You recognize the advantages of cloud recovery. You’re ready to get started. But before you jump in, there are a number of questions you should ask and changes you should prepare for.

What are the cost implications, and what level of performance will you get? Will transitioning to a cloud-based recovery solution speed up your recovery? Should you do it yourself or partner with a provider? Should you recover in a service provider’s environment or to the public cloud? What about your work loads running in a public cloud?

In this presentation, we’ll take an in-depth look at these and other key factors to consider when adopting a cloud recovery strategy.

A Second October Webinar...

Presented by the San Francisco Bay Area Chapter

Risks and Strategies Involved With an Electro Magnetic Pulse (EMP) Attack.

Date: Wednesday, October 30, 2019
Time: 1:00 PM Eastern; 10:00 AM Pacific
Presenter: Dr. Edward Goldberg, CBCP
Register here.

Why do you, as a continuity planner or resiliency SME, need to know what an EMP is? Do you need to worry about it? Prepare for it? What if our nation’s power went out and stayed out for 6 months or a year? What if phones stopped working? What if all motor vehicles stopped running? Ed will discuss the effect an attack would have on business and society and what is being done and/or can be done to mitigate and recover from it.

  • New Lessons from California’s Wildfires
    By David GeringMember, ACP Los Angeles Chapter As continuity planning and resilience professionals, it may be easy to become blasé about the many natural disasters that occur with seemingly increasing frequency.

As I write this on Friday, November 16, 2018, authorities are searching for over 600 people missing and feared dead as a result of the Camp Fire in Northern California. More than 20,000 evacuated from a town that was reduced to smoking rubble in hours. And then ...
