)-- Continuity Centers, a provider of flexible disaster recovery solutions, announced it is hosting a Disaster Recovery Open House on November 3rd for the business community and a Disaster Simulation Event for financial institutions on November 4th. Both events are being held at the Continuity Centers Woodbury, NY headquarters located at 1000 Woodbury Road. The Open House is open to businesses in all industries from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. and enables them to save valuable time and resources in searching for and learning about disaster recovery solutions.
The Open House on November 3rd will allow businesses to invest as little as one hour to learn what would normally take weeks or months of researching disaster recovery solutions. The Open House will provide attendees the opportunity to participate in live technology recoveries and visit a newly renovated mobile recovery unit with generator power and satellite for voice and data communications. There will also be tours of the disaster recovery hotsite, SAS70 data center and newly renovated mobile unit throughout the day. The mobile recovery unit will also act as the first Northeast Mobile Test Lab for Agility Recovery. People with titles such as CIO, CTO, CEO, CFO, Operations and Facilities Managers, Risk Managers, BCDR planners, business owners and anyone else who wants to protect their business should attend this event.
The Disaster Simulation Event for financial institutions will be held on November 4th from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. It has been designed specifically for the staff of banks and credit unions with titles such as Compliance Officers, Retail Management, Operations Managers, IT officers and anyone who actively participates in the business continuity planning process.
Continuity Centers and Agility Recovery, along with The Navis Group, are offering the simulation table top exercise to help institutions comply with their requirements and ease the testing of their business continuity plan. Regulatory bodies and administrations, such as the FDIC, FTC and NCUA, require all financial institutions to have a business continuity plan in place and test it annually, including an annual table top exercise. Attendees will be confronted with a simulated cyber-attack impacting the region, including attacks on our basic infrastructure: power, telecommunications and the internet.
“Continuity Centers welcomes all businesses to attend our Open House and explore how simple our disaster recovery solutions are and see the ways in which we can help them continue operations in the face of disaster. We are excited to display our newly renovated mobile recovery unit, along with tours of our SAS70 data center and recovery facility. This is an opportunity that every business should take advantage of by having a representative attend,” states Gregory Tellone, COO of Continuity Centers.
Explaining the importance of financial institutions attending the simulation event held on November 4th, Mr. Tellone adds “Preserving the operations of our country’s financial institutions is critical for our nation as well as for the financial institutions’ well-being and the availability of capital to businesses. This event will provide financial institutions and their employees an avenue for them to fully experience a disaster, before the next one occurs. Our event will assist attendees in meeting their auditing requirements as well as provide them with the necessary tools for their team to prepare for, navigate through, and successfully recover from the many types of interruptions they face. Continuity Centers is proud to partner with Agility Recovery and The Navis Group to host this event and shares in the excitement that our registrants have expressed.”
