Disaster Recovery & Business Continuity
on a Budget
Chicago, IL | June 24, 2010
Disasters -- man-made and natural -- can happen at any time, and our IT Leaders Circle Members have told us that even with limited budgets, they still must ensure their Disaster Recovery and Business Continuity plans are sound. In fact, short-changing your DR / BC preparedness may result in a disaster of your own making.
This seminar will give you the insights and information you need to ensure your DR / BC plans remain viable, despite the economic challenges. You'll learn how companies are balancing cost control and developing DR / BC programs that deliver.
Join Top IT Executives from Health Care Service Corp., GS1 US, Hub Group, and Jones Lang LaSalle...
And Get Their Secret Tips on leveraging:
- Business Interruption and Extra Expense Insurance
- Cloud computing to offset costly DR infrastructure
- Server vitualization to automate disaster recovery capabilities, and desktop virtualization to help manage workforce continuity planning
- Unified communication interfaces to support communication during a disaster
