This is the first segment of a five-part series in which we countdown the reasons to attend the Fifth Annual Open House and CPE Event hosted by Continuity Centers and Agility Recovery.
The business continuity and disaster recovery segments of operational and performance management have become a bit more pressing in the past few years. Natural disasters, man-made disruptions, cyber threats and other causes of downtime have not only become more prevalent and damaging, they have also started to play a more fundamental role in general operations for most companies.
Not so long ago, there were plenty of industries that did not have such an immense reliance upon technologies, but this is simply not the case anymore, as virtually every entity in the private sector now requires access to networks, data storage, advanced communications and other systems to function normally. As such, many business owners are likely thinking about investing in better business continuity and disaster recovery assets, and this is our No. 5 reason why leaders should attend the Contingency Planning Exchange meeting and Open House event hosted by Continuity Centers and Agility Recovery.
Smarter investment decisions
One of the more difficult and critical aspects of BC/DR strategic overhauls is aligning investments with unique needs and objectives. When a firm takes an entirely cookie-cutter approach to these matters, it acts as an indication that there simply is not enough knowledge in the organization related to these areas, then provides the first step toward failing to actually protect the company despite the higher volume of investments.
As a business owner, you need to understand the broad and intricate aspects of BC and DR, and the Fifth Annual Open House hosted by Continuity Centers and Agility Recovery and CPE event, will instill this knowledge in a more specialized fashion. Since experts in the areas of continuity and recovery will be speaking, attendees get a first-hand perspective on what need to be the guiding lights for investment decisions.
Business leaders who are thinking about investing more into BC/DR will also gain an edge from attending this event due to the hands-on experiences of activities involved therein. Going through these simulation-based activities will illuminate the unique and specific needs of their companies with greater accuracy and intensity, making it less likely that a stone will be left unturned or money will be allocated toward unnecessary or irrelevant expenditures.
So, for this No. 5 part of the countdown, you should attend the Open House and CPE to better guide you through decisions related to increased investments in BC/DR. Come back soon for more!
