Roundtable Discussion: Lessons Learned from Superstorm Sandy

Hurricane Sandy was the most destructive hurricane of the 2012 Atlantic hurricane season. It was also the second-costliest hurricane in United States history. As we come reflect on the one year anniversary, Oct. 22, 2013, we need to ask some questions from the point of view of using technology to run a business: Business Continuity Program, how much is enough?  How much is too much?

Business continuity is vital to business success, and in today's interconnected world, virtually every aspect of a company's operation is vulnerable to disruption. Some risks could take your business offline for days, but in a competitive environment, even minutes of downtime could prove fatal. So, how do you determine the resiliency and recovery requirements of your business? How do you identify and integrate critical business and IT priorities into a robust continuity and resiliency program?

Come and join us for a roundtable discussion led by Mike Waters, Business Continuity and Resiliency Services at IBM, talk about others are doing to ensure near-continuous business operations or to understand fully what the business can tolerate.

5 Cambridge Park Drive, Cambridge, MA 02140

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
