St. Louis, MO (PRWEB) February 03, 2014
The School for Professional Studies at Saint Louis University will be hosting its 5th annual Criminal Justice and Security Management Panel Discussion on Thursday, March 6. This year’s topic is Business Continuity in Response to Crisis. A distinguished panel of industry experts discusses the important issues and considerations companies must address to carry on in a time of crisis.
In 2011, 124 people were killed and an estimated 8,000 buildings were destroyed in Joplin, MO. In 2013, over 70 million people were affected by the credit card and data breach at Target. These and other crises highlight the need to ensure business continuity in today's society. Whether the situation calls for emergency management, disaster recovery, or assurance of ongoing business operations, business continuity has never been more important than it is today.
