Secure 360 (Speaking Session with Ron LaPedis and Simon Puleo)

October 11, 2017

When physical or cyber disaster strikes, how will your organization respond? Do you have documented and tested plans when critical infrastructure fails, hackers take over or when lives are at stake? Disruptions in services are costly. According to a recent Forrester survey, most businesses say 72% of their applications are business and mission critical. For every hour, minute and even second a system is down, you face productivity loss and loss of customer confidence. A recent eWeek survey puts average downtime at $5,600 a minute—and Amazon estimates a 100MS delay = $6.79M. And it is not only IT failure; you face physical threats like the heartbreaking 2015 San Bernardino shooting. This workshop helps business continuity leaders and security professionals identify risks, learn to work together to document the steps required to make the right decisions, and practice incident response through several “live-fire” simulations.
