Presented By Al Berman, Disaster Recovery Institute International
This Session is no rehash of things BCP past. You know, that presentation promising to be about what's new, and yet the first slide you see is entitled "The History of BCP." This is NOT that! Attend this session to learn about the important issues and developments impacting our profession (and our world!) right now. And while we won't be covering the past, the present and future are fair game.
We'll explore realities and trends in the supply chain, including strategies currently being implemented by Japanese manufacturers. We'll talk cloud computing, as well as cloud concerns like security, reliability, fear, and regulatory compliance. And speaking of regulations, we'll also get into standards, regulations, and laws...Oh my! So, select this session if a frank discussion of what's now and what's next is what interests you.
