Strategic Session 1
Protecting Your Brand in a Crisis
Protecting a company’s brand is vital. This session will demonstrate the importance of crisis management with properly prepared crisis management teams. The focus is on protecting a company’s brand through well thought out and exercised policies and procedures for both internal and external communications. Learn why call trees don’t work and the alternative approach taken at Nokia UK. Good and bad examples of external communications will be given. The dangers of “perceptions of truth” will be explored as well. Personal experiences will be shared from incidents in the UK: the Windsor Castle fire, aircraft crashes, serious fires, flooding and storm damage; and the many terrorist bombings London has suffered. The presentation is both informative and entertaining.

Emergency Response Session 1
Public/Private Alliance: Why It Is Important?
In the wake of recent natural disasters and the possibility of a pandemic flu, many public agencies have spent a good deal of time planning for emergency response. However, there are still a variety of gaps in our planning. There is also a lack of shared understanding about the resources and expertise resident in the private sector. The private sector can be a tremendous resource in information exchange, technology, and expertise, but is too often an untapped resource. Discover how San Mateo County, Visa and the local agencies have developed the San Mateo County Corporate Emergency Preparedness Forum to ensure the county can respond and recover efficiently and effectively in the event of a disaster.

Case Study: Workspace Recovery
at Constellation Energy

Organizations need to pre-plan loss of facility scenarios and establish alternate business sites to house their critical operations during a disaster. Discussion will include planning, selection, negotiation, construction, management, testing, and usage of various options. Depending on recovery time objectives, security philosophies, available resources, and budgets, organizations may build and manage an internal hot-site or warm-site, designate existing conference and training rooms as recovery sites, select a vendor’s retainer-based workspace recovery solution, choose the flexibility of a mobile recovery unit, or develop mutual aid agreements with other organizations to share resources. The costs, advantages, disadvantages, and logistics involved with these solutions will be highlighted.

Information Session 1
Incident Command Structures Help To Assure
Post-Disaster Business Survival
Most companies develop business recovery/continuity plans independent of a formalized Incident Command Structure (ICS), causing confusion during activations. An organized disaster management structure can be implemented before, during, or after a disaster or other natural, man-made, or technological event, providing organized response and management in key areas. We’ll examine the planning templates required to support each of these ICS tiers and how defined plans, processes, and trained teams can implement the ICS process before or after events, whether anticipated or unanticipated. Learn best practices in assessing the damage that occurred due to an event in order to organize and prioritize resources required to return (restore) the business to normal operations.
