Get Your Business Resilience Breakfast courtesy of Sungard Availability Services

16th June 2017

It’s often referred to as the most important meal of the day, but this Wednesday 21st June breakfast could be every bit as wholesome and nourishing for your company’s resilience as it can be for your own constitution…   

Join Sungard Availability Services as we join forces with The Irish Times to discuss the nature of risk, resilience and recovery in an age of global power outages, cyber attacks, political upheaval, and more.

Commencing at 7.50am with a welcome from The Irish Times’ Business Editor Ciaran Hancock, our expert speakers will address the current thinking behind today’s manifold business risks and how to successfully mitigate against them.  We’ll also hear from one organisation that continues to be in rude health 12 years on from the largest peacetime explosion Europe has seen. All thanks to its robust recovery strategy!
