As winter turns to spring, many of us feel a need to de-clutter and clean our homes and offices. It’s a timely reminder that data can also accumulate in organisations’ IT systems and archives, making it difficult to manage and expensive to store.

The 2013 Continuity Insights Management Conference, April 22-24, 2013, is less than three weeks away, and the team at Continuity Insights is gearing up for an exciting lineup of thought leaders, original content and recognized vendors.
The conference lineup includes three plenary sessions:
- In “The New Crisis Of Cyber Warfare — Are You Under Attack?” presented by David Chalk, Entrepreneur, Technology Expert and Visionary, Chalk will give attendees a clear picture of the current state of cyber warfare, and empower them to take the steps necessary to prepare for, and recover from, a cyberattack.
- In “Shots Fired: Managing The Operational Risk Of An Active Shooter Incident,” presented by Steven M. Crimando, MA, BCETSETSETS, CHS-V, Principal, Behavioral Science Applications, Crimando will give a candid presentation about the evolution of the active shooter threat, and introduce a comprehensive approach to active shooter prevention, response and recovery.
- To round out the plenary lineup, “From EF3 To FOB (Freight On Board) In 33 Days: Resilience At Spirit AeroSystems,” presented by Scott Norlin, BCM Program Manager, Spirit AeroSystems and Damian Walch, Director, Enterprise Risk Services, Deloitte, Norlin and Walch will share the feel-good business continuity story of the year — detailing how a disaster that could have easily disrupted operations was handled efficiently.
In addition to plenary sessions, the conference’s breakout sessions will detail how companies and organizations can better handle IT risks, crisis management, social media, pandemics, day-to-day decision making, and more. The pre- and post-conference workshops will offer an in-depth look at topics including BCI best practices and how to ensure a successful BIA, among others.
Do you have a business continuity conundrum of your own? If so, there’s good news: The popular “Ask The Experts” track is back, giving attendees the chance to present their problems, challenges and questions to the panel of experts, who will then provide real-world solutions.
After being on your toes, it’s important to kick up your heels. Therefore, the conference will also offer a number of relaxed events, including a welcome reception, a “Zoofari” celebration at the San Diego Zoo, a silent auction, and the Continuity Cares community service project (to be held at the San Diego Food Bank).

The most recent Amazon Web Services outage left customers (and rival cloud providers) blaming Amazon. Instead, CIO.com columnist Bernard Golden says, everyone needs to accept that cloud computing is not immune to failure. Fortunately, a key advantage of the cloud – cheap, easy redundancy – will help mitigate the risk of an outage.
DRJ to Present Special Session on Hurricane Sandy
Spring World 2013 will feature a new session, just added to the agenda, titled Hurricane Sandy – Learn From Those Who Made It Through The Storm.
After several close calls with hurricanes, executives at Florida Hospital in Orlando decided to rethink their disaster plans. A direct hit by a storm could, of course, endanger patients. But it could also destroy the technology that the facility depends on for medical records, clinical test results, and accounting.
