Why Should You Attend:

Considering information systems are generally critical to enhancing productivity, it is imperative deployed IT provide availability with service responsiveness meeting user utilization demands, even during crisis situations. Enterprise susceptibility as well as IT operational resiliency impact speedy and systematic redress for fulfilling efficiency, effectiveness, availability, and compliance requirements. Furthermore, neither business nor IT resides within static environments. Thus, environmental dynamics can generate changes altering system activities that require timely response and restoration to ensure continuous service delivery.

Threats to an entity’s existence manifest in diverse forms, including disruptions, emergencies, crises or disasters. Any one of these incidents or events can jeopardize data processing services sustaining mission critical operations. When business integrated information systems are unavailable, efficiency is diminished, effectiveness is eroded, compliance is hindered, and employees are idled. As a result, organizations should regularly examine their business continuity, disaster recovery, as well as back-up plans to ensure adequate operational requirements forecasting for service restoration.

Business continuity has been generally defined as a comprehensive managed effort to prioritize key business processes identifying significant threats to normal operations that permit planning strategies for ensuring effective and efficient organizational responses to challenges arising during and after a crisis. Consequently, business continuity planning encompasses processes for developing advance responses to service interruptions in such a manner that critical business functions continue at expected levels. Sub-categorically, disaster recovery planning is normally ranked as a key business continuity component referring to technological aspects of advance planning and organizing necessary to minimize potential losses and ensure critical business functionality if catastrophic circumstances materialize. An effective business continuity capability is essential.

Various resources that can contribute to the remediation process should be identified as business continuity enablement factors. These resources -- including essential personnel (and their roles and responsibilities), information, applications, and infrastructure -- should be documented in a plan demonstrating commitment to continuity.
