Survival advice and expert tips to support the next generation IT pro
For one day only: Jon Toigo presents a two part synopsis of the recovery planning challenge
For many IT professionals, the tasks of data protection and business continuity planning are doubly discouraging. Typically underfunded and understaffed, planning requires an investment of sweat equity just to build a business value case that can be presented to the front office. If successful, the second challenge of planning is to sift through hype and misinformation to develop solid strategies that make technical sense, meet recovery objectives, and are sustainable in the face of almost constant change.
The challenge begins in an effort to get business stakeholders to contemplate threats to business operations and reputation. All too often, business leaders need to be convinved that threats are real, but also surmountable with preparation.
Once management buy-in has been obtained, developing an effective plan requires the consideration of past events in order to 'understand them if only to avoid them." Planning also requires an on-going study of the latest technology innovations, and a sanguine analysis of what works versus what is simply popular because it is new.
This full-day seminar builds on the experience of independent expert - Jon William Toigo - as he puts a Les Miserables spin on business continuity planning. Jon routinely supports the development of business continuity and disaster recovery plans in hundreds of organizations, large and small.

Jon's work porfolio:
Independent expert, Jon Toigo, has helped hundreds of organizations - large and small - to develop business continuity and disaster recovery plans. Below is a short list of Jon's accomplishments:
- Established a data protection plan with a federal government agency that included archive and reduced overall storage capacity demand growth to about half of its anticipated rate. Data protection planning can deliver business value beyond risk reduction.
- Worked with a major power company to develop a high availability failover capability between an active and lights-out data center, with continuous data replication that enabled the selective failover of workload - saving the company the cost and effort of sending employees to the remote site for any reason other than a complete shut-down of the primary center.
- Helped relocate and resume service for hundreds of NYC businesses following 9-11, including the re-routing of voice and data networks, the deployment of on-the-fly networks, fast re-routing of applications and the consolidation of tape and disk based data restore activity.
