Reminder: BCP 101 – A Business Continuity Planning Beginner’s Checklist [free 30-min webinar]

This is a recap of a posting from last week and the only thing that’s changed since then is that more than 240 people have signed up to attend.  The only other thing that’s happened since then is that I’ve joined in on two practice sessions for this presentation and I can say with all honesty that it’s a valuable use of half an hour, not only for any business continuity neophyte but for seasoned veterans as well.  This is the sixth presentation in a year-long series of BC/DR webinars that are sponsored by ImpactWeather and, even for me – and I’ve been at this for a lonnnggg time – so far they’ve all been interesting and educational.  And I plan to keep it that way.

And come to think of it, aren’t we all business continuity professionals?  Regardless of your profession or position, shouldn’t we all be engaged in doing what we can to make sure any significant business disruption is quelled as soon as possible?  Shouldn’t we take the steps to mitigate the possible/likely/imminent disruption well before it happens?  So, join us tomorrow.  It’s free.  And, like I said, it’s educational and interesting.  Here’s what I wrote last week:

As with many critical processes, getting started is often the hardest part.  Join us on September 22nd at 10:30C for BCP 101 – A Business Continuity Planning Beginner’s Checklist, an introduction to Business Continuity Planning that will help you not only get the ball rolling but actually start the process with immediate momentum.   Learn more about the basics of disaster recovery, understand what you can do for an unplanned interruption and initiate simple steps to improve your preparedness today.
