The Disaster Experience - When Your Facility Gets Hacked Presented

Option 1: Tuesday, September 20 | 1- 4:15 p.m.
Option 2: Thursday, October 1 | 1:45 – 5 p.m.

Session description

Chances are that while you read this, an unexpected disaster, like your facility being hacked, is causing a facility manager stress and confusion. Are the facilities leaders prepared to handle it? Will they be able to recover? Disasters of every shape, size, look and feel happen all the time, affecting businesses, people’s jobs, lives and families.

This session has been designed to put you in the throes of a real-life disaster situation, as it unfolds. You will make the critical decisions any facility manager will have to make – and deal with the consequences of those decisions! After you’ve finished, you’ll understand the importance of advance disaster planning, effective communication protocols, and understanding the inherent risks in your facilities.

Never be caught unprepared again!
