Track: Tech Talk Roundtables
Day: Friday

This Roundtable Discussion will begin with assuring the audience has a common understanding of two terms that are in many instances used interchangeably.  The terms are: “business continuity” or “BC” and “disaster recovery” or “DR”.   

Panel participants will discuss the elements of a successful BC / DR strategy, including such considerations as:

  • Who needs to be involved;
  • Assessing vulnerabilities and risks;
  • Establishing agreement on “recovery point” and “recovery time” standards;
  • Data backups and data recovery;
  • Cloud vs. non-cloud solutions;
  • Defense against cybersecurity incidents; and
  • Executing the BC / DR Plan

Attendees will have the opportunity to engage the panel in specific areas of concerns and receive real-time, practical guidance from these IT experts. 

Will you be ready when bad things happen that threaten your business, your data, and your future?  Be prepared to survive—when bad things happen.  Attend this Roundtable Discussion.

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.
