Why am I really doing DR?

Speaker: david grimes
Company: Navisite
Track: Functional Security
Day: Friday
Room: Seneca
Time: 11:45 - 12:30

Everyone has to have a DR plan, but are we really building for the right disasters? While we have visions of protecting ourselves from earthquakes and tornadoes, disasters are more likely to be the result of ransomware or user errors during routine maintenance, and DR plans themselves are mostly executed to meet regulatory requirements. The session will address the realities of DR requirements and how solutions should be built to meet them.

We have come to NY Tech Summit for four years now and my team and I get a good variety of technical, business, and strategic sessions to complement our work objectives. I like that there is a balance of end users, consultants, and vendors to present and facilitate the sessions. The interaction is candid and engaging, but not a sales pitch. Being a regional conference helps, it is the right amount of time and location for a couple days to reenergize my team and refocus on our objectives. There seems to be quite a bit of peer discussion with a smaller conference, which I like.
