Continuity Insights and the Contingency Planning Exchange have announced the full conference program, including keynotes, speakers, and sessions, for the 2018 Continuity Insights New York Conference, taking place October 22 at the Wyndham New Yorker Hotel in the heart of New York City.
A wide spectrum of sessions dealing with the future of resilience, BCM staff development, cyber security incident response, increasing organizational resilience, documenting an exercise, financial services resilience, and more will give participants the chance to exchange best practices, expand their horizons, and realize their full professional potential as they strive to build the ultimate resilient organization.
Featured speakers include representatives from Montague Risk Management, KPMG, Verizon Wireless, the New York City Office of Emergency Management, the Contingency Planning Exchange, and more.
“This is the most diverse conference program we’ve ever had for New York,” said Robert Nakao, Executive Publisher of Continuity Insights. “Our goal is to provide education, networking, and the exchange of ideas and information to all business continuity professionals, from millennials to seasoned practitioners, regardless of the sophistication of their technology, industry, or company size.”
The conference keynote session, The State of New York City Preparedness, will be presented by Joseph Esposito, Commissioner, the New York Office of Emergency Management. Esposito was appointed Commissioner in 2014 and is responsible for oversight of the City’s efforts to plan and prepare for emergencies, educate the public about preparedness, coordinate emergency response and recovery, and disseminate emergency information.
Attendees will have the opportunity to network with other practitioners during the attendee breakfast and lunch, breaks between sessions, and in the exhibit hall. More than two dozen business continuity service providers and consultants will be demonstrating products and answering questions in a relaxed setting during exhibit hours.
