Keeping Government Up and Running During an Emergency
September 17, 2009 I 2:00 PM – 3:00 PM EDT
What would you do in the case of an emergency? Are you prepared to keep the business of government up-and-running in the case of a power outage, a hurricane, or an enemy attack?
Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) mandates require all Primary Mission Essential Functions (PMEFs) to be back online within 12 hours of an event and be maintained for up to 30 days after an event or until normal operations can be resumed. Today, most agencies rely heavily upon IT solutions to accomplish job tasks associated with their PMEFs. While many agencies have developed COOP plans, most remain unable to meet the regulatory requirement of 12-hour business resumption without a virtual high-availability solution in place.
Join Nova Datacom and Juniper Networks on September 17, 2:00-3:00 pm, for an engaging talk about Keeping Government Up-and-Running During An Emergency. Topics include emergency response/crisis management, agency/business resumption, virtualized disaster recovery, strategy selection, business impact analysis, and risk assessments.

• To maximize the return on investment associated with continuity plans
• How to identify challanges that your agency faces and how to meet them
