Companies today face an unprecedented number of exposures. The frequency and severity of weather-related events seem to be increasing, and reliance on a complex network of technology and supply chains is expanding. Both trends leave businesses vulnerable to a variety of existing and emerging risks. Managing these risks by developing a business continuity strategy is key to the survival of your organization.
The timing is now for company leaders, corporate managers and business owners everywhere to examine their awareness and plans to handle the full range of disasters, whether natural or man-made.
The Pennsylvania Chamber is pleased to be working with the Mid-Penn Chapter of the Association of Continuity Professionals to host this two day event (with an optional fundamentals course on April 9) on this crucial topic here in Pennsylvania with top-rated, highly experienced field professionals, and at an affordable price.
The optional two-hour 101 Business Continuity Introduction Course on April 9 is designed for companies that have been making new hires over the last year—this course is great for the newcomer, and business continuity veterans who would enjoy a refresher. There is no extra cost for the 101 Introduction.
Business disasters come in all shapes and sizes. Businesses must take steps to give themselves a better chance to reopen quickly, and be better prepared for the unexpected. If disaster strikes, is your business ready? Are your employees? Can your business remain up and running?
