The Top Five reasons you should attend!

  1. The Speakers! Experts from organizations ranging from Intel, the FBI, ABC News, Dept. of Homeland Security, Harvard, and MIT. Local, state, federal, and humanitarian agencies. Actual practitioners, not marketers.

  2. The Topics! What is it like to respond to a workplace violence event while it is being covered live on television and the social media? Leadership skills and resources available for the BCP Manager. Cutting edge updates on terrorism, pandemic, cyber threats, broadcast and social media, IT DR trends, leadership, legal aspects, and BC standards. Many case studies and analysis of actual events.

  3. The Networking! Access to our speakers and fellow attendees during the day and at evening networking events. Several interactive class activities.

  4. The Discount! Get a 10% tuition discount. Just enter DRJ10 in the course application's promotion code box.

  5. The Location! The MIT campus, Cambridge, Boston, and Massachusetts in summer. There's much to do. Bring the family!

Bonus reason #1: Attendees will also practice what is learned: the course concludes with a crisis exercise in which students take active roles in a simulated disaster.

Bonus reason #2: Proudly display your personalized certificate that you successfully attended a course at MIT.
