Disaster recovery and business continuity are two issues often overlooked by business owners in the hubbub of running their businesses, managing employees and ensuring they remain profitable. To help simplify the process, County College of Morris is holding a free informational breakfast on Business Continuity for Small and Medium Businesses on Thursday, January 26, from 7:30 to 9:30 a.m. on its Randolph Campus, 214 Center Grove Road, in the Student Community Center. Note: this is a change from the originally scheduled date of January 19.
The session will cover the three critical components of a successful business and continuity plan. Serving as keynote speaker will be Al Berman, executive director for the Disaster Recovery Institute. Berman is a certified Master Business Continuity Professional, a National Fire Protection Association member, a member of the ASIS BCP technical committee, a member of the Committee of Experts for ANSI-ANAB, a former member of the New York City Partnership for Security and Risk Management, executive director of the Disaster Recovery Institute (DRI) and the co-chair of the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation committee to create the new standard for the U.S. Private Sector Preparedness Act. Over a career that has spanned 25 years, he has served as a president and CIO for a major financial institution, national practice leader for Operational Resiliency for PricewaterhouseCoopers and Global Business Continuity practice leader for Marsh.
The snow date for the session is Thursday, January 26.
