Virtual Event: Disaster Management and Recovery

A Toolkit for Disaster Management and Recovery & Roadmap for Preparedness

Friday, January 22, 2021
(Start: 12.00pm ET / 9.00am PT)

Agenda Overview:

For public sector organizations, there is no room for service interruption. These organizations need to continue running mission-critical services to power essential platforms when faced with a natural disaster, emergency, or cyberattack. These services could be public call centers, patient and judicial databases, or online learning sites. A disaster management and recovery strategy is necessary for public sector organizations that need to be there for their communities.

When it comes to disaster management and recovery, what worked a year ago will not be effective today. So how are you going to address issues without reducing downtime, risk, compromising on data protection? What technologies to adopt? Is it cost-effective in a long run?

Join us at Public Sector Network’s Disaster Management and Recovery virtual event and gain the tools and skills you need to adopt and implement disaster management and recovery strategies in today’s unpredictable landscape.
