About the Conference
The COVID-19 pandemic presents a serious threat to people, businesses and economies across the world. During times of crisis, business operations—the intelligence engine of an organization—are more important than ever. Business continuity and disaster recovery plans are being tested by rapidly evolving challenges, such as travel restrictions, and as large-scale remote working becomes a reality.
The need for a disaster recovery business continuity plan is becoming more critical as the enterprise adjusts to the business disruptions caused by the coronavirus. The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) reports, “Roughly 40% to 60% of small businesses never reopen their doors following a disaster.” However, this does not have to happen when a proper disaster recovery and business continuity plan is in place.
Business continuity planning is a component of building business resilience in normal times and is especially critical in cases of large disasters. For businesses to survive, they must be able to adapt their operations to the new environment.
