3213 - Develop and Defend DR Strategies by Examining Disasters and Demystifying Common Myths

Wednesday, October 10
9:45 AM - 10:45 AM
Location: Floor 2: Galerie 1

Disaster recovery is not a one-time event, but an ongoing program that faces change agents from multiple vectors. Changes in regulatory frameworks, technology, the marketplace, the use of shadow IT and the drive to the cloud all change how DR plans are developed and tested. By examining previous disasters and common myths through the lens of these changes, security professionals can better prepare for unseen disasters. DR must be viewed as a business enabler and not as a penalty for doing business based on SLAs and internal and external customer needs.
