 – 2 pm EST / 12 noon MST / 11 am Pacific PST
