Disaster Recovery and Mitigation for Projects and PMs workshop on October 20, 2018

Is your business prepared when Disaster hits?

According to research companies lose an average of $80,000 to $90,000 for every hour of downtime during a disaster.  80% of companies that suffer a major disaster and don’t have any form of contingency planning go into liquidation within 18 months of declaring a disaster.  Research also indicates only 40% or less of SMBs have a comprehensive disaster recovery plan in place.


In this class we will cover

  • -   The Difference between Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery
  • -   The Five Best Practices for Disaster Recovery Plans
  • -   Common Mistakes in Disaster Recovery Plans
  • -   Common Risks to Application Availability
  • -   The first six steps you need when Declaring a Disaster
  • -   A real life scenario of a disaster recovery project plan that was used and implemented during a recent disaster
  • -   Attendees will walk away with the knowledge and outline of a Disaster Recovery runbook and how to begin and approach their own disaster recovery and/or business continuity projects.
