Resilience: Justifying Disaster Risk Mitigation for Reliable Critical Facilities
What if I do nothing?

Jeremy Swanner of RLE Technologies joins us from Fort Collins Colorado in the U.S., just after his FMCC webinar Pay Me Now or Pay Me a Lot More Later: How To Get the Budget You Need to Prevent Catastrophes, Not Clean Them Up.  Stopping a critical business process for any length of time benefits no one but your competitors.  Bad enough are the effects on productivity, morale, and reputation, but recovery can be difficult, expensive, and incomplete.
Are you less than satisfied that you now understand and mitigate risks to your critical processes at an effective level against ordinary threats like a pipe leaking at night, all night, on the next floor up? Join Jeremy Swanner and David Reynolds to probe a subject that can be uncomfortable for FMs and top management.
