The Disaster Recovery & Business Continuity Planning (BCP) process systemically identifies critical business processes, develops recovery strategies, and helps your company stay in business in the event of a severe disruption. This seminar will spotlight the importance of a Business Continuity Plan and the immense impact it can have on company’s bottom line.
“Everyone believes an emergency happens to the next guy, or thinks I will wait until I am affected, then deal with it” said Grant Thornton LLP Business Advisory Services Practice Leader, Norbert Trocki, Jr. “What everyone does not realize is that what happens to them affects not only their business, but the community, their employees and families. Keep in mind, there are no quick fixes, and if you are not prepared at that moment to deal with the emergency with training, education and a solid/tested recovery plan, you are in big trouble.”
“Disaster Recovery and Business Continuity Planning is a fundamental issue for Business. This is necessary for companies to survive today.” said Neil Adelman, Chief Executive Officer of BlueBridge. “This seminar is a fine example of how our experts highlight the many contingencies companies face today and the planning that is required surviving them.”
