“Delaying eco-tax refunds is a disservice to well deserving companies” - GreenPak
Any risks that a business faces which can stop its operations need to be identified, assessed and steps taken to mitigate against these risks. Common risks range from the threat of theft and fire, quality scares, the bankruptcy of key suppliers, the departure or illness of key staff and the risks associated with an organisations IT infrastructure. These latter continue to grow and their impact increases. Business Continuity is all about ensuring the continuation of an organisation’s business operations and it is the ultimate responsibility of the board of directors to ensure this continuity and not just the IT Manager.

This free event, is aimed at business executives, IT managers, risk managers, financial controllers, accounts and auditors, e-security personnel, systems administrators etc. The event will address issues of disaster planning and recovery, end-point security issues such as USB device control, anti-spam, anti-virus and other threat prevention, theft or loss of PDAs, Smartphones and laptops as well as the implementation of on-line off-site data backup.
