Come join your fellow continuity professionals and participate in a presentation on “Understanding Regional Resiliency Efforts and the Ripple Effect in the Bay Area by Dr. Quintus Jett, Assistant Professor, Rutgers University and Member of Resilient America Roundtable Committee on March 14, 2017! We are in a unique geographical area in the Bay Area. Our decisions before, during and after crises affect our organizations, our people and the public at large. Data, or information, is collected and used that drives our decisions. How data is collected may greatly influence your decisions! Do you have to analyze data or reports and make informed decisions? Do you rely on information from outside sources and understand the purpose of the background information collected? Learn to navigate data sources and avoid building or relying on "silos of resiliency" and what the affects are to your local response efforts. Come join Dr. Quintus Jett as he navigates you through his experience gathering, reading and reporting data on resiliency at the local, area and regional level, and how analyzing data correctly affects your organization, its partners, and the Bay Area as a whole.
