Does Work Area Recovery Have a Future? 02 June 2010

"Does Work Area Recovery Have a Future?"

A backup site, also known as a work area recovery site, is a location that critical staff can relocate to following a major disruption. The third party work area recovery and DR industry has consolidated in the past few years in the London area and members are being quoted much higher renewal prices. Work area recovery costs are a significant portion of a company's budget for preparedness. Should companies continue to subscribe to these or are alternatives, such as increased home working, tipping the balance in favour of different means to an end?

Agenda

13:30 Registration – Tea/Coffee
14:00 Welcome & Introduction – Nick West, Chair - BCI London Forum
14:05 Work Area Recovery Survey Results
14:25 Tony Sanders - ICM, "The Future & Alternatives to Work Area Recovery"
14:45 Mike Smith – SunGard
15:05 Steve Terry – Case Study "Dumping the DR sites"
15:25 Tea / Coffee Break
15:35 Nick West – Burberry "3 more years ……."
15:55 Jon Pumfleet – Threadneedle Asset Management, "Information Security Implications of Home Working"
16:15 David Hills - ARK Workplace Risk, "Health and Safety Implications of Home Working"
16:35 Panel Discussion
16:50 Closing Summary
16:55 AOB
17:00 Drinks Reception
