Prepare Your Employees & Protect Your Organization
September 12th - 2pm to 3pm EDT
Without question, most businesses will admit their most important assets are their employees. However most businesses take very little action to help their employees and their families prepare for, and recover from disasters. While data recovery may form the backbone of a disaster recovery strategy, if employees are unable to report to work, having your systems back on line may prove worthless.
Join the US Small Business Administration and co-sponsor Agility Recovery as we welcome noted speaker, Mr. Dan Stoneking, Director of Private Sector at FEMA for this informative discussion on strategies and best practices for helping your employees prepare themselves and their families for a crisis. Without exaggeration, this information could literally change the future of your company, even protecting it from failure.

Join the US Small Business Administration and co-sponsor Agility Recovery as we welcome Laura Howe, VP of Public Relations with the American Red Cross as she discusses the steps and best practices for developing your own organization's strategy for Crisis Communications utilizing Social Media.
