Personal Planning – Disaster Ready People

Date: Wednesday, March 21
Time: 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm EST
Presenter: Jim Satterfield, Co-founder/CEO, Firestorm Solutions
Register here.

Jim SatterfieldEvery crisis is a human crisis.

Jim Satterfield (right) co-authored the book “Disaster Ready People for a Disaster Ready America,” to guide individuals in developing their own preparedness plan at home. This benefits organizations of all types, because the fundamental building block to supporting employee performance at work is for them to know their families are safe at home.

In this session, he covers training employees for work and home – If employees do not have a clear strategy for their families, an emergency or disaster can force them to choose between family and work. Family will always trump work.

Firestorm provides its ebook, Disaster Ready People, to each participant, along with a condensed synopsis on how to create a plan at home.

  • A Layman’s Guide to Cyber Security (Actually, I do not think there is such a thing)
    No matter what steps we take to protect ourselves, the bad guys always seem to be one step behind and sometimes two steps ahead. I think the term “Cyber Security” is an oxymoron, at best a false hope. With all the data breaches (worldwide) from Equifax to Sonic Drive Ins, it is even more apparent that each one of us must take responsibility for our own personal data.  From health care to personal shopping habits, all our data is (potentially) exposed to the world. Having good Internet hygiene habits and strong passwords are no longer enough.  It doesn’t matter if you never us...
