Because business continuity requirements constantly change, organizations must continually examine their operations and service-level expectations. Business Continuity, Disaster Recovery, Information Security and Emergency Management professionals should challenge themselves to understand and reduce risk while increasing business resilience.

As we all know, data stored on our company or agency systems is viewed as a strategic asset. As the value of the data increases, the reliability and quality of storage solutions must be considered. There is no question that storage is the key technical component of all business continuity solutions. Another key component is workforce recovery. What are the mission-critical functions, which employees do those functions and how and where will the work get done if there is an event/disaster.

Many organizations—along with stakeholders and regulatory authorities—are focusing on operational risk assessment. One key area of focus is information systems and data protection. For organizations struggling with the issues of disaster recovery and business continuity, ConSec offers insights through its plenary and breakout education sessions.

This year’s conference will show how risk management concepts can be applied to help organizations understand the salient issues, identify the key characteristics, and respond to the fundamental problems of business continuity. The 2008 ConSec conference sessions will provide real, business success stories and discuss how success actually has been achieved in today’s real-world work challenges. ConSec will address risk management and traditional vulnerabilities, and offer an overview regarding pitfalls to avoid. Speakers will discuss risk management approaches that can reduce uncertainty.
