Vital Records Identification and Protection and Disaster Recovery

Does your company have a business recovery plan? Do you have one for your records? We all know disaster can strike at any time and in many forms and other than your human capital, your records are the most important part of your business.  Without them you likely won't be able to operate your business.

This session is designed to give you an in-depth look at how to develop your Vital Records plan and choose appropriate protection methods for your organization’s assets.  We’ll also talk about the alignment needed between your company’s business continuity, disaster and IT plans and tips for getting everyone on the same page. Other topics will include how to complete a risk assessment, developing a Disaster Recovery plan and a review of real world scenarios involving issues surrounding disasters.
