MIT announces date for its 2012 "Crisis Management / Business Continuity" Program!

MIT is pleased to announce its Professional Education Short Program: "Crisis Management and Business Continuity" for 2012. Join us at the MIT campus in Cambridge MA on July 23 - 27, 2012.

Our comprehensive program provides up-to-date assessments and knowledge on issues that affect companies and government agencies - terrorism, pandemic, cyber security, communications, news media - from the authorities involved with these efforts. Program lecturers are knowledgeable and experienced industry, academic, and government agency experts. Participants also have many networking opportunities to interact with the lecturers and with their peers.

This program is for the Business Continuity, Disaster Recovery, Emergency Management, and Crisis Management practitioner or responder as well for the executive who oversees these disciplines. Both novices and experienced personnel will benefit greatly from this program.

The program offers an effective combination of lecture, case studies, field trip, and class participation activities. Many case studies of actual crisis situations are used to emphasize and enhance the concepts. Several interactive class activities provide additional hands-on experience. Students will also practice what is learned: the course concludes with a crisis exercise in which students take active roles in a simulated disaster, including a realistic news media briefing.

Register by June 15 and save 10% on program tuition. Please reference priority code DRJ10.

This is the third year of our extremely successful program. For more information, click the banner or click here.




DRJ Winter 2012 - Volume 25, Issue 1



Do You Have A Question or Concern for a CEO, CFO or Other Executive?


DRJ is actively seeking input of questions to be used in our General Session 3, Monday, March 26 at Spring World 2012. This session will feature experts from our Senior Advanced Track in a panel discussion. Attendees of the Senior Advanced Track and those in other tracks will be attending this session together.

Now is the chance to get your voice heard and present the issues that matter the most to you or your organization.

We are seeking questions that encompass more than just basic business continuity information. We want the challenging inquiries - the ones that will make a C-level executive consider new methodologies and forge new ways into how we think about business continuity planning.

Examples of the types of questions we are seeking include:

  • How do I get management to support or champion the business continuity program?

  • Continual improvements are necessary for the BC program. How can we continue to get resources needed for the BC program?

  • How can our risk management program become an integral part of the BC lifecyle?

Questions should be submitted to patti@drj.com. Acceptable questions will be forward to the general session panel. Thank you for your assistance in helping us further the business continuity education process.
