-Training and education before an incident occurs, so that individuals are empowered to make choices as to how they will react when confronted with an active shooter incident, as well as how to best coordinate with law enforcement and other pertinent stakeholders on preparedness measures for an active shooter incident.
-The importance of emergency notification, and having the tools and procedures in place so that they work seamlessly in emergencies like active shooter incidents that require immediate attention.

This webinar topic isn't meant to scare you. It's not meant to make you feel guilty either. But, it is meant to help you--by forcing you to think about your important business assets and a recovery plan.
Disaster is an ugly word. It's not something that you think about everyday. It's something you read about or hear about in the news that affects someone else. But you should think about it--and you should be concerned if you don't have a contingency plan for business-as-usual operations after a catastrophic event.
Especially in the past couple of years, Americans have been exposed to increasing national disasters, including floods, tornados, hurricanes and wildfires. And that doesn't begin to speak to fires, break-ins and robberies, etc.
The question is "could your business survive any of these types of events"?
Recent University of Texas research suggests that only 6% of companies could survive a catastrophic data loss, and that 43% would never re-open, and of those that do re-open--51% would be forced to close within 2 years. Plus, Gartner Research estimates that only 35% of America's small/medium businesses have a comprehensive disaster recovery plan in place.

Maintaining a fully manned and dynamic workforce is a key component of military readiness. While much of the force readiness conversation is focused on the warfighters themselves, equally important is developing and sustaining the talent that provides the military with the infrastructure to accomplish its missions.
The future force will require expertise in technology, acquisition management, exacting test and evaluation, sustainment of weapon systems and other highly skilled applications to support wartime operations, emergency preparedness and humanitarian missions.
In a time of tightening budgets: How do DOD critical skills gaps affect mission support functions? What is shaping force readiness?
Join us as we discuss manpower and talent required to support the warfighter and their influence on shaping force readiness.

According to Symantec’s 2011 SMB Disaster Preparedness Survey report, the findings show that though SMBs are at risk, they are still not making disaster preparedness a priority until they experience a disaster or data loss. Half of the respondents do not have a plan in place, even though 65 percent of respondents live in regions susceptible to natural disasters.
The data also reveals that the cost of not being prepared is high, putting an SMB at risk of going out of business. The median cost of downtime for an SMB is $12,500 per day.
According to the survey, downtime not only costs SMBs several thousands of dollars, it also causes their customers to leave. Fifty-four percent of SMB customer respondents reported they have switched SMB vendors due to unreliable computing systems.
Symantec’s Monica Girolami will discuss the findings from the Symantec 2011 SMB Disaster Preparedness Survey report, and share tips for small businesses to follow when pulling together a disaster preparedness plan.
A discussion on the current state of advanced threat protection and incident response preparedness that will include both highlights from Arbor's Worldwide Infrastructure Security Report (WISR) as well as original research by Arbor's Security Engineering & Response Team (ASERT). The WISR is a global survey of security professionals, highlighting the key trends in the threat landscape along with the strategies network operators adopt to address and mitigate them. We’ll also provide a deep understanding of two attack campaigns discovered by ASERT. One multi-stage attack campaign was focused on government organizations and a second was focused on financial services organizations.
This session will cover:
• The primary challenges facing security teams with emphasis on the balance between technology, people and process.
• Insight into attack campaigns happening on the broader Internet and an understanding of why it is critical to connect that activity to conversations on internal networks.
• How businesses are adapting and changing their threat detection and incident response to reduce risk posture
