  • Planning Assumptions: What are they and why do we need them? Recorded: Jul 23 2015 19 mins
    Molly Latham, Consultant
    Realistic planning assumptions are an important element in a business continuity program. Why? They enable the planning team to identify the parameters they’re expecting to encounter following a disaster. They aren’t “pie-in-the-sky” wish lists but rather they’re the planner’s best guess about the conditions that will exist. Smart assumptions are usually unfavorable conditions, such as the lack of electric power or the unavailability of key people. Not-so-smart planning assumptions rely on best-case conditions that are probably not realistic.

  • DRaaS and Cloud Backup: Can you secure your company's assets with Hybrid Cloud? Recorded: Jul 23 2015 48 mins
    Eric Sansonny, General Manager, Aruba.IT
    Ensuring Business continuity and managing risks is becoming more and more crucial for companies heavily relying on technical infrastructure to run their business such as CRM, ERP, CMS, accounting, big data and more.

    Todays's economy cannot be conceived without the use of such systems, more and more connected and presumably accessible from everywhere.

    Data is now the key asset of any company, and needs to be protected the same way as everyone protects their assets.

    But the reality is far from this. So many companies are "saving" money by using non-redundant infrastructures, networks or servers, and often have to experience the worst scenario to start digging into Disaster Recovery, but it's already too late.

    So join Eric Sansonny as he looks at Disaster Recovery as a Service and Cloud Backups to see if the solution lies there.
  • Hyper-converged BCDR: Using local, remote & cloud-based backups for resiliency Recorded: Jul 23 2015 29 mins
    Wim Vandebroeck, Director of Service, Nutanix
    The vast majority of applications today are under protected – or completely unprotected – making enterprises vulnerable to data loss or downtime during disasters. Legacy data protection and DR solutions, while still relevant to certain classes of workloads, have failed to adapt to the needs of modern virtualized applications and infrastructure.

    Join Wim Vandebroeck as he explains how to use local, remote, and cloud-based backups to achieve high-levels of availability and resiliency in the event of component failure, node failure, rack failure, or an entire datacenter outage.

  • Business Resiliency: Latest Thinking and Trends Recorded: Jul 22 2015 49 mins
    Howard Mannella, Managing Principal, Alternative Resiliency Services Corp
    Business Continuity! Disaster Recovery! We’ve all heard these terms, often used interchangeably. It seems there are more and more so-called “experts” out there… and more and more ‘noise’. This critical topic does not have to be complicated or confusing. Come share the perspectives of a pragmatic global thought leader who’s not just talked about it but who’s owned a global program, and whose plans have been proven in actual events. There is value for the experienced practitioner as well as the non-expert executive or manager who has to understand the concepts in plain English. Concepts covered include:

    •How Business Continuity, Disaster Recovery, Crisis Management and related topics are all part of holistic Business Resiliency – the ability of an organization to withstand stress from impact – and how they are interrelated
    •A brief history lesson of where it’s been and where it’s going, to chart the trajectory from the current path
    •What it is, and more importantly, what it is not, for example it’s not ‘Insurance’ and it’s not ‘The Big “Code Red” Binder’ (in fact, it’s not a binder at all!)
    •How to understand and communicate the value in business terms not ‘scary-speak’
    •The essential parts of a comprehensive program and what “Good” looks like for all of them
    •Some best practices that even experienced planners sometimes ignore
    •What does the future look like?
  • Minimizing Risk with One, Automated Disaster Recovery Solution Recorded: Jul 22 2015 45 mins
    Mike Gelhar, Systems Engineer, Long Term Care Group
    Many organizations have complex BC/DR plans consisting of several products, requiring multiple people to be present to execute the recovery, should disaster strike. This was the case at Long Term Care Group. They were using an orchestration tool with storage-based replication. Executing a DR test was becoming more and more difficult and confidence in their plan was fading.

    Zerto Virtual Replication provides continuous block-level replication and fully automated and orchestrated failover, recovery, failback and DR testing. Mike Gelhar, Systems Engineer at Long Term Care Group knew they had found the solution they needed to deliver robust BC/DR while greatly reducing risk.

    - Reduce risk with an automated solution that anyone can execute
    - DR Testing ensures recovery through reports and provides the opportunity to make adjustments in the plan
    - Maximize the investment with a solution that can simplify migrations and maintenance of the environment
    - Installation is complete in one hour with no configuration changes so the carefully architected production environment is not changed, further reducing risk
  • Creating a Culture of Continuity: Business Continuity Planning & Risk Management Recorded: Jul 22 2015 49 mins
    Eric Kretz, Director, Continuity of Operations (COOP) Division, National Continuity Programs (NCP)
    Continuity planning is simply the good business practice of ensuring the execution of essential functions through all circumstances, and it is a fundamental responsibility of public institutions and private entities responsible to their stakeholders. Continuity planning should not be a separate and compartmentalized function performed by independent cells of a few planners in each organization. Organizations must fully integrate continuity into all aspects of an organization’s daily operations, thus creating a “culture of continuity.”

    The COOP presentation will:

    1. Provide an understanding of Continuity Planning and Risk Management,
    2. Explain the importance of a viable Continuity capability,
    3. Emphasize the need for a viable Continuity capability in all organizations that enable organizations to continue their essential functions across a broad spectrum of emergencies.

    In addition to providing an overview of Continuity of Operations, the COOP presentation will also:

     Educate Federal, State, territorial, tribal, local government jurisdictions, private sector organizations, and emergency management practitioners on the importance of integrating Continuity into daily operations, functions, plans, and mission areas.
     Emphasize the Federal Government’s Policy requiring Federal agencies to be prepared for unpredictable threats such as earthquakes, accidents, sabotage, and terrorism. 
     Discuss the importance for State, territorial, tribal, local government jurisdictions, private sector organizations to be prepared for unpredictable disruption of business operations. 
     Provide States, territories, tribes, local government jurisdictions, private sector organizations, and businesses with assistance, guidance, knowledge, networking, resources, and tools needed to succeed.
