  • Business Continuity: Separating Myth from Reality

    In today’s demanding business environment, organizations must implement viable solutions to maintain normal business operations and workforce productivity during any disruption. Many organizations face the challenge of not knowing how to begin creating or improving their Business Continuity Plan (BCP). Traditionally, the focus of a BCP has been to protect and recover IT infrastructure. However, it is essential for any plan to address the human resources side of the business as well.

    In this webinar, IT Weapons will address some of the myths surrounding business continuity planning, and how to effectively begin providing a framework to develop and implement a Business Continuity Plan. An effective plan will protect both personnel and systems against any potential disruption.

    By attending this webinar, you will learn:

    ·         The importance of incorporating both information technology and business strategies in a BCP.

    ·         Ways to effectively communicate amongst personnel in an emergency.

    ·         How to access applications and data during a disruption.

    ·         Alternate workspace solutions and how they can be implemented.

    ·         The technologies that can provide redundancy, data protection, high availability and disaster recovery.

    ·         The value of training, testing, and ongoing maintenance of your BCP.
