This is a two part seminar conducted over two weeks. Attendees should register for both sessions. Future-Proof Your Business Series: Business Information Systems are the backbone of most business operations. The hardware, software and internet connections buzz along so efficiently that we rarely think about them – until something breaks. In this two part session the focus will be on building a robust technology plan that will enable your business to continue uninterrupted no matter the shocks it has to deal with.

At the end of the session attendees will:

  • Identify and create a plan to recover critical business data
  • Identify a plan to recover or replace business related hardware
  • Identify and create a plan to help budget properly for backup and annual operating costs and the resources needed to maintain a functional state
  • Identify and prioritize operational workflows
  • Identify ways to pivot during times of hardship and continue operations.
