Business owners’ ‘Road to Resilience’ starts at Continuity Centers

The road to disaster resilience can be a bumpy one for business owners, whether you've been your own boss for years or have just started. Later this month, Continuity Centers is holding an educational seminar that can help put you in the driver's seat for a smoother ride to true recoverability. 

"The seminar runs from 8 a.m. to noon on Nov. 16 at our Princeton offices."

In partnership with the Business Continuity Institute, CC is proud to present its inaugural Road to Resilience Conference, an instructional seminar geared for business owners and BC/DR professionals alike, focusing on the standards, technology and workplace recovery systems companies need to stay protected from catastrophes. Taking place on Nov. 16 at 500 College Road East in Princeton, New Jersey, the four-hour affair is not to be missed, as disaster recovery experts will be providing attendees with the tips, tricks and foresight they need to stay one step ahead of the unexpected.

Seminar begins at 8 a.m.
The proceedings kick off at 8 a.m., when attendees will have time to register, mix and mingle and partake in a traditional continental breakfast. An hour later, some of the industry's thought leaders, both from CC and BCI, will delve into the best disaster recovery practices that are universally applicable, meaning businesses in a variety of industries will find them useful. The presenters will provide a snapshot of the global threat environment, honing in on how incidents are no longer the exception, but the rule. 

Additionally, attendees will be able to parlay their proactive efforts and new found strategies into rewards, earning the Continuing Professional Education credits needed to become disaster recovery certified by the BCI. Since its inception, the BCI Continuous Professional Development Program enables individuals to develop the advanced skills they need to thrive and consistently improve. 

Overcome 'analysis paralysis'
Business continuity planning can sometimes seem like a massive undertaking, the likes of which can be so intimidating that it prevents decision-makers from making any efforts whatsoever at prevention, finding the task overwhelming. This type of "analysis paralysis" is one of the main reasons why a huge chunk of companies are forced to close permanently when disaster strikes. CC's experts will offer insight into how to avoid this common trap during the second half of the educational seminar. The first half will be covered by BCI, including the "BCI Horizon Scan Report."

"A roundtable discussion will conclude the event, providing attendees with some key takeaways."

The Road to Resilience Conference culminates with an hour-long roundtable discussion. This is the audience participation part of the program, where attendees are encouraged to talk about what efforts they've made at disaster recovery, what experiences they've had, how their preparation has paid off, and what, if anything, they would do differently if disaster pays another unwelcome visit. This will serve as an excellent brainstorming session that attendees are virtually guaranteed to walk away from with new-found appreciation for how security in all its forms – is a major business continuity issue. 

Failure to plan is a recipe for disaster. By attending the Road to Resilience, you will have the menu of resources needed to overcome adversity when and where it rears its ugly head. For more details about the event and how to register, click here.
