In the past year we have experienced an event like never before in our lifetime. The impacts of a global pandemic have affected businesses and organizations, and their ability to deliver goods and services. Taking the time to develop a business continuity plan can help organizations identify vulnerabilities, and develop mitigation strategies and contingency plans in order to reduce the negative consequences of all types of emergencies. This session will provide the knowledge and tools required to initiate a business continuity plan as well as enhancing emergency preparedness among staff members.
