It should come as no surprise, the explosion of digital information is real and continuing to grow at a much faster pace than our ability to capture, preserve and use it effectively.

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 firstname.lastname@example.org. Acceptable questions will be forward to the general session panel. Thank you for your assistance in helping us further the business continuity education process.
