Join us as Marie Gallanar shares lessons learned, and leaders’ experiences and new perspectives on business continuity planning and disaster recovery.  In this workshop attendees will be asked to answer questions on a worksheet and share their answers with the group.

Learning Objectives:

1. The type of events to consider when drafting a Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery Plan.

2. Key elements to consider when drafting a Plan.

3. Key stakeholders that should be involved in preparing a Plan.
