Detailed Agenda

Agenda topics subject to change

2:00 pm: Business Continuity Amidst COVID-19
Business continuity planning involves creating the capability to identify how unplanned disasters could disrupt critical business functions, and having a plan allows the organization to take steps to mitigate a disaster’s impact when people, systems, facilities, suppliers, and partners may be unavailable for an extended period. Learn top crisis management and crisis communications techniques, and offer member training and participation in simulation exercises to become skilled in responding to a disaster. Galvanize C-level champions who supports the goal of operational resiliency and create a team within the operations division. Why determining the best way to prepare crisis communications in order to document procedures is necessary to ensure consistent messaging is presented to internal and external stakeholders.

2:30 pm - Tools to Keep remote workers engaged and productive
Learn from this panel of operational experts on the best ways to deal with productivity and engagement within a digital work environment. Hear from top organizational experts on the best practices to reach operational targets and goals with an online workforce. Create a personal environment where people are recognized and create times in which you can be responsive to feedback and questions. Learn top execution strategies for regular check-ins and the best online-building techniques.

3:00 pm - Latest Hacker Strategies and Counters
Hackers have cost the global economy billions. Additionally, loss of trust of your users whose data was likely compromised. The costs are even harder to bear for small/medium businesses. Everything from attacks on internet banking customers, denial of service attacks, to ransomware viruses. These attacks are daily and varied. Join this session for best practices and leading trends developed to protect companies of all sizes.

3:30 pm - New in Disaster Recovery
IT disasters happen every day, in every company. With the right preparation, no one ever hears about them. Without it, these disasters can make the evening news. The first step is to define what your company cannot live without, otherwise known as a Business Impact Analysis (BIA). Once the mission critical applications have been identified, you must then agree upon what is acceptable downtime or the recovery time objective (RTO). The difference between zero downtime and fifteen minutes of downtime is significant from a cost perspective. This session will then cover the new tools available for the actual backup and disaster recovery process including testing. There's little doubt that bring-your-own-device (BYOD) adoption has profoundly changed the enterprise. By 2017, one-half of organizations will no longer provide devices to their employees, according to industry research. This is another banner year where personal devices are expected to make a bigger leap forward than ever and with the line between personal and business blurring, BYOD technology needs to be able to adapt with the changes ahead.

- Keep usage policies updated.
- Secure the end points.
- Track impact and set device ceilings.
- Plan security around the data/content/holes.

4:00 pm - Mobile and BYOD Security
